Honestly, week 2 was bad. I made bad food choices that normally would have me quitting altogether. Luckily, I have gotten rather addicted to the gym so that was my one saving grace.

I'm picking myself up today, forgiving my own food sins and moving on. I had a good breakfast and a hard workout this morning and am now feeling motivated again.

I'm ready to move on to week 3 and kick my glucose in the butt!

Week 1 was a challenge because I thought I was already doing everything right. I had to fight such simple things. I really know how to make something easy so hard. lol. I haven't backed out on it yet. I am on week 2. emoticon I have to work on exercise. It's the only goal I didn't get through in week 1.

Don't know that I've making any forward progress this week but at least I'm not back peddling. Just have to keep at it, tweek some things and see what happens.

I got my exercise in for the last 2 weeks, but since the time changed, this morning I could not even get up....I have got to figure something else out. I have to be out of the door by a certain time and oh well....you get the idea...

Today may there be Peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of Faith in Yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received & pass on the Love that has been given to you.

I exercised daily last week for the first half of the week, and then found exercises to not exercise the next half of the week. I am recommitting to exercising again this week, as it helps my blood glucose. It makes me feel good too, as I am proactively doing something to help myself instead of just sitting around or being in denial.

Try harder--in everything that you do!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Oops I forgot we had to check in after 2 weeks. Umm what can I say, first week was very very hard, 2nd week getting better. Lost 6 pounds first week, amazing. Struggling with working out what to have all the time I must admit. But I am now in the 5th week and only just putting down my 2nd. Have lost a total of 16 pounds in that 4 weeks.

Keep up the great work!!! You can do this!!! That is wonderful that your employer is taking a pro-active stand in your health! I know that you know this but I control my sugar without medication by cutting our white foods except cauliflower! No white rice, quinoa, couscous, brown rice, no white bread and I love the food tracking here, it helps me reduce my sodium.

Also I have joined a water aerobics class 5 days a week and walk a mile 2 days a week. Hope to up that to 2 miles this week.

My goal is to get my A1C down to 6.0, loose 45 more pounds and come off my blood pressure medicine by Dec.

We can do this!! I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me!

This is my second week in the challenge also. I guess I'm not understanding what I'm suppose to be doing to be participating.

Week one was good...i'm motivated to keep moving forward into week 2 with a positive attitude. Work stress last week had me spiking all over the place. Working within the meal plan helped me smooth out the bumps and come out steadier that I would have in the past. Yesterday my fasting was 207. WAY WAY better than 270 and 307 when I started my first week. And I lost 1 lb.

I have a "biometric" appointment on March 15th for my company. In order for my employer to pay a certain amount of our health insurance premium, I must show progress to controlling my blood sugar, lowering BMI and have a good cholesterol screening. If I don't make these requirements, I have to sign an "agreement" that I will commit to better health. I am very motivated to have a good fasting glucose that morning. And a somewhat decent cholesterol screening.

My real test is with my doc at the end of March with the A1C and other blood work. I want to show to my doc that I have improved since my last A1C was 10.5.

I can do this!
