Hi,
I'm Debbie a Type 2 Diabetic, on my way to a healthier lifestyle!
On July 29th my Dr. said he wanted me to lose 10% of my weight. On my home scale I weighed 244. I started walking the next day on the treadmill and keeping my calories below 1800 which is what the website I went to suggested.
I weighed myself this morning and I have lost 11 pounds. I think I can do this. But I have decided since finding Sparkpeople that I would like to lose more than just 10%. I hope I can ...

My Goals:
My goal is to control my Diabetes through dieting and exercise and hopefully to be able to have my medication reduced.
My blood sugars have been way more in line since I started exercising.
I have an A1C test coming up mid Oct. and I am hoping my Dr. will have good news for me.

Just received my A1C results, 5.8 WOOT!!!!
My cholesterol was down to 137 as well. I am very excited.

My Program:
For the last 3 weeks now I have been walking on the treadmill 40 minutes a day, at 3.5 mph or 2.34 miles.
I have also been doing 7 or 6 strength training exercises Mon.-Wed.-Fri.
Bought an exercise bike and have been doing that 30 minutes 5 nights a week.
I also do yoga poses, aerobic games and balance games on the Wii fit 2 or 3 times a week.
The yoga poses are getting easier as I go.
Balance has never been my strong suit.
I have more energy these days than I have in ages.

Thanks for the positive thoughts ,True seems to be doing better.I have to wit till next Wednesday to get the results of the bloodwork to get her on proper arthritis meds but the vet said she is in really good shape for her age so that made me feel better ! True is begging for treats right now !

Even if Al weren't deployed I'd never get him to sign that either but it was worth it for comic relief I emailed it to him and he sent it back saying you must be joking !

I don't think I have ever seen a deer chihuahua before. She certainly has personality plus.Yes True is a character , she was a rescue dog too.It fascinates me that someone would pay for a purebred dog and then have her seized by the police which is what happened to True. She needed a good home and I took her home we have been inseparable ever since .I like to think my previous dog led me to her.He had just died of brain cancer and my vet knew that my husband's dog was old too old for a puppy in the house when the police showed up at her clinic with True she checked her over and phoned me and said if I would be willing to work with her she loved other dogs she was just leery of old men and she was 6 years old so not too playful for Kira (who has since died but she lived to 16) Sorry I have blathered on telling you so much but she is my baby now!!!
