Hi Glenda and welcome to the team! What part of CO are you in? I'm up in Ft Collins :) If you're not already a member the Official Colorado team is full of really nice people :) Best of luck!

Try to think of this is a life style change, not a diet. You can eat most foods, but in moderation. I know that emoticon

emoticon to the team. Check out Chia Seeds they help with blood sugars among other things and have them everyday and has made huge difference in my blood sugars. Also have you tried anything like the Budwig Sauce this is really good on fresh fruit and it might be beneficial as well. You just take 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1-2 tablespoons of Organic Flax Oil and Kefir (any flavor) and blend till creamy. I put it over strawberries and blueberries this time of year.

My name is Glenda and I live in Colorado. I have been fighting the "Battle of the Bulge" ever since I can remember. I don't think the problem is that I can't lose. It's that I won't lose - in other words stay on my eating program. I think I am desperately looking for a place to fit in.

I am starting back (again) on the WW program. I can't afford the meetings, so will be doing it on my own at home. I am an insulin dependent diabetic that doesn't take care of my blood sugar like I should. I also have COPD and am on oxygen 24/7.

I am looking forward to meeting the people in this group. I'm very glad I found you.
