I logged in this morning and had to guess at my password. It has been way too long since I have logged in and read mail and testimonies. 196 days to be exact {gasp}. If you could see me you would know that I am in dire need of the help I get here. I am depressed about the fact that I just continue to gain weight and don't seem to have enough motivation to do something about it. No doubt I am pre-diabetic and you would think that that would be enough but it is not. Soooooo.....I am checking in and looking around to see if I can't jump start some interest in myself to do better than I am doing.

    Consider reading "Stop Pre-dieabetes Now" by Jack Callem and Ron Hunninghake. The principals are similar to that of South Beach, but has a slightly different twist. I just started doing South Beach a few weeks ago and it has made a big difference in mindset. I found it easier to make a wholesale change in diet than just trying to cut calories here and there. And I knew the changes I was making were for my health, not just to look good. I figure I do it now, or end up with diabetes within 10 years. Committ yourself to a short-term goal that is doable and it feels great to accomplish it! You can do it!
