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!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

Update: my cholesterol is now 181 and the HDL is 51...so I'm good and life is wonderful!

...yipee...will continue to watch carbs, starch and sodium and move every 20 minutes.

Update: 2017- I continue to educate myself and others with daily posts. I continue to log my foods, starch & cholesterol and watch the charts on Spark people. My A1C is a steady 5.5...maintaining my weight as well....yipee!

    Trump expects you to obey his law and no other laws matter. Trump could care less about Constitutional laws. Trump fully intends to "fundamentally transform" the United States of America and his rebellion against our country is disgusting to say the least. Goes without saying, He'd destroy the world for a dollar. Stupid tariffs, stupid tax cuts, destroying health care for the majority, the most racist president ever, kowtowing to Stalins mini-me in North Korea, pulling out of the climate change accord and more. The list goes on and on. It seems we are on a slow march to communism. Trump is a a menace to the stability of our laws and nation. The "Law and Order" President he calls himself believes rules and laws don't apply to him. We are on our way to a centralized government where like Putin, Trump makes all the rules for everyone else to follow. We are marching down a very dangerous path akin to Nazi German and with the same kind of oligarchs Putin surrounds himself with. It is hard to deny this....and if you do you are denying the very laws under which we live to protect ourselves and our families.
    Trump appeals to his supporters to hate immigrants and Democrats and lives his life spewing insults and fear-mongering with fascist underpinnings. Trump is power-obsessed and thinks of himself as an authoritarian. Our entire system of government and way of life is risk as Trump continues to harm our democracy. Trump is a traitor who has sold his soul for money.

    Trump's tariff's with affect large sections of our economy. Americans will continue to suffer and this is a dangerous assault on this country's economic prosperity. This move is likely to tank the U.S. (or global) economy. This is no longer America!
    It is not economic disruption, it is economic suicide for our nation. Tariff's on Mexico, China, Canada, and who is next? Chuck Grassley finally opened his mouth and said Trump's tariff's are an abuse of Presidential tariff power, but you have to realize Trump has abused all of presidential powers. He is a liar and a criminal. These countries are mad at America and might just stop all exports to the U.S. until the tariffs are no longer in affect. Wow, Trump may just be able to isolate America from most everyone. Watch Trump flush our country down his golden toilet!

    Trump spits in our faces and will destroy everything that was ever good and decent. Trump wants
    America to withdraw from the world and under his presidency, the open global economy might just slam shut
    Where in the constitution does it say that a president cant be indicted? It doesn't. He belongs behind bars. We all know Trump is a CRIMINAL and a LIAR! They say it is policy of the DOJ not to indict him, but that doesn't make it law. It is not the American people who have been winning but Wall Street, private prisons, the oil industry, and Trump’s own family. Trump is desperately attempting to sabotage the Mueller report. Trump raised housing payments for new home buyers, cut taxes on the wealthy, wants to take health care away from millions of people, enlisted a federal hiring freeze, a freeze in defense spending, eliminated community service jobs, slashed job training and safety enforcement, ignores disater relief for many, slashed funding for those with food insecurity and access to safe and affordable housing for many. He even put a gag order on Department of Agriculture, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Trump put a freeze on the Environmental Protection Agency's grants and contracts.
    He also allowed Chlorpyrifos a dangerous chemical to stay on the market which is found in fruits. He targeted the Great Lakes, the Gulf of Mexico, and Chesapeake Bay by cutting EPA programs to clean up the waters and rolled back important protections for drinking water in coal communities. Trump also moved to weaken air quality standards for ozone and also stopped rules that would limit dumping toxins from power plants. He denies scientific proof of climate change. Trump actually hates Americans and puts us at risk every day.
    You already know Trump is a criminal and don't seem to care this criminal is allowed to commit further crimes against his fellow human beings.
    Trump hides his tax returns and brought pay-to-play corruption to the presidency. He refusal to disclose details about his finances and ties to Russia or or other foreign powers. Those who dare to support McConnell or Trump will continue to watch this horror fall upon our country. When is the House and Senate going to pass a law returning the power of tariffs solely to Congress?

    Barr MUST RESIGN! Any Attorney General who lies to the American public is not fit to run the justice department. Barr's attempt to obstruct justice is appalling. The rule of law implies that every person is subject to the law, including people who are lawmakers, law enforcement officials, and judges and that includes BARR AND TRUMP. Barr is not a servant of the law, but a servant of Trump. BARR CLAIMED IT WAS NOT ILLEGAL FOR TRUMP TO ORDER HIS LAWYERS TO LIE FOR HIM. HERE IS AN AG CLAIMS THAT IS NOT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. BARR ALONE IS OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE.

    BARR TRASHED HIS OWN REPUTATION WITH HIS LIES. BARR SAID IF TRUMP THINKS AN INVESTIGATION IS UNFAIR, HE CAN END THE INVESTIGATION. WTF! THEN HE IS ALSO SAYING AMERICANS THAT ARE BEING INVESTIGATED CAN END ANY INVESTIGATION AGAINST THEM? PURE STUPIDITY.

    BARR HAS DISTINCTLY BREACHED HIS OATH TO PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTION AND OUR LAWS. BARR IS BOLD, BRAZEN, BILLIGERENT AND CONTEMPTIBLE. NOW HE IS AFRAID TO TESTIFY IN FRONT OF CONGRESS. WHAT IS AFRAID OF? HE IS AFRAID WE WILL ALL FIND OUT HE PERJURED HIMSELF?
    BARR'S ACTIONS ARE TYRANNOUS AND HIS VICIOUS MISUSE OF POWER OPENS THE DOOR TO AMERICA BECOMING A DICTATORSHIP AS HE TRIES TO SUPPRESS THE RULE OF LAW.

    MCCONNELL SAID "Think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that is going to pass."
    McConnell IS the Grim Reaper for our democracy, our country, our freedoms, and our planet. As he blocks legislation it is almost like McConnell is saying death to our country. He will stop progress at every turn. McConnell seems to want our country to stare death in the face so only the wealthy will survive.

    I agree with you, Where is the punishment for the male? This is a typical response for the Repubs. Blame it on somebody else, our Person in the White House is a leading example. emoticon
