Food Journaling

Keeping a daily food journal of all foods and drink eaten is essential so that I don't fool myself. I note where, when, with whom and what my feeling were when I ate. It has been invaluable to me to review this and see what the patterns are.

Educate yourself

Here are some books I recommend. Even if they aren't specific to your goals, they contain excellent information about what it takes to lose weight.

1. Weight Watchers' Coach Approach
2. Weight Watcher's "Weight Stages: Successfully Manage your Weight through Life's Ups and Downs"
3. Jillian Michaels' "Master your Metabolism"
4. Jillian Michaels' "Making the Cut"
5. Jillian Michaels' "Winning by Losing"

Knowledge

By finding out and learning as much as you can about weight loss in general, and nutrition and exercise specifically, you grow to understand the journey you are on and you understand the problems that arise and how to do something about them.

Don't wait until it hurts

Too many times I've decided to let proper care of my body go until a major symptom of something gone awry comes up. Reversible problems or not, simply educating one's self on a healthy lifestyle and implementing changes are going to make you a happier, healthier, stronger individual with less time spent at the doctors, in pain, or curing yourself, and more time feeling awesome. Don't wait till it hurts! Just take care of yourself now

Happy New Year!!

You CAN do whatever you set your mind to doing. The first step in this accomplishment is in knowing what it is that you need (or want) to accomplish. Set your goals--long term for the important , big items and then medium range and short term goals to create the steps that will get you there. emoticon

Free college classes

My local community college offers free credited classes to senior citizens, as long as a class is not filled. They don't even charge a registration fee. One can audit a class for no credit or opt to earn credit. As a bonus, one can get student discounts some places if you are enrolled & have an ID card. In my community, continuing education (non-credited) classes are not included in this free deal... (click title for more info)

Working through Denial

Knowing that you have diabetes is one thing, but accepting and working through the times of denial is another. It is very important that you talk with your physician as well as your dietitian and learn all about diabetes and how it will affect you.
