Hi everyone - just checking in -- this is my last day for week 1 of the challenge. Stayed the course and met all of my goals for the week. I must say, I'm feeling pretty good. For this week, I tried something new. I spent Saturday looking for great recipe ideas to cover my meals/snacks for the week then went to the store and bought everything I needed, then spent Sunday cooking everything up and portioning it out by meal for the entire week. I have found that to be very helpful this week with no guess work to try to figure out what to eat. I think this is a new habit that I need to keep!

I have actually lost 4 pounds! Unbelievable! Adding more protein did the trick, I must say. I did stray a bit yesterday at a friends house we had angel food cake with sugar free strawberry cream. That was not too bad.

ICANINSIGHT -- I, like you, am working on eating complex carbs and fruits/veggies only. So far, it is working well. I don't feel bloated like I used to! Stay the course!

Hi all...its week 1 again and hopefully everything will stay in place. I am controlling my diabetes through diet and exercise, no meds or shots! Really glad about that. I need to go and get my eyes tested but everything else seems good. Looking forward to gaining more information from this site, about diabetes, knowledge is power.

Forgot to check in yesterday... here are my weight stats for Day 3 and Day 4: (I do not check bs)

Wed 4-29-15 down .6 pound
Thur 4-30-15 down .2 pound (this is a stabilization for The Plan, not good)

I am weighing daily only because of The Plan. Ignore this for others.

Still trying to find a balance for carbs/proteins/fats between the two plans.

Week 1 - Day 2 Check-in. Got one strength training workout done, and walked for 20 minutes. I am down in weight today, and feeling good about it all. I just might be able to work these two plans together. (Prediabetic and The Plan).

Checking in - I have been within my nutritional ranges for the last three days. I'm having some trouble getting protein in, and oddly enough, fat. I always though fats were always the ones that I was going over on.

I set my non-weight goals quite some time ago - 2011 - and they've stayed the same, but right now, I want to focus on losing 10% of my body weight in the next 6 months (24 pounds)

Its been good to be on this challenge. I have managed to exercise everyday since I started on Wednesday except for Friday. (made that my day off). Today I had a good workout on my bike with some serious high intensity intervals in there. Blood sugar is 7.3 and blood pressure was 110/76. Now the waist line needs to go down. :) fight on people...we are worth it! So are our families. :)

I love sweet tea also, but gave up the real stuff. I live outside Portland, Oregon and we have a brand that's local that makes sugarfree blueberry tea and sugarfree sweet tea. That stuff is so good I can't buy it often because I'll drink a half gallon in 2 hours.

I was reading somewhere about trying heavy whipping cream and splenda, so that's what I'm going for this weekend.

Have a lovely weekend. My goal is to log in each day as I usually disappear from SP on the weekends. Staying connected is so important.

I totally understand not wanting to give up coffee!!!
My "can't give up" is southern sweet tea!! I know it would be best for me to give it up, but I see it as one of God's blessings while living on this earth!
But today, I did find some "sweet tea" mio type water additive. I plan to at least try it!! I don't do chemicals much, but it may help!!

Also, have you tried enjoying your creamer with some type of fiber to help mediate the blood sugar spike? Sometimes, just combining foods can make a difference in how our body handles carbs.

Keep pressing on!!

Thanks! I've had to balance work, stress and activity, and those five minute walks help. I just discovered today that my coffee creamer that has 1 carb makes my blood sugar jump. I'm going to do more testing this weekend.

Brenda,
Great plan on the 5 minute walks!!
I just read on Leslie Sansone's page that she classifies 5 minutes of walking as 500 steps!!

Step On, Friend!!

Hi Everyone,

Week One, Day One

So far, so good! I got my exercise in and my food has been on plan. I woke up with a high BS (178), but was down to 114 this afternoon. I really want to get control of it

Tonight I'll get a bit more walking in and we'll see what tomorrow brings. I work in a fairly stressful sales office, but I've put together a little routine and informed everyone about it. I take very small breaks during the day and walk. Three sets of five minutes. It brings my blood sugar down if its high and it helps my stress level. Then I do something more later, but those little five minute walks are precious to me.

Everyone have a lovely evening!

Today is the last day of Week 1 for me, I hope. I finished all the action steps on the 4th day & really wanted to get started in week 2. I was never told if or how I could do that, so I kind of just stayed away from this team (inadvertently). I was busy contributing to other teams I'm on.

I am really looking forward to Week 2.

I still don't have my eating under control. I was out of control for many months & it has been a challenge to "reign" my appetite back in!
I am doing much better on the fitness end of things. I know that won't be enough to make a long term difference. But right now, if I could just see the scale move SLOWLY in the down direction, I think I would be thrilled!!

Off to continue my 10 minutes a day movement!!
