Hey, all of you people out in cyber territory! I am so happy that I have these four mini-goals that I got the idea for from Jibbie. She is doing well with her program! I am finally entering in all of my food piece by piece and I have most all of my new food choices nutritional value entered also. There were quite a few on my favorites list. I am cutting way back on fat in foods and when I bake and cook, I am adapting the new recipes to the new types of food I intake. I feel like a chemist again. My son has a chemical engineer and he and I went into a long discussion once on how it takes being a chemist to do this kind of tracking and adapting recipes. He did all his own cooking in college and he had a system like I'd never heard of. He was an engineer like my son is, but this guy, Andy, was a....you guessed it, a Chemical Engineer! I always loved chemistry so I ran with it. I have been given the Weight Watcher's Diabetic Diet! I was told by my doctor that the WW diet was designed by a woman who was diabetic. Portion size and fat and protein content are the most important aspects of this eating plan. THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT I AM NOT BORDERLINE DIABETIC LIKE I THOUGHT! I AM PRE-BORDERLINE DIABETIC WHICH ISN'T EVEN DIABETIC YET! So, I am really amping up my efforts and I hope that I will be visiting a tailor very soon because as it is, none of pants/slacks/jeans fit me anymore. I am so pleased with myself. And to reward myself I am going out to Phoenix AZ in June to visit and stay with two really great girlfriends and we are going to celebrate! WooHoo!
The land of the Sun. I'm getting a new dress or bathing suit while out there!
My best wishes for your eating and exercising all of you ladies out there!

    Such great news about the Diabetes so you can stop it in its tracks hopefully. I am diabetic but my Ha1c level was 5.83 last time so that means for 3 months my average was just like a normal non-diabetic. It is so much easier not to have to deal with this condition if you can make changes in weight and diet etc.
