Lost 20 Pounds This Year Without Trying

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

I started out the year at 230 pounds. Implementing rackets sports at least twice a week and watching what I eat has made the difference. Now I am down to 210 without trying. You see a couple years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes with an A1C of over 9. Immediately they placed me on 3 medications get my sugar under control. Now to bring you up to date I have an A1C less then 6 without any medication.

So for 2013 I am going to sit down and set some new goals. I am thinking I would like to get my A1C less then 5.5 and drop some fat in the first 90 Days of 2013. I am going to also be more consistent with my goal for resistance training. I find that the most convenient form of resistance exercise is using resistance bands. I know if I can just consistently incorporate just 20 min of resistance exercise 2 times a weeks I will get results.

    Good for you!! I know this isn't easy but you have done it and I'm sure in the new year you will also complete your goals. We all must take control of our lives and treat ourselves better as we are so worthy of being the absolute best we can be!!

    Way to go! Most of my family members have Diabetes but they refuse to eat healthy or exercise to improve their health. I am lucky enough to not have been diagnosed with it yet thats why I am making the choice to change my life now before it does happen. emoticon
