Tomorrow my daughter is hosting a family brunch. I talked to her about what I can and cannot eat and we have worked it all out. I can now just enjoy my kids and grandson without the stress of what I eat.

It is a program called "30/10 Weight Loss for Life". I am not sure if it exists outside Puget Sound. I am individually monitored and each week I am weighed. They also check fat percentage, water content, muscle, amount and visceral fat. The definition of optimum weight is when the other measurements are in range. It is expensive, so I will probably only be able to do eight weeks, but I can always go back and finish later. The eight weeks will be a very good start.

I had a weigh-in today and I lost 6 pounds. This morning my FBS was 89. I can't remember when I had that, even before I crossed the line into diabetes.
I am on a restrictive weight loss program. They supply about 85% of my food. It is balanced to meet the high protein, low carb balance they want. The food is not bad. I supply two cups of veggies for lunch and a protein (preferably from a dead animal) and 2 cups of veggies. Tonight I am going to try the egg cups referred to in the week 2 discussion.

JCC - I use to be insulin resistant also. What helped me out was my eating 3 meals a day and 1-3 snacks a day. The snacks are important to help keep you from over eating at the next meal AND it will help to keep your BS's from crashing or spiking. Make your meals smaller in order to allow you to have your snacks without going over the allowed calorie allowance set for you by your doctor and nutritionist. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day as well.

At the top of your Start Page you will see different sections. Go to the My Trackers section. In this section you will find two of your greatest tools to use. They are:

1) Nutrition Tracker - This tracker will let you know if you need to increase or decrease your calories, carbs, fats, and proteins.

2) Fitness Tracker - This will help to keep you accountable to yourself.''

The next tab is the ARTICLES & VIDEOS. This section is where your will find articles on diabetes as well as many other health articles that you might be concerned about or interested in. You will also find videos on different exercises, recipes, cooking etc etc. There is a lot of information in there to help you.

Learn all you can about diabetes - - what causes diabetes, how to treat diabetes, symptoms of diabetes - both hyper and hypo, and the complications from uncontrolled blood sugars.. The more you learn about all of this the easier it will be to help overcome a lot of this.

The next tab is the COMMUNITY Section. In this section you will find success stories, message boards, different teams etc Be sure to look this over and see what's in other areas of SparkPeople (SP).

Set some small goals for yourself - something that you know you will be able to succeed such as eating so many servings of "freggies" (fruits & vegetables) emoticon emoticon , drinking so many glass of water per day/week emoticon , or getting 7-9 hours of sleep emoticon a certain number of nights per week.

Try to use your Nutrition Tracker as much as possible. The more you can track what goes into your mouth whether good or bad choices, the better you will learn how to eat - what foods work for you and which ones don't.

Did you doctor give you a list of carbohydrates that you can or cannot have? If not, go to the top of this page. Next to where it says SPARKPEOPLE you will see a blank spot with the word Search after it. You could type in low carb diet or list of low carbs

Don't strive for perfection but instead make steps towards consistency. There will be days on this journey that you will think the scale has stopped working - - don't put too much stock in what that scale says - - it lies. When that time comes as it does to ALL of us from time to time, remember how far you've already come, how much looser your clothes are fitting, how much better you feel physically, how much more energy you have etc etc.

You are NOT alone on this new healthy lifestyle of your journey. We are all going through our own journey such as the one you are beginning. We are all here to help support and encourage each other because we all feel each and everyone of us is WORTH IT!!! YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!

I have gone through this program twice (once as a refresher) and it's surprising how much more you can learn. While on this program I have been able to get off my diabetes medications, have brought my cholesterol and triglyceride levels to well within the normal limits all while losing weight and many clothes sizes. Now, maybe not everyone will be able to get totally off their BS medications as fast as I did but they can help lower the amount of medications through learning how to eat, what works for you and what doesn't and getting in at least 10 minutes of exercise a day. If you feel 10 minutes at one time is too much for you then do two 5-minute exercises. All minutes and steps add up to weight loss and a healthier life style.

If you have any questions as you proceed into your Weekly Discussions, please let us know. There's always someone lurking around the site just waiting to help you. Also, feel free to read other members' posts as well as you might learn some things from their journey as well as them learning from yours.

