A NEW BEGINNING!

At one time I weighed 288 lbs. I might have weighed more but was afraid to admit it to even myself. I did have the thought of reaching the Goal of 300 lbs! (Only because I was so close, and I thought it kind of a funny thing to do.) I could not even carry the 288 lbs so, I had to lose. About four times, in the past 30 years, I have gone down to 203 lbs, but I have not gone under 200 lbs.

I started to lose again, two months before joining Sparks, and I weighed 250 lbs, and I ...

About four times, in the past 30 years, I have gone down to 203 lbs, but I have not gone under 200 lbs.

I started to lose again, two months before joining Sparks, and I weighed 250 lbs, and I started Sparks at 232 lbs.

I started to lose again, because I am Officially labeled, and am a Diabetic now since 2003, and probably like most, was Diabetic many years before that.

In 2010 - 2014, I was Out Of Control! My sugar numbers were going over 200 most every night. When my morning fasting number hit 224..that was the day I said, "No more!" said it again when another year it hit 238 in the morning. I didn't feel good, but didn't feel that bad either. During these years my weight went as high again as 232. Same old up and down.

If I want to live, and in one piece, I Have to Change! I am going down once again, once again I am going to try and do good every day.

I Can't wait any longer! (Again)
I want to live Well for the remainder of my years.
I don't want to be FAT any longer.
I want to be a Diabetic in Total Control.
I want to LIVE, and with all the pieces I have now.
I Don't take any medicines, and I don't/won't ever start.
I am Fired up and Determined to do something Now!
.....Yes Again... but Again ... I AM TRYING REAL HARD!

Hi Slimmer, Have you ever heard of the "Ketogenic Diet"?

If you have and feel like commenting on it, I'll watch Gen Chat for your reply. No need to reply just to me.

If you haven't heard of it, check it out sometime. It sounds just like the eating plan that you're using.

I over heard some guys at the gym talking about it.

Take care,
Grace

emoticon for having your painting chosen to hang in the Governor's building. You must be VERY PROUD!

I don't know if you're getting these comments I'm sending. I sure hope so!

Hi Slimmer, Dahlonega just made national news on NBC because of your bad weather. I hope everything is going OK with you. I'll be watching Gen Chat for you to check in so we'll know you're alright.

Take care,
