I've been struggling with keeping up with the program for about a year. However, except for a few weeks, I've kept struggling. I've gained back 25 of the pounds I lost the year before, and I've been very frustrated. HOWEVER, the struggle pays off even if some of the numbers are going in the wrong direction.
I visited my doctor yesterday and was pleased to learn that even my half measures and struggles had raised my good cholesterol and improved my liver, kidney and glucose levels.
The moral of the story. Track your food, exercise every day, etc. but if you fall off the wagon, keep struggling to get back on. Every effort is progress!

    Well, thank goodness! Honey, you can do this! You are so worth it! I know every day is a battle, but be a soldier and make yourself stick to it. Eat super healthy and when you are tempted, eat a piece of fruit. I have been eating very ripe kiwis (less tart) and watermelon and papaya. Please let me know how you are doing. I want to be a better cheer leader for you! Prayers and hugs!

    Glad to hear you got some good news out of it. This could be motivation to get totally back on the wagon. Good luck!
