Hi, I hope I'm on the right page. In the next eight weeks I'd like to lose eight pounds, eat nutritious food so that I eat all the protein, iron and other minerals that Sparkpeople's nutrition guide says I should. It is hard for me to eat enough "nutritious" food to consume enough calories so any one who has ideas about that, please let me know. I currently weigh 199 pounds and am supposed to eat a minimum of 1465 calories.

I have lost focus over the past several months. I WILL retake control & refocus my thoughts & energies to achieve my original goal to lose 5 lbs this month & keep my BG'S lower & stable with the end result of gastric sleeve surgery this spring.
God is my support & strength.

I will follow the leading of my Lord, Great Physician and best Supporter. I will have faith and trust. He created me perfectly and I will find joy in Him!

I've been diabetic for 50+ years and have gone from diet control only thru all the various meds and finally, to insulin only. I started taking insulin with other meds and did for many years, but after a nasty bout with lactic acidosis (a rare side-effect of metformin use) I am now taking insulin only.

Those of you who take insulin probably know how it causes your weight to sneak up on you. For me it was just 5-6 pounds a year. That's only about 8 oz a month... 2 oz a week. Really sneaky!

Now I am at a point where pants don't fit right, I have a rather round tummy, flabby arms, etc. At my age, 79, it is very difficult to lose weight. They also tell us that older people who are a little bit overweight live longer.

So my goal is to lose 20 pounds in a slow healthy way. At the end, I will still be "overweight." but clothes should fit better. At that time, with my medical team, I'll re-evaluate whether I want to lose more.

My goals are to lower my A1C. This will be my second time thru the 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge. The first time I did well and got my A1C down to 6.7, but my endocrinologist changed my meds and ended up with pancreatitis. Now my A1C is running 10.9 and I just want to feel good again.

Gastric Bypass Surgery 9/26/2012. I weigh 369 from 399. Down to 309 this morning.

My goal is to get back to eating healthy - adding produce to every meal, and getting into the habit of exercise. The end result will be weight loss, confidence and even better A1C!

Just started the challenge today. Got a letter from my Dr. that stated that my fasting BS has constantly raised over the last couple of years, and is no at the pre-diabetic level. So my goal is to reduce that number back to a normal level.

Linda

I will keep a positive attitude.

I will learn the difference between an excuse and fact.

I have done the challenges for week 1. Not sure how to register them and get to week 2

My aim is to modify my attitudes and behaviours in eating and exercising so that every chance of losing weight and being my best self is realised. To do this I will follow and complete each week's challenge and learn from my mistakes.

My goal for the next 8 weeks are:

My goals for the next few weeks is just to learn to make good decisions again. I have been on an emotional roller coaster for the past few years and my mind is finally beginning to focus again. In 2012 I discovered that my spouse of 15 years was cheating on me and just a few short months later our 11 year old son was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric brain cancer. Our son passed away after a 14 month battle with a monster that took every ability he had away. We decided that we would not change anything in our household again for one full year...we needed to not traumatize our other children so soon after the death of their brother. So marriage counseling was started, every week, for 15 months. During this whole time, during the discovery of the affair, my son's illness, his passing, and the 15 months after that...I just didn't care about me. I never went to the doctor, I ate what I wanted when I wanted. Last year I finally started coming back into the right mindset of taking care of myself too. I started going back to school and have almost earned my Bachelor's degree. Even though terrified...I went to the doctor. I am diabetic now and during those "non-caring about myself" years I put on over 40 pounds. I am taking things slowly and one step at a time. I still have serious troubles around my son's birthday and the anniversary of the day he died, but I see a therapist now to help me through those times. So my goals right now are just to learn, again, how to take care of myself, make good decisions most of the time with food, start exercising again and work on caring about my health.

