Member Since: 6/18/2014

SparkPoints: 30,185

Fitness Minutes: 9,894

My Goals:
Starting weight: 224

My weight goals:

1st - get below 200 - DONE!
2nd - get to 180
3rd - get to 150

My other goal is to ultimately get my diabetes under control with diet and exercise, as much as possible, and get off my medications completely.

My Program:
I don't follow one specific type of diet, I choose to avoid processed foods, fast foods, sodas, etc. The foods I eat are whole foods, natural and fresh. I also follow a low-carb diet. I avoid grains and sugars as much as possible most of the time since those tend to cause my blood sugar to spike.

I guess you could say that I'm more of a Paleo/whole/clean food eater with a dash of Trim Healthy Mama thrown in.

I avoid processed/prepackaged food as much as possible and go with real food.

I go to the gym before work almost every weekday and usually focus on the weight machines. I alternate between upper body machines one day and lower body machines the next. I often stop at the gym on my way home and walk on the treadmill, then reward myself with the hydromassage bed and/or the total body therapy machine.

Thank you so much for the blog comments! I agree, when you choose your love, it does get a little easier, but there isn't much easy about this journey we are all on. I have good days and bad days, and I'm sure I will for the rest of my life. The best lesson I've learned is to keep getting RIGHT back up. Don't lay there and feel sorry for myself (for a year and gain all the weight back!) but get RIGHT back up. Not having a loss one week isn't that bad. But gaining back all of my progress is NEVER something I want to happen!
