Long range goals...
To be able to put my socks on without turning red in the face!
To find my collar bones (I know they are there somewhere!)
To be able to keep up with my dogs in agility course training.

Short term...
10 pounds over the next two months, in hopes of getting my blood sugar more stable.

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.

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

As a newly diagnosed diabetic I was told to try and lose 10 lbs so my first goal is to lose 10 lbs by getting my eating under control and doing more exercise. I have now tracked my food for 5 days and drank 8 glasses of water a day for 5 days and increased my walking though with a bad back this is getting hard to do. so I am doing the chair exercises in place of walking.

Hi Everyone,
I have been pre-diabetic for about a year now and have yet to really make the changes needed to kick this in the butt. My boyfriend was recently diagnosed as Type 2 Diabetic so now we are both working on our health.

My goals:
1. Work out at least 3 times a week and follow the workout videos for toning.
2. Track everything I eat. Every BLT (Bite, Lick, Taste) This should help me stay accountable

Good luck to everyone starting this journey as well!

My first goal is to learn some basic strength training so I can integrate it into my cardio routine.

Second, I am going to lower my blood sugar out of the pre-diabetic range.

Last, I am going to build habits so this is something I can do even after I meet my weight loss and blood sugar goals.

I was diagnosed a year ago. I have been in pretty big denial for the last year. I'm finally taking this seriously even though I should have forever ago. I'm trying not to hate myself for taking so long to get myself together.
Goal #1: Get my blood sugar within normal limits
Goal #2: Drop 80 pounds to get to my goal weight
Goal #3: Exercise 5 days a week
Goal #4: Eat more natural foods and less processed foods

Last year diagnosis with heart failure and copd and put on diuretic. This resulted in lab work being done every month and discovered glucose in the pre-diabetic range from 110 to 103. 6 months before the first lab test glucose was 90. In last two years I have switched to cooking own food to decrease gluten and sodium, decreased carb intake and started exercising (though not consistent due to breathing problems) but now this problem has appeared. None of my doctors seem concerned about my glucose number but I am as I can't take anything more going wrong so here I am.

Goal 1- Learn about meal planning, what to eat and not eat, tracking food what and how, etc. to bring down glucose level to normal.
Goal 2- be consistent with doing an effective exercise program.
Goal 3 - lose 5 lbs.
Goal 4 - track food consistently (which I hate since I have to do it one ingredient at a time).

Hey howdy--here are my basic goals for the next several weeks

1. diet and exercise to lose enough weight that I can call my doctor back in 8 weeks and give her a heads up on my weight loss and she won't have to prescribe me anything for my "borderline diabetes" (i am afraid of having to take meds--with my current job situation, no way i could afford medication)

2. after that initial "whew, relief" weight, keep the habits going to drop more pounds of useless fat and gain more energy and fit into my closet of professional-looking clothes again..

3. use less sugar on a daily basis--get to the point where I don't really want it and a small desire for some doesn't turn into a binge.

4. stop drinking coffee past noon, switch to herbal tea if i want a refreshing hot drink any other time of the day--and stick to it. it makes it too easy to have sugar all day long (and is my easiest addition of sugar in the day)

5. midpoint goal: I also just joined the 30 day vionic-inspired challenge. at the end of 30 days, if i've been doing well, i'm treating myself to a pair of those walking shoes. by "doing well," i of course mean subscribing to the steps in the challenges on that group AND this one. The benefit is less frivolous spending on meals out of the house if i want to afford 'em (boom, two shot!)

My goals are to:
1. Look myself in the mirror and start to like who I am once again
2. Get back into the habit of daily exercise
3. Get into the habit of measuring and tracking my food
4. Loose 10% of my body weight (approx 20 lbs) as my doctor thinks if I can do this then I can probably be taken off my diabetes medication.

I probably should have waited to Sunday or Monday to join; however, just being diagnosed as diabetic on 4/6/16, two days after my 65th birthday, I'm anxious to learn more about diabetes, what I can/cannot eat, how to lose weight, etc. I was not put on insulin or pills, but I'm scheduled to meet with a dietitian. So main goal is to lose weight and get off this prednisone that didn't help my weight at all. Gained 14 pounds since November 17, 2015 (practically in 5 months).

Hello, all!

I posted my goals on 3/8, about getting past the flu so I could focus on my diabetes. Well, it has been a real battle! But with a new doctor I'm finally seeing improvement. So my new goal is to continue to get healthier past the flu, and start some real exercise. I did some callisthenics a day or two ago, and I want to keep that up on as close to a daily basis as possible.

I am actually pre-diabetic. My overall goal is to lose around 37 pounds and at least half that in the first 8 weeks. I also am learning a lot on watching the carbs and the value of exercise.

I noticed a number of people starting or re-starting this challenge, so I'm doing it again, too. Right now my goal is to get past the flu, continue to eat better, and once I'm healthy start back into exercise.

So since I only lost .7 oz for the week than I guess it is time for me to ask for some help :(, as far as my sugar count it was 90 at 9:00pm, so I thought I would eat something so that it does not drop anymore then that. I work nights so i am also trying to figure out what I can do for exercise. I have a stately job and I do not like walking outside in the area i work in so walking at night here is not a suggestion ??? Help any suggestions on what I can do in the office?? emoticon

My goals are:
1. To find out how many carbs a woman should eat per meal. I have Type 2 and on medicine but my doctor does not believe in counting numbers, he just feels I should eat healthier carbs and portion control. I believe I should know how many carbs I should have. I understand on how to count carbs, I just need to find out how many I should have.
2, Work out 5 times a week to start 30 minutes each.
3. Track at least 5 days of my meals.

My goal is to get control of my eating and not give in to impulse purchases that are not good for me. I did buy a lot of veggies this week. Now I just have to prepare and eat them and not let them languish in the fridge to ultimately end up in the compost bins.

Don't give up what you want MOST for what you want NOW.

Apparently I've lost my mind; looks like I signed up for this Challenge, but it didn't show up on my Start Page. I am ready to roll!
My goal is to lose 25+ lbs and get my sugars back to where they were last August - an A1c of 5!
I need to cut my carbs more than my cals because I've developed a sensitivity to carbs. Huu-Rah! (Don't know if that's the correct spelling, but that's how it sounds in my head. 8-)

My long term weight loss goal is to lose 130 pounds.

In the meanwhile I'm going to:
eat within my carb range for meals and snacks
Workout at least 5 times a week
Incorporate strength training into my workouts
journal everything I eat
remember to take my fasting glucose every morning
