I'm going to try to remember to check in daily. When we are camping at a campground without internet, I won't be able to do that. We camp a lot in the summer and we do a lot of walking. We camp with two small dogs.

My goal for this challenge is to checkin daily -
Am beginning by journaling and by tracking my nutrition and fitness every day.
Also, need to wear my pedometer more consistently and to track my steps daily.

Have been so inspired by my Daughter who has lost 30 pounds and is doing fantastic - like a new person. Gotta love that Gal!!

Hi everyone. I will re-start tomorrow, Aug. 1st. I am ready to get serious about my diabetes now that I have finally accepted my diagnosis of Type 2 on June 5. I am eating more fruits and veggies and am tracking my food once again. I have worked out a work out plan with my Curves Coach. I have made a walking time schedule for my Treadmill walking at home. I'll be at 30 minutes a day by Sept 14, my 67th b-day. I can do this! emoticon

Had to skip exercise yesterday as I had some stomach problems.
Woke up today feeling better and motivated.
By 10 AM I was on treadmill getting the 10 minutes I have committed to this week.
Used the program on treadmill that varies speed and incline but raised the levels manually.
Will try to get some strength training in the afternoon.

Just because your numbers are normal, doesn't mean your not pre diabetic. There is a test for that, I know because what you are experiencing happened to me.The doctor did the pre diabetic test and I flunked considerably

Hi Primrose.......not all people who are over weight have diabetes because your pancreas is still make enough insulin to process glucose.....doesn't mean that you won't have diabetes in the future. If your start now doing exercise and healthy diet and get to a healthy weight. You may never have diabetes. Good luck emoticon

Weeks 1 and 2 went by in a blur and i think my mind is fuzzy in part due to the type 2 DM that i fell i have.

But when i used the gluco-meter, i was always in normal-ish limits. HOW can a 240+ lb woman not have DM II ?

Have to retrack and review Challenge steps over and over again.

I do want to complete this challenge on time.

Really really wanted to emotionally eat today. I was lectured (nicely) by the othopedist that my knees are taking a beating due to my weight. On the way home I wanted to stop at McD's for a burger... for Sonic for a slush & so many other places on the way home. I made it home without stopping, and immediately got a glass of sugar free tea! But even so, i have been emotionally binging ... and it needs to be cut (then stopped!)

Just checking in on day 2. Could've done better with the food today, but did get little walking in this morning. The heat has been unbearable to me, so I really need to get my recumbent bike dusted off and batteries in so I can exercise inside. emoticon

Good morning Shwfit. I found this challenge very helpful to keep me on track. If your interested on having a ticker at bottom of your post this is a tool I also found helpful. Go to start page under the word welcome select account. Next select community. Next select signature & ticker. Ok, if I done this right design your personal ticker with what you want to track. And lastly for me logging every day helps me. Good luck on your lifetime journey. emoticon

I signed up for the challenge a couple of weeks ago for information.

TODAY: TUESDAY, JULY 21ST. I OFFICIALLY START. I went to my fitness center at work (yes.. I am lucky.. but unfortunately was too busy to take advantage, but now that has changed). My AC1 is 8.9 and I am 75 lbs overweight!! We put together a plan that will help me reach my goal by the early Spring. I have to do this and I need encouragement, which is why I am joining.

I want us all to know that we can achieve our goals!!

emoticon I finally was able to restart this challenge. My goals are to reach my goal weight by my next birthday (4/1); to get my A1c down to 6.7 by December 2015; and to begin an exercise program. I need to understand in my heart of hearts that these changes must be lifelong, not just till the weight is off.

Good start yesterday.
Did the minimum suggested time on treadmill (10 mins). Used a program that varies speed and incline.
Then I did 15 minutes of strength training.
The best part is that it was pain free.

I am back for what is, at least, the fifth or sixth time. However there is a major difference this time. I am pain free thanks to three cortisone shots into my spine. I will now be able to follow an exercise program which, due to pain, was pretty hit and miss.
One of the reasons decided to restart is that the spinal surgeon told me that the shots would spike my glucose levels upwards for a time. I decided that would be a better starting point to work on getting my FBS down. Today 246.
I feel like this is really my first time here.

Thank you LYVON17. I really needed your comment yesterday! It helped me not to panic and think "all is lost" emoticon emoticon

This is my last day of week 1 and it has started great. Just finished my beginner's kettle bell workout, had a healthy breakfast and have drank 16 oz of water so far! Yesterday was hard but I'm grateful I made the choice to get back up today and start again! emoticon

Week 1 Day 3
Keeping up with daily goals: eat breakfast, drink a minimum of 64 oz of water, exercise for at least 20 minutes and check my numbers.

Weighed today and gained a pound but I blew it off and picked up my hand weights and did my workout anyway! I will not allow the scale to derail my efforts. I know I am moving in the right direction!

Have a great day everyone!! emoticon

Finally made something for breakfast before going to work ( work over night) which I think helped take the edge off. I did get a bit hungry, but I think I felt like this because I usually go right to the candy box stashed in the back right after I get done working freight. I drank water instead of eating!

Wow. Looked at my nutrition tracker yesterday. Had no idea I was eating so much fat! Not good for those of us with glucose problems. Need to get that under control! Good thing I found out about that bad habit early on.

Made a good start 41 minutes of exercise. I always start off with a bang. It's always like that. The question is can I keep it up.......I don't plan to track my food this time. I wonder if that sets me up for failure. emoticon

Day One. I spent 18 months losing 40 pounds and have now been stuck for 4 months. Just had surgery on my stomach so not exercising. Just signed up for this challenge but can't find any instructions, just discussion boards. What do I do? Thanks.
