If you don't set a goal, how will you ever know when you reach your goal?
So, my list of the strategies I will be using to reach 175...by .Nov. 2013
1. Eat a lot more veggies & fruit.
2. Limit unhealthy food and keep tracking on SP.
4. Sleep better, with a little leg & waist exercises before sleeping, because insomnia and weight loss don't work together.
5 Go to bed earlier to avoid food temptations at nite and because my body likes to get up early.
Well I've been around for 3 years now. The initial 20 lbs. are off again. Way back in the beginning: The harder I tried the more challenges I faced- I have persevered despite no losses showing on the scale and learned to see other measures of my success. Being diabetic, my blood sugar is a major indicator of successful results. When I started on SP, my bs were in the 13-15 range for early a.m, now I have my AIC go down to 6.9, and I'm still here and getting motivated again. So, there are successes other than on the scale.
Words of Wisdom:
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance....
To get my sugars under control with diet and exercise so I don't have to take any more meds or go on the needle for as long as I can avoid it.
Dec. 09 - a.m. bs was 13
Feb. 10 - a.m. bs was 7.8
May 10 - a.m. bs. was 6.1
July 2013 AIC - 6.9
Sept 2016 AIC 9.8
Well,now it's 2017 and I had to acknowledge that my body needs the help of insulin in November 2016. So, now my goals are to get a balance of carbs/pro/fat and healthy blood sugars...
Do Walk Away the Pounds or walking outside weather permitting at least 5 days a week.
Track calories and stay with SP range...
I love to read, knit, crochet, and read.
I'm a gramma of 4, ages 18, 16, 9 and 7 y.o.'s... and new g.d. born in April, 2011 - none of which I have seen in over a year.
I love a variety of food and am always looking for new recipes and have already found lots here that I really like.

I eat my cottage cheese plain or with fruit. A lady that I met recommended heating it with vanilla and cinnamon and eating it on toast with a little sweetener. I may try that.

I am bound and determined to meet you in person somehow.
Fingers crossed: I am hoping to bring a couple young ladies home with me. Helena will be 8 months old on Saturday. I don't know where the time went! two teeth - red hair coming in - started crawling about a month ago and hasn't stopped. The best time for me to Skype with her is when she's eating. That's the only time I know she won't be alll over the place.
