When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10lbs at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96 lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

    Republicans in Congress have signaled that they will continue to defend Trump even when caught engaged in the most indefensible acts, presumably because they know that time and demographics of the electorate are against them. They’ve made a deal with the devil to protect the most corrupt president in American history

    So…what if anything would prevent Trump from engaging in even more recklessly and openly criminal conduct over the next 12 months? Does Trump really need to shoot someone for the many who still support this criminal? This man is going to take away food from poor people AND CHILDREN. Trump is evil.

    Senate Republicans are sabotaging your health care coverage. They tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act and rip away protections from people with pre-existing conditions and have proposed gutting Social Security and Medicare, even threatening to do it "behind closed doors." And surely, Republicans will continue to try and take away the safety net programs that millions of Americans rely on.

    Senate Republicans passed massive tax cuts for the top 1% and big corporations at the expense of the middle class. They're more concerned with protecting their special interest donors than American families.

    How do you feel about Mitch McConnell saying that we now need to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to fix the 1 trillion per year deficit created by tax cuts?

    Senate Republicans are enabling Donald Trump's corruption, treating him as if he's above the law. They will never hold Donald Trump accountable!

    Senate Republicans are beholden to their wealthy donors and special interests, and it shows.

    Senate Republicans are refusing to take action on commonsense, bipartisan gun safety legislation. They never will!

    The Trump administration proposes a new rule that would take food stamps away from more than 3 million people.

    “Presidential” Orders From Our New Dictator...The Justice Department files a brief in a Supreme Court case arguing that transgender workers are not protected by a ban on workplace discrimination.

    Trump says Jews who vote for Democrats show “a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” The ONLY one disloyal to our nation is Trump.

    As Puerto Rico braces for a possible hit by Hurricane Dorian, Trump tweets, “Puerto Rico is one of the most corrupt places on earth” and “I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to Puerto Rico!”

    “Presidential” Orders From Our New Dictator...The EPA proposes rolling back curbs on methane emissions, a major contributor to climate change.

    Trump hiked tariffs on Chinese goods, from 10 to 15 percent.

    How do you feel about Mitch McConnell saying that we now need to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to fix the 1 trillion per year deficit created by tax cuts? I would really like to know.

    Trump calls himself “the chosen one,” threatens to release ISIS fighters in Germany and France. Yeah, chosen by the devil.

    Trump has done NOTHING to stop Russian interference in our elections. Absolutely NOTHING!!!!

    The orange emperor instructed HUD to illegally withheld roughly $10 billion in mitigation funds from Puerto Rico for 3 months, money that is meant to beef up its infrastructure in anticipation of future devastating storms.

    Congress appropriated 10.2 billion dollars of disaster aid to Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is still waiting. Where the money? In Trump's pocket?

    Trump is encouraging greater enforcement of laws criminalizing homelessness and banning the feeding homeless people.

    In March of this year EVIL Trump proposed to drastically cut housing benefits that help millions of low-income seniors, people with disabilities, families with children, veterans, and other vulnerable people afford their homes.

    Trump wanted to cut HUD by an astounding $9.6 billion imposing deep cuts to affordable housing and community development, as well as other essential programs that ensure basic living standards. He wants to push families deeper into poverty and increase homelessness and housing poverty. Trump is cruel and unconscionable!!!!

    Trump’s official in charge of Medicare and Medicaid, Seema Verma, came under fire after Politico reported that she submitted a $47,000 claim for reimbursement on the taxpayers’ dime for stolen, uninsured items items. She claimed her Ivanka jewelry was stolen.

    The president of the United States keeps hiring people who use taxpayer money like it's their own personal piggy bank .

    Who travels with that much in jewelry?

    Why are taxpayers being asked to cover her losses?

    My bet is that the rental car got broken into, but all the stuff she claimed was inside it and stolen was in fact made up in order to bilk more money out of the taxpayers.

    Verma NEEDS to resign because of the reported “gross misuse of public funds.
