I am so pleased to be a part of this team myself... so many SMART people! LOL

You'll see, the great advice you've been given really works. All you need to do now is follow through on it, keep posting and using the tools and learning--and you can make such a HUGE difference in your own life!

Welcome to the team. the Lady Mary will tell you always drink the water, Measure your food. Exercise and of course use the trackers. She has a wealth of knowledge. She has told us all measure our food and drink the water. She has also told us when you stop measuring and number go up go back to measure. Eating out in restaurants bring the collapsable measuring cups in your purse. Ask for a to go box put the extra in that then eat your meal. You will be amazed how large portion size. Love and Light Carol

welcome to the team this is the place to get it done and keep it done
you need to log your food but better yet you need to weigh and measure those portions..it's a hard thing to do but after a few weeks it becomes second nature
you need to get into drinking the water it the thing that makes it all work i should know i've been diabetic for 25 years at least and i hated the stuff find some water that tastes good to you and drink it..you will never regret that
losing the weight is good you will find if you do the above two things and add a little movement to it (walk dance whatever) the pounds will come off
sparkpeople works
how do i know this?? 378 to 105 and maintaining that 273 pound loss for over four years now
again welcome

I agree with Elaine on tracking the food and exercise. If I don't track, I get off track!! If I do, I know what I should be eating, and more importantly, the correct amount!!! When I was diagnosed with diabetes, I started following the food tracker, and was discouraged that the weight was coming off so slowly, but it has picked up lately...I guess my body wanted to hold on to the fat that I carried around for so long. I guess my moral is, Don't give up!!!

You've come to the right place. I've only been here for a short time, but reading everyone's encouraging words has made a difference for me. At the end of May I gave up "sweets." But shortly after I realized that it was going to take more - eating healthy and well balanced meals and snacks, exercising, logging it all onto Sparkpeople, reading blogs and articles. I think it is all working together for me. I have a ways to go in my weight, maybe 45 pounds or so. I'm out of town so I cannot weigh on my own scale. I think that tracking my food and exercise was a true eye opener for me when I saw how many calories were in a certain item. I was shocked. I thought I knew so much about food, health and nutrition, but I was only kidding myself.

Wish you the best in this health journey,
Elaine

Your right in the weight loss, just a few pounds at a time will help your numbers as will diet an exercise. Accomplish those an you will see those pounds drop. Many times inches an loose clothing will show progress way before the scale will. Controlling those numbers is not an easy job, it takes work an planning an the want to control Diabetes. Yes, you want to control Diabetes an not have Diabetes control you. Stay with this group an get the Support, Encouragement, and Motivation you need to accomplish the task.

Post often so we known what areas you need help in. ........See you soon!
