Happy with my progress last week and yesterday. I'm doing well so far today, too. I find that exercising helps to keep me motivated to eat right, too, so it has double benefits!

Day 1 of Wk 2!! Missed most of yesterday with a migraine. Glad to say that since I have been moving more, I think their severity has lessened. Looking forward to a great week!

Good morning! I started Week 2 yesterday. I had a good week last week, despite the light headed feeling and sweats. I think it is just sugar withdrawals. lol. And my meds, which I've only started taking last Monday. I did lose 2 lbs last week, but seemed to have found them again. The last few days, it has been wicked humid here, and I think that is my problem. The biggest thing that I have noticed after only one week, was that for months, I've taken mid afternoon naps. (my DH called them crashes) For the last 4 or 5 days, I've been tired, but not tired enough to take a nap, but went to bed a bit too early. Yesterday, I didn't have a nap, and stayed up till 10:30, and didn't feel wiped out at all. It felt kind of nice, actually.

Have a great day!

SHOTOKIDO - So glad you are liking this. There is definitely a lot to learn on these challenges. The more you learn the better. I've already taken it twice myself and will be going for round 3 when I get back from out of state for medical reasons for my hubby. Each time, I am amazed at how much more I learn.

Did good my first week lost 1lb! I've added exercise in my daily routine and gradually getting back to eating healthy; cut my carbs down last week this week I plan to lose 2lbs, exercise 30min a day, get 20miles in for the week and increase my water intake and decrease my diet soda to 2 cans a day.

Cindy, NC

I have come to the realization that the scale is not my friend or foe...It is only the messenger!

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

KIPSTER - - Try eating at the top of your calorie range for a day or two and then cut back down to the lower end. Sometimes we just need to shake things up a bit.

Also, are your clothes fitting any looser? How about your energy? Is there any change there? Be sure you're drinking lots of non-calorie liquids to help flush out the toxins from your body. Sometimes it's the medications we are on that will also make us gain weight.

If I did not enjoy my morning walk I would have quit by now. I keep my calorie count between 1200 and 1500 I walk 4 to 6 miles a day, I do weights 3 times a week and the scale has not moved. I know one day I will get on the scale and there will be a major loss. I never had this much trouble losing weight in the past. I think it must be the diabetes. To bad I wasn't smart enough to keep the weight off the last time I lost it. Well as the saying goes, live and learn. You can bet when I get the weight off this time, It will not be coming back for an encore.
I can and I will lose the weight

I didn't wake up until my niece came in with her daughter. We had several thunderstorms during the night so I was still sleeping when she came. I will take my BS tonight before my snack. I didn't do very good at tracking last week. I am determined to do better this week. If I can't track on here I also make up a menu on an excel program to email to my Dr.

JANICE - I have heard of it before. It has to do with a natural overnight release of hormones which increase the insulin resistance. Diabetic people do not have the normal insulin responses to adjust for this.

At the top of the page there is a search bar where you can type in whatever you are looking for. Once you've typed it in, just hit search. It will bring up all kinds of things on there.

Judy - I think you hit it on the head when you said sleep. I have not been sleeping well and then the last two nights have had a good night's sleep and I am finally feeling better, still not 100%, but 90%. I woke up this morning to another good blood sugar under 100 and a 3 pound weight loss, so that helped my energy level also.
It was in the high 90s here yesterday. Today is starting out cooler.

goal is to be able to walk again

LINDA - Good blood sugar. You said you have no energy - are you eating at least your minimum amount of calories given to you by the dietician and/or doctor? What about your snacks? Are you getting those in besides your 3 meals a day? What about your water? Are you getting enough water intake? What about your sleep? Are you getting 7-8 hours of sleep in? All of these things can also make you feel extremely tired. If you are doing all these things and still have no energy, then by all means see your doctor.

Remember to take it just one step and one day at a time. There's no rush on these challenges as there really is a lot to learn. Let us know how things are going please.

JOAN - When all the emotional/stress stuff creeps up on you, go out for a walk (with your bottle of water) - it's a great stress reliever or even take a nice relaxing tub bath.

REMEMBER: You are never alone on this journey; we are here for you. YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!

