stuck in my 2nd plateau. At 148 after the holidays after a 3 pound gain the day after Thanksgiving. Time, once again, to prove it to myself!
Final weight goal of 140 pounds & maintain my fitness with excellent blood sugar management.
Continue tracking food, increasing my activity, making progress toward my new weight loss goal. Just hit my first major goal today --under 200 lbs. Getting my 3rd A1C test on Thursday and meeting with my dr. the following week. That will help me plan next steps. I'm under the diabetic range, but we'll see if I dropped that number further.

My goals for September are to lose another 2-3 lbs. My weight loss has been slow, so I am not going to force myself to achieve more weight loss than my body can handle. I am running a 10k September 22nd, so I hope to just be able to finish. I struggled with meeting my training goals last week. In addition, I will be back in school full time in September, so between school, husband, and son, I hope to maintain a exercising at least 5 times per week and eating foods appropriate for insulin resistance.
Will work on learning about insulin resistance,begin following food changes,continue exercising,and see what the end of September holds for me.
Six months from now I will be glad I took the time to workout.
Welcome and luck on your weight-loss journey.

I am newish to this forum.. and have known about my Type 2 Diabetes for 3 weeks nearly now.
So hope it's ok if I join in this thread and set some goals for September as I am stumbling and fumbling a little so far.
During the course of September, I would dearly like to:
* lose around 2-3 kgs in weight;
* drink at least 6 glasses of water per day;
* be active (of around 15-20 minutes) for at least 3-4 days per week;
* keep track of my food via SP every day this month.
OK, those will do for now!
Good luck to all others in the thread

The difference between a dream and a goal is a plan and a date.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find they haven't half the strength you think they have.
Starting weight is 234 but I would like the ending weight to be about 224,so ten pounds.
Goals other than weight loss would be to learn if I am truly insulin resistant, or just don't tolerate carbs well. Been testing my blood sugar for over a month and most all of my readings are normal. Only a couple of hypoglycemic readings. See me doctor soon and she will go over the readings with me. There is that, and to learn more about being a highly sensitive person, such as not being able to handle too much sensory input.
September starting weight: 175
September ending weight goal:165
I know that I can do it!
Well, my summer was a serious food-fest, not cool for weight. So, this September I'm starting at 165lbs and intend to drop 10 of them and get my 5K time below 30mins for the race I'm running in Disneyworld on Oct. 2nd! That means:
1) no extraneous junk food
2) exercise daily, run 3-4 times/week
3) weigh-in often! I just ignored Wii Fit for all of August, ack!
No day but today ...

My DS is now 3 months old, and I'm ready to get back on track. I got really lazy with my Insulin Resistance and used the pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted, regardless of how it would affect my insulin. So, here I am. Back at it... again.
Take Metformin 3x/day
GW: 140-130ish. We'll see when I get closer.
My September goal is finding balance in my life. August was an extremely personally stressful month and all I can say about it is I'm glad August is over, glad I'm still standing and glad my sugars are stable!!!
So I plan to achieve balance by:
1. Taking my 10 minute breaks each hour when I have something sedentary to do.
2. Taking 1/2 hr. of "ME" time every evening before I go to bed to --
just be alone with my thoughts
September starting weight: 171
September ending weight goal: 169
For me, my goals are to:
-Find & take advantage of more fitness time
-working on increasing fruit/veggie intake to 4 daily
-Focus on weekend water consumption ---need more

Well, my goals are:
- find out why I'm so darn tired (waiting for blood test results) and take care of it
- keep on with my exercises
- be as optimistic and positive as I can
Good luck everyone!

Sorry this post is late, had little to no internet capability while on vacation last week and this week has been booked solid with appointments and such, plus trying to play catch up. So my apologies!
Anyhow...a new month, a new set of short term goals for us to consider. The goals can be anything you are wanting to work on in the month. It does not have to be necessarily weightloss, just many of us are looking to do that. It can include eating right, exercising more, drinking more water, or whatever.
For myself, I would like to:
- Find more structure and balance with my eating.
- Drink more water.
- Have more time for exercise.
- Just have a better month. Weight loss would be nice, though just feeling better would be a plus too!