Have fun and enjoy your journey.

My doctor and nutritionist have put me on a very restrictive diet, and I'm finding it hard to maintain. I'm currently 236 pounds and I am taking about 200 units of insulin a day. I'm extremely insulin resistant. They would like me to be within 1200-1300 calories per day, and no more than 30 carbs per meal. I'm finding this very tough, and it's frustrating me.

Anyone have any tips that might help me out?

Thanks!

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

I'm so excited, you guys! This morning my fasting blood sugar was 122. That's HUGE for me. Granted, I took my insulin last night with dinner, but even so I have been doing really well on the food plan and with working out. I've done some cardio every day and am following a strength training plan from bodybuilding.com. I'm sore all over, but I feel like I've DONE something. I've also dropped 6 pounds this week, which is helping keep the motivation high today when it's nasty weather and I really would rather sleep than anything.

Good luck this week!

LESLYE61 - Are you weighing and measuring your food? What about your fluids, are you getting enough non-calorie fluids? Remember to eat your 3 meals a day and DON'T forget your snacks (1-3 daily). Your snacks should include a protein and a carb. Your snacks are very important with someone with diabetes. The snacks will help to keep you from over eating at the next meal. They will also help to keep your blood sugar levels from spiking or crashing. Be sure to try to stay within your calorie count allowed .

If you are measuring and tracking everything that goes into your mouth, you could try going from the low end of your calories allowed for a few days and then go to the high end of the calories allowed. Sometimes our body needs to have us "shake" things up a bit.

You mentioned that your doctor said you weren't eating enough. If you aren't eating at least your minimum amount of calories allowed, your body will have a tendency to go into starvation mode and will hang on to all the calories it can just in case it might not get anymore food!! There really isn't any foods that we can't eat but we do need to use portion control.

For food, if you want a hamburger, use the very lean (90-93% fat). If you want to have some baked fries with it then have the hamburger pattie without the bun as your "baked" fries will be your bread and fat. A sweet potato is better for you than a white potato, but an occasional white potato is permissible but remember portion control. That's why makes this new "lifestyle journey" work so well. So many "d.i.e.t.s" make some foods forbidden. With SparkPeople there are no "forbidden" foods.

Under the Articles and Video section towards the top of your Spark Page, you will find recipes from SparkPeople as well as some recipes from other members. There are also teams on SparkPeople dealing with recipes etc.

Are you getting any exercise in? Most of my exercise has been from walking but I do put in some strength training as well. If 10 minutes of exercise seems like it's too much for now, you can also do two 5-minute sessions of exercise. All steps add up to weight loss.

Also, remember that sometimes we need to look back at how far we've already lost, how much looser our clothes are getting on us, how much more energy we have etc. We can't always measure our progress by the scale.

I hope this helps somewhat. If you need more help with anything or more clarification, by all means please let us know.

I was doing great with my plan for the day, but we just had our healthy snack and I am too full to think about dinner. Leslye61 - I often have had problems meeting the daily calorie intake - that's why I made such a good plan for today. Oh well tomorrow is a new day.

Thank you Judy and Angel. One of this weeks goals are to try to cook at home - we rarely eat out anymore. We used to go out to dinner every Friday - my husband truly enjoyed Fish Frys. For the past year we treat ourselves to fresh fish and other specialties that are way to expensive. Beside the amount of sodium and deep fried foods was uncontolable. Today was my first meal away from home. The guys were putting in ceiling fans so my neighbor and I went garage saling. We stopped a little bakery for sandwichs on home made breads. Very fresh and delicious. I couldn't finish mine and we totally could look at all the desserts in the case and I really didn't want one. That is great progress.

I've been bad about checking in on the Week 2 Discussion. emoticon

The good news is I have made some leaps and completed this weeks steps.

Cooking much more at home (eating a lot more fish over beef or pork), emoticon

exercising regime started, emoticon taking my herbs and generally doing

things better. It seems to be working, because when I started on 3/19/14

my blood sugar was 369 and tonight it was 191. Progress emoticon

but steady. emoticon

During week 1 - I checked in every day. This week I have run out of time everyday, but I am doing well and reading a lot of articles - trying to find just the right way for me. This isn't for just a little while - this is forever. I think I tried to fool myself before when I thought I had diabetes under control. Now I am just trying not to have diabetes control me. Tried two excercise videos - I think that they will give me the extra push I need. emoticon

TWEETYFIT - Good job on going through this challenge again. I've done that myself and chances are I will be doing it again as I always learn more each time I go through it!! Things change so often with diabetes education.