I had lost about 50 pounds 5 years ago and was working out 5 days a week. Soon after getting married and moving almost 3000 miles away from my family, friends and career, my weight started climbing back up. Knees that I abused in sports as a teen are now very angry at me, my blood pressure and glucose levels are higher than they should be and I need to lose weight. So....I am determined...I am ready to work hard....and I can't wait to see some positive results in the future. My goal is to lose that 50 pounds and get my health back in check. Thanks for this forum and I wish you all the best in your efforts! Let's get moving!!

Two years ago I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic with PCOS as well. I was NOT going to become diabetic, so I made a drastic change to my lifestyle and safely dropped 35 lbs. Although I did this safely, I still did it faster than I should have. I had some major life changes about a year and a half after I started which included moving 500 miles away from everything I knew and taking on a highly stressful job where I work approximately 80+ hours a week. I've gained all but 7 of those 35 lbs. back. Something clicked a few days ago before Thanksgiving and I just decided that I'm done. I realize I can't do this on my own. I realize I have a food addiction. I realize that this is as much a spiritual issue as it is a food issue, and I'm done with fighting it on my own.

Initially I was to lose 85 lbs. That's the first major goal. I then want to lose an additional 15 lbs. to meet my weight from high school (no worries - it's healthy. I've checked!). My doctor told me the last 15 may or may not be possible for me to lose AND stay healthy, but he said the 85 will definitely be okay. I'm not sure when I managed to gain so much weight. I hide weight pretty well, as the difference between my size of jeans from high school to being three years out of college is "only" 3-4 sizes.

Regardless, health is my goal. In eight weeks I'd like to see a good 10-15 lbs. gone with a regular exercise routine in place that I'm sticking to (using the one from here obviously), drinking one gallon of water per day, and one cheat meal per week (guys, as long as Chick Fil A is open, I will continue to order a #1 with the darn waffle fries lol).

Here we go!

My goal is to lose 10 lbs and do cardio 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes. Fighting insomnia so I can wake up and do my cardio is my biggest challenge.

I really really really want to get my labs back in line -- and I don't want to do it by taking a pill.

I eat really healthy but haven't been able to lose weight. I'm tired of being stuck.

Stay focused on my exercise, AI-C is always great but I can't handle night time eating. I try to bed early so as not to eat but wake up hungry. Waking up to FBS under 140 would be great and I'm trying to stay within the daily recommended carbs but I enjoy bread.

Want to feel confident in the choices I make to keep me leveled and not feel hungry all the time.

My goals over the 8 week program are to figure out where there are problems with my nutrition. I do need to focus more on the amount of carbs at each meal and snack.

I want to incorporate new strength training and cardio routines especially seated exercise for the meantime.

My goals for this challenge:

Lose 8 pounds in 8 weeks. As this is over the holiday season, I think anything more would be unreasonable.

Learn more about living with diabetes -- I am very newly diagnosed and am very frightened.

Meet the steps for each week as outlined in the challenge.

I think those are pretty big steps for now. I don't want to set unrealistic goals that will make me feel like a failure if I don't meet them.

My life has taken on a new direction. I am a grandmother raising a 9 yr old grandson and will soon be raising his 4 yr old half sister. Their father is deceased (my son) and their mothers are AWOL and will never be able to raise them since they haven't been in their lives since they were extremely small. I am all they have at a chance for a normal life. My goal is to LIVE AS LONG AS I CAN AND AS HEALTHY AS I CAN SO THEY CAN HAVE A HAPPY FAMILY LIFE.

Therefore I have to lose weight, reduce stress, get my BS under control. I NEED YOUR HELP

Hello everyone,

I keep hopping on this train and falling off again. I've been struggling with a lot of other things in my life, stress, anxiety, work/life balance and just trying to stay on top of things. I guess what's most important is that I keep coming back and know that I need to work hard and make a difference in my health.

