Chin up , down, chin up chinn down, that is exercize. Arms tart small not all at once. water and salade before the rest of the meal. Open heart team is not large but some times knowing where others were when after can calm your nervs.

I NEED NEED NEED everybody's help! I'm pre-diabetic and need to lose LOTS OF WEIGHT. I keep taking off a few and putting them right back. Now I'm likely going to have open heart surgery for a genetic condition (I'll know for sure in about 2 wks.) The heart situation very much limits my physical activity. I desperately want to get out of this rut!

I'm so proud of all of you who are making great strides. Your positive outlook and hope have kept me going---and I thank you so much for that!

Anything the human mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

Mediterranean diet may be best for diabetes and heart. The DASH diet seems even better for the heart.

All within a very short time I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and hypertension. I went from taking the occassional advil.. to having a cupboard dedicated to medicine.. Couple months after I found out - My 14 year old was diagnosed type 1. UGHHHH.. Now we have all 3 shelves of 1 cupboard dedicated to medicine and insulin supplies.

We have days - both of us - where we feel like we are cursed.. but mostly we have days where we are hopeful and in a strange way even thankful. We now eat much healthier. We are very concious about what we are putting into our bodies - and myself (without even really trying) I have lost about 25 pounds.

This site has motivated me to stay connected and informed.. and I've even joined a gym.. (I hate hate hate excercise!!!) and yes I have gone.. LOL

Bottom line is that right now we are healthy.. (with a few minor hiccups here and there) and focused on staying that way.

I am the biggest "in denial" person out there.. I procrastinate the crap out of everything and have up until recently been existing in my life rather than living it. Now I feel hope - and a sense of purpose and direction....

If I can do it - I KNOWWWW all of you can do it for sure!!

I'm 24 and I've been chubby all my life. I've always been worried that I'm pre diabetic and after a recent bout of research, I've become even more paranoid. I want to lose around 35 pounds to get to 145. I've already taken steps, such as portion control, reducing unhealthy foods as much as possible and exercising frequently. Unfortunately my self-control comes in spurts and my number one problem area is regaining control quickly after a slip-up.
