Welcome to the team. I think this group is good for me because if I fill up on good stuff, I am not as likely to eat things that are not healthy. Vegetables are the best thing to eat, IMHO. for many reasons. My #1 tip: try to include at least one vegetable in every meal or snack.
Denise - - Hi and welcome to our site. I'm Judy, Type II Diabetic. Be sure to use your nutritional and fitness trackers every day, drink your 8+ glasses of calorie-free beverages/water and get your 8 hours of sleep a night. Set small goals - 5%-10% of your total weight loss to start. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We are all here to help and encourage each other.

You could make a wish - OR, you could make it happen.
Welcome to a great team. Take time to look around the site - there are many great resources including the food tracker, recipes and just the other members. I think it is important to make changes you can live with so start small and focus on being healthier. Drink plenty of water and add whole foods (fruits and veggies) to your diet. I wish you much success!!!

Hi, I'm Denise. I have about 35 lbs to lose. I am skirting on the pre-diabetes level and do not want to take medication. This issue can be solved with better nutrition and exercise. I bounce between great resolve and short-term follow-through to the "why bother, maybe I am meant to be this way" mentality. I enjoy SparkPeople and would like to use the site and all of its resources as my priority plan.