Ameskie158 -Thank you. It is unusual for me to drag around this long. I do not feel sick, there is nothing wrong in my life. If it doesn't get better by the end of this week I am going to make a doctor's appointment. I can do what I need to do, I just don't want to.

goal is to be able to walk again

So hot out side today, turned on the AC and did a Cardio DVD from Weight Watchers.. I was pleasantly surprised it was easier than when I tried it 8 weeks ago. I am also happy my BG have been in the 80's and 90's each morning.

Live with courage, compassion and joy!

I did well last week, my blood sugar this morning was 99, a real triumph for me. But I have no energy. None, Zip, Zilch Nada. I am going to water aerobics tomorrow, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. But when I am home I am doing nothing. I wake up tired and I go to bed tired. I do not quite know what is going on.

DH and I walked with a group led by some of the Cardiology team (once a month venture)-we could go at our own speed but walked a bit faster than our usual pace. Beautiful day along the river with the sun shining but a little breeze to cool us.
Doing better with healthier meals.

JAN - Be sure to have a small snack (carb and protein) before you exercise to make sure that you BS can withstand your exercise. When you're done with your exercise be sure to recheck your BS every time and have another small snack. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after exercising. Keep up the good work!

I'm doing Cardio Rehab exercises at the hospital. Love the exercise but I'm trying to balance my food with it. They won't let you exercise if BG is below 100, then they have me test after exercise and it runs 75-85 and I have to take a high glucose snack so I'll be safe to drive home. Next week their schedule changes and I have more options and hope to do better balancing snacks/meals with the exercise.

Thanks for the advice. I will give it a shot. I lost a half a pound this week which really disappointed me but I will keep moving on to next week and continue to see how it goes.

CHARAY1 - Be sure to use your Nutrition Tracker. Be sure to eat your 3 meals a day AND 1-3 snacks a day. Drink plenty of non-calorie fluids also. You might find by eating smaller meals AND having a small snack 1-3 times a day might hold you over better. If you know that you get to eat again in 2-3 hours it seems to help you not eat so much at each meal. For your snack, try having 1/2 sandwich, cheese and crackers, cheese and fruit or something on that order. Be sure to drink your fluids however to keep the toxins going out of your system.

This is my first day of week 2. Week 1 was mixed. I will weigh tomorrow to see how I did. I am doing the required exercising (actually doing more) but the eating is a bit hard. I am going to continue on and also do as week two suggests which is to cook more at home because that is really the only way to truly keep track of all the breakdowns of the food.

Good luck to all who are forging on. Have a wonderful week.

Hello 2nd weekers. I've been tracking food and fitness faithfully everyday, and find it a great way to understand what I can or can't eat.
I have had to delay my exercise just for today because the tv is being used to watch the football by the male family members here, so I couldn't watch my video.
I'll go on the spin bike later, but I need to find a spanner thingy that will fit the saddle bolt as it's too painful to sit on it at the current angle, and I'd really like to ride the bike for more than just 5 minutes if possible.
Looking forward to this week with you all here.

Hi ppl in the second week. I have been on spark a while but I thought a diabetes related challenge would be a good idea. I've been tracking my food faithfully, and I don't use insulin so I keep track of how many carbs I consume to keep them at a healthy level for me. Unfortunately my bicicyle that I normally use for cardio going to and from work is broken right now... so until that is fixed I will have to find some videos to do.

Looking forward to when I can walk a mile in less than 20 minutes! Hopefully less back pain as I lose some of the extra weight! Did a couple cardio video workouts today to add to my walking plan...it's a start..

Good morning week 2ers! I usually get my workout at night after work but I already got it done this morning! Whoot! I got a new DVD to go with my Leslie Sansone one so that I can mix it up a bit. This is a Biggest Loser walking one and man oh man is it a good workout. It's still a mile but it's done is 16 minutes instead of 20. I'm really enjoying it though and would recommend it!

I had a reaction to the nutrition drink that I am trying last night. One more help lost. On a better note I was able to reach my goals of calories burnt and step count yesterday and went over so I am hoping I will eventually make up for those days that I didn't make goal.

I am not sure where I am with my weight as my scale is not working properly. I am getting more walking in but having trouble with stretching and some easy ST. It seems to trigger the fibro to go along with the OA in my back with the walking. I think I am doing well though. I am going to try another dietician next week and have warned them that I have Gastroparesis so they will not be expecting me to eat the normally recommended foods.
