10 POUNDS AT A TIME

When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10 at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

Since then I lost a total of 96lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

Update: my cholesterol is now 181 and the HDL is 51...so I'm good and life is wonderful!

...yipee...will continue to watch carbs, starch and sodium and move every 20 minutes.

Hello Sunshine! Thanks for your comment on my blog about ditching the scale. It looks like you've done very well in losing weight and regaining health. I started on that path (using the scale and also tracking food). But I do think that obsessive weighing a crutch for me. I'll keep posting. emoticon

Hello Sunshine ! Thank you so much for stopping by with your encouragement on my blog....and yes, my pre-diabetes seems to be part of the cause of my stroke...

Have been staying away from sugar, since... and don't miss it!

Have a great day,
Risa
