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.

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

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.

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.

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
