My goal is to eat healthy and exercise. If I loose weight it is a plus. I have also followed the Diabetes program. I don't have any issues. However, my son has type two Diabetes. While he is already on his own I wanted to know what he has to follow and live with everyday. This is just a better way to understand what he is facing. It is also a better way for me to prepare healthier meals when he comes over. My husband is benefiting from the change to healthier eating and exercise as well. I told my son, he said he wasn't surprised I wanted to learn more. It gave him the opportunity to open up to his personal challenges. So, healthier diet, more exercise, more water and I know I will loose weight. My personal goal is to go the distance and not to give up after four months. I am on my way!

    Staying positive does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that you will be okay no matter how things turn out. Unknown