My goals for this challenge:
-track my food
-track my fitness

My goal is to get in the habit of doing some type of exercise regularly. Also, mixing up what I do. I was starting to get some exercise in everyday in the pool, but I learned a hard lesson. We went to an Oktoberfest this past weekend. It was a lot of games and dancing and walking, although it was 4 hours on my feet. The next day, every inch of my body hurt. In the pool, the water held me up.

To be more conscientious about what I put into my body, to drink more water, and to move more! Small changes will yield big results in the long run!

Hi everyone! My goals for this eight week challenge is to develop new habits for eating, drinking water, and exercising. I currently eat out to much and drink Diet Coke and only excercise every once in a while. I want to lose weight and develop the new habits so that I can get off medications. I also want to lose weight for my daughters wedding (there is no date yet but it's in the works). Good luck to all. Have a great day!

My goal is to learn more about Diabetes, over the last 9 months my A1C has gone from 5.7 to 7.2. I have been trying for it to go down and frustrated that it is increasing despite my efforts. October is when I get the A1C test again and I sure hope that it goes down. I am following what my Dietician has suggested and what my Diabetes nurse has talked with me about. I am joining the 8 week challenge to also help with my goal and to bring down the A1C. If my A1C goes above the 7.2 I will have to go on insulin as I am taking the maximum dose of Glimepiride.

I'm back on here and want to get my FBS under control as well as get my A1c down. I had major surgery in May and my fasting was initially ranging from the high 180's to the high 200's right after surgery and now they're ranging from the low 150's to high 180's.

I'm also under 5' and want to drop my weight at least by 10%. I think my biggest issue is that I'm usually on the mobile app and it doesn't always have the demographics for the food I'm eating, which means more time to figure it out and I'm really short on time these days.

One thing I have started doing recently is that I make sure that I'm done eating by 9p.m. and have a glass of water with 2 caps of ACV and it seems to be lowering my FBS (I've just done it twice and both times it's been the lowest it has been in a while).

Hi, I'm restarting this challenge. Got way off track over the summer and need to refocus and get back to planning meals and add excercise into my life. My goal for this 8-week challenge is to lose 10% of my weight and develop lasting healthy habits onto which l can continue to build, for a permanent lifestyle change.

I rejoined this team, hoping to further progress with my weight loss. I weighed 280 lbs 10 years ago and was diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes. I have lost 100 lbs since then and my HbA1c is 6.9 right now.

- I want to make exercise a daily habit, do it every evening before bed.
- I want to put my appetite under control. I will keep my daily calories around 1600.
- Since I want to make it a transformation in my life that will continue for the rest of my life on this planet, I am going to give changes a little by little, but continually, to make it sustainable for the rest of my life.

Hi everyone! I'm having to restart the challenge because I just can't stay on the wagon! I eat out a lot and no I don't make healthy choices when I eat out. I just have to stop. I know it's a habit and a convenience. I'm going to try my best to overcome this terrible habit and make new healthier habits. My goal is too lose enough weight, eat right, and exercise to get off my medications. I know I can do it just have to get my head in the game. Good luck to all meeting your goals!

I lost 10 lbs from April thru July 2016. I also gained it back as soon as the weather heated up and I stopped walking outside. My goal is to recommit to exercises as well as learn new ones for indoors. At this point I would like to lose my 10 lbs AGAIN, and then commit to further weight loss. I understand portion control, I also understand how to eat, my issue is going back to larger portions, eating out of boredom and recommit to a diabetic type of eating. I need to obtain SELF CONTROL. I already belong to TOPS (Take off pounds sensibly) and just finished a year of prediabetic meetings, love them both! Both are very supportive, but I am 66 and need to get it right! Thanks You.

Hope to stay with focus on healthy foods, and steer away from night time eating.

Hi all. I was doing very well with my program, until I had a stroke on 6/5. Since then my blood sugars have been all over the board, and way too high. I saw the Dr. on Thursday. He doesn't want to change my medication ( Metformin) until he sees a week of readings - he recommended trying a protein snack before bed, and that is helping.

