Today I weighed myself and found an 11.2 pound gain. I really thought I was doing better with my eating. I wasn't expecting huge losses but thought I'd at least be in a holding pattern. I know I've not been bingeing as of late and my blood sugars have been normal, so that is an accomplishment. My blood sugars for yesterday were 90 and 78 today. I have not been as active as I should be but have been having a lot of problems with my legs. I have been trying to push myself to do more housework around the house and I know it is exercise cause I can feel it in my muscles. I am going on vacation this week to PA to visit my family and was hoping to work on slowly building more exercise into my daily schedule. I have been at sparks for years and I am not getting anywhere. I know that is my fault but it is frustrating as I've made progress only to undo it and have to start over and over and over and over again. I'm not giving up as to do give up would mean diabetes would slowly kill me and that isn't happening. So now that the pity party is over I must get up and keep trying to do my best.

    The important part is that your sugar is under control. I am quite sure that you will find a plan that works for you. Don't give up! Just keep on trying! emoticon

    Well done Barbie for keeping picking yourself up and starting again. You have certainly got the right attitude to succeed.
    It is good that your blood sugar is normal and that you are not bingeing, that is a step forward.
    Just keep to your correct portions of food and do whatever exercise you are able to do and I am sure you will reach your goal. Housework is definitely good exercise!!!
    Have a great vacation and enjoy being with your family! emoticon Dorcas.
