This is my first day of this 8-week challenge. I am not diabetic yet but I am pretty close and I can feel the effect of my weight on my health. My goal is to improve my habits for eating and being active so I can get my weight and blood sugar under control. I have 100+ lbs to lose and want to do so in the most healthy and effective way.

Hello,
I joined this challenge group because I have Metabolic Syndrome, whis is one step away from Type II Diabetes. I need to lose weight (about 25 lbs.) and follow a low-glycemic index diet. I thought this would be the best group for me. I also have neuropathy which is very painful and interferes with my ability to exercise. Chair exercises look promising but cardio is a real challenge for me.

My goal is to lose as much weight as I can before my surgery in January in 3 weeks. I want to stay on my food plan after surgery even though I will only be able to eat soft foods like ice cream, pudding or jello. I plan to get low carb or sugar free as much as possible.

My goal this week and throughout this challenge is to be consistent with the exercise and track my food. I do not know what a good level is for FBS. I am doing research and watching what I eat. I just can't lose weight and my doctor said with thyroid issues, depression and now type 2 diabetes it will be almost impossible.
I am going to concentrate on what I can do and improve my daily health habits.
Any encouragement would be welcome emoticon

Today I am dealing with the emotional side of being pre-diabetic. I have gone through all the emotions this week--anger, fear and hunger both emotionally and physically. This is part of dealing with the reality and going through all the stages of grief before I begin to accept my diagnosis and get on with my life. Trying to accept my new way of life--checking blood sugar 4 x time, walking an hour daily, keeping my carb count low and recording all this seems to be hard to swallow. I will get off the emotional roller coaster soon, I hope.

My goal is to find some form of movement that is right for me. I am currently inactive due to complications with muscle pain and weakness from Lupus but I am also struggling with weight gain from steroid use to control my flares, which has also caused me to have recently elevated bs levels.
Yoga and Palates have been suggested along with water aerobics. I have to be cautious not to over stain and cause additional pain... Gotta find my exercise "sweet spot"

I am renewing this challenge and I want to take full advantage of all of it. I want to bring my sugars down to a healthy level and lose some weight. I want to be able to stay active as I age. I don't want to be like the people I see my age or just a few years older who have a terrible time just to walk.This means taking the advice given here seriously.