I joined this team, because I was getting too "comfortable" and parts of my program were starting to slide!

Week 1-
Goals
- To exercise at least 1/2 hour each day. Strength training three days a week. Water Aerobics on Wed, and Fridays.
- To continue tracking and staying within Nutritional guidelines- If you Bite It Write It ( I can definitely improve on this one)
- Stay hydrated, drinking at least 4-22oz glasses of water in addition to unsweetened green tea , and not more than 2 cups of coffee.
- To continue abstinence from smoking

I have recently been diagnosed as pre-diabetic (FBS 113). Literally EVERYONE in my family has diabetes, so I am going to make the most of this opportunity to improve my health and change the family tree.

My goals are to:
- stay within a healthy limit of carbs daily
- increase my exercise routine
- better manage my addiction to sweets

Here's to a healthier future!

I had forgotten I had started this challenge back in June. It sort of disappeared from my agenda. Well, anyway, life is busy at my house. My thoughts about this challenge: I believe alternating cardio and strength training every other day for twenty minutes every day will benefit me. I am prediabetic and I would really love to lose that label. Also, tracking what I eat for a whole day at a time, three days a week, should keep me accountable also. Getting seven hours of sleep each night and having two rest days each week. These goals will hopefully get me with a lower A1C and a lighter weight.

Hi, I am a type 2 diabetic and my goals are..
1. to build strength mentally and physically
2. exercise daily and walking at least 3000 steps per day (per doctor request)
3. Learn to eat right and tracking what I do eat
4. lose weight and taking better care of myself
5. to one day be off of all diabetic medication

Diabetes runs in my family and no one has ever done anything to help lower there A1C other then medication. I want to be the one that does something about it and not just sit there. I want to be able to get my sister involved so she to can learn that she can control this to the point of not needing medication any longer.

I recently discovered that I am pre-diabetic. The doctor says I'm doing all the right things to control this, but I want to learn all I can & apply it to my lifestyle in order to prevent it from advancing to full blown diabetes.

My goal is to maintain the healthy habits that I've developed & to include more healthy habits. One of the first things I an doing is learning about carbs.

My main goal is to reacquaint myself with the correct portions for each meal (number of carb servings, protein, etc.) and to develop a meal plan that fits those portions.
In addition l want to start excercising, which will help me lose weight and improve my body's use of insulin.

I finallt found something to help with my glucose numbers. In turn my weight loss and gain stopped. I am 5 foot 7 155lbs and my dr. wants me to be a bit lower. They would prefer 125 but since I am no spring chicken and have a few injuries the goal is 140. I don't care if I don't get "smaller" but at a flabby size 10 and 12, I need a little help.

My goal is to continue tracking my glucose daily. I still have weight to lose, so I'm trying to plan meals to help with weight loss and steadying my glucose numbers.

I also work nights and I can not walk outside either. I have some light dumbbells here that I use to get some strength training in. You could bring a resistance band with you if dumbbells are out of the question. Also, how about some chair exercises. Or just stretching. Moving around for five minutes every hour gets some exercise in.
Good luck!

Hi! I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes about 6 weeks ago. I have been tracking my food and exercise, but my glucose numbers are all over the place. So, my goals for this week are:

1. To continue tracking my food and exercise every day;
2. To exercise every day;
3. To get my glucose number more consistent.

Right now I am checking my blood sugar about 4 times a day.

Here we go!!!

Since I am making several changes to my life this week, this challenge fits right in with what I am doing.

1) back on my isagenix 90 day challenge... lost 30 pounds last year... want to loose the next 30 now.

2) starting a new flexibility program I found on line this week. This should help me with my quest for my black belt in TaeKwanDo...scheduled to get it next spring.

3) also starting the "life changing magic of tidying up" from the book by that name. Very intriguing. This may take some time.

Looking forward to making progress on all levels.


Thanks for being there, Mary
