Wouldn't it be nice to just lounge and listen to the ocean roar anytime we wanted?

Mostly because I went inactive on SparkPeople and fairly inactive in my life. A recent diagnosis of pre diabetes has sent me back to the place where I was initially successful. To do it again.

I have been on SP for about 7 years I think. In that time I lost 20 pounds, maintained it for two years and then gained five pounds per year. Mostly because I went inactive on SparkPeople and fairly inactive in my life. A recent diagnosis of pre diabetes has sent me back to the place where I was initially successful. To do it again. It is frustrating to think I can't wave a magic wand and start my healthy eating at the place I was five years ago but I know what it will take to eventually get there:
1) Exercise at least 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week, as well as walk sufficient steps to total 10,000.
2) Follow healthy eating plan, counting and recording calories, daily. Stick with pre-diabetes plan.

Thanks for being so gracious about my comment. I looked at it again and it sounded a bit pretentious. But my heart is in the right place!

Val, Thanks for giving me some slack. You are 100% correct, you don't have to make all the changes at once. And I definitely am on your side. Take care. Keep up the great efforts!! -Marsha
