I read a diabetic tip on the internet last night on how to bring your sugar down fast. I tried it and it worked! My fasting Blood Sugar was 217 this morning , so I did what the tip suggested
I drank a bottle of water, went for a walk , drank another bottle of water then re-checked my sugar and it was 150 then I ate breakfast. The other day I ate breakfast on top of 223 fasting sugar and I ended up sick as a dog all day.

Do you have a tip to share for successful weight loss?

Hello , my name is Paulette.

IF (and that's a really big if) I am able to overcome a craving it's through distraction. I have to get involved in doing something else like exercise or cleaning.

Do you watch the morning news ? Local or National like Today or GMA ?

No not music but I like to listen to audio books while exercising, I tend to get lost in the book and find I exercise longer.

Do you find you have a hard time staying on you food plan for the whole day?