I think that a lot of times, people go through the challenge too fast the first time around. I'm sure I did the same.

Are you y any chance reading from a e-reader in the evening or even on the computer or even watching tv late in the day? The blue light in the background of each of those things can keep you awake. Before I go to bed, the tv goes off and I grab a regular book to read from before I go to bed. The fan also goes on to keep the air circulating. You might want to give it a try.

If you eat too many carbs throughout the day, you will have to pee more often. The idea of six small meals is a great help to me. I make sure that I have 1-3 snacks (protein + carb) a day. This keeps me from over eating at the next meal and also keeps my bs's more even and prevents the spikes and crashes. Be sure to eat those snacks - they are important.

I decided that "this time" (second time doing this challenge) that I would really get things in order before I progressed to the next week. I just feel like last year I rushed through this and although some habits stuck others didn't so that is why I am making sure that I don't have to keep doing this challenge over and over to "get" how to manage diabetes.

One real strong thought has come to my mind: I have felt that I didn't have to take some of this diabetes "talk" as seriously since I am "only" pre-diabetic but something that really strongly reminded me that I needed to is the fact that if I am not active (meaning cardio that day) my BS does go up and stays up almost the whole day. I also am not consistent about eating smaller meals. Part of the reason has to do with my sleep patterns. I have difficulty going to bed and staying asleep so I end up sleeping on and off, sometimes to 2 p.m. so I am not really hungry for breakfast. Not a problem if I have more carbs first thing because I haven't eaten in nearly 12 hours but by early evening, it seems like the hunger won't quit because if I haven't worked off those carbs in my blood stream they are just sitting there.

So, the goal that I have been setting for the past week is to push back both my bed time as well as awake time so I can get breakfast in and start breaking my meals in smaller ones. Also, I am going to have to figure out some different snack choices in the evening (I have the calories to do so) because eating carbs and just sitting watching t.v. only makes me hungrier and hungrier. Plus, I suspect that also might be contributing to my awakening every 2 hours to pee.

Great job everyone on figuring out what is working for you.

Week 2 Day 7: This is the last day of week 2 and things are going as planned. I am trying a recipe from sparkpeople - collard green wraps; still logging in my calorie intake, and getting my exercise in by doing a lot of heavy house cleaning emoticon

Well, Wk 2 is going way better than Wk 1 did! I'm keeping better track of what I'm eating & logging it in the Track Nutrition part of the site, tracking my blood sugars better & keeping a better schedule of my workout plan. So far, I've worked out at the gym yesterday & today! Today was great because my 17 year old son, Zach went with me & did his workout after we warmed up together! This was a very good day! emoticon

Weelk 2 Day 2: I am going to try a hummus recipe today. Tracking my calorie intake is a habit since I started doing that in January 2014. I recently added exercise to my plan and I am doing a lot of walking. emoticon

Starting week 2 -- in a pretty good place. I am actually struggling to eat all the calories.... and I think so many fruits and veggies are having an interesting effect on my stomach. Down 1.5 pounds in my first week - Go ME! emoticon

LSAVELA - It's alright to try something new - - good for you!!! It doesn't matter if it was out of your comfort zone - - the thing is YOU TRIED IT!!!! emoticon Don't forget to do your stretching before and after your exercise - - you will be less sore when you over do it. Tomorrow is another day - - better choices tomorrow.

Starting Week 3 tomorrow, Sunday.
Meanwhile I exercised 20 mins so far this afternoon and am on course with nutrition and tracking.
I do all of our meals at home or pack stuff if I have to be away from home. Exercise plan is to do it in the mornings. Today I didn't exercise until early afternoon, but I'm ready for the next stage!

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Went way over carbs and fats yesterday. Drank most of my water and did not exercise due to busy day and being sore from previous day's workout (tried something new and although I really enjoy it, it is out of my comfort zone). Today should be a better day!
