My pre-diabetic challenge

Sunday, July 24, 2011

I have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, so my goal is to lose 16 pounds in the next 8 weeks and become stronger, eat healthier, and have better test results in eight weeks. I already drink my water and meet this goal everyday. I need to track MORE consistently.

My goals for this week are:
1. three videos for strength training
2. continue my daily swim for 30 - 60 mins
3. track my food intake at least 3 days

I know that I can do this - I have done many challenges on Spark been successful!

    Best of luck, Jean! Thank goodness you found the condition before it became something worse! My mother has been diabetic for about 15 years now.

    Claire, the difference in the diets is the whole grains. Whole grains need to be eaten in severe moderation. I still eat whole grains as I hate white bread, potatoes, rice,ect... but I have it severe moderation. I do not eat much sugar, sweets are not my problem. I removed sugar from my diet almost 7 years ago. When I drink tea - it is plain tea, which used to be the main time I would have sugar.

    I do not know enough about my condition yet, but you are right. I will figure it out. Sometimes I hate that I am such a strong person, because I come across as not needing help, when sometimes I DO.

    Thank you for your comments!

    If there is a difference between the diabetic diet and the kidney diet, the kidney diet wins, so there isn't much you need to change - maybe some further reduction in sugar if you eat any. And eat less whole grain products.

    I have no doubt you'll figure it all out cuz you're strong and you make things happen!

    I know you can do this Jen you are a strong person. Going through all the surgery, and health issues, and going to school i know you can do this.
    When i was in my 30 my sugar was very high Dr. put me on diet control, and i did it, brought my sugar down. I was scared because my grandmother and dad were diabetics. My dad also had kidney disease. My sugar has never elevated since then and i am so glad.
    I love your goals. emoticon emoticon
