I have noticed for a few years that my blood sugar is a little high in the mornings. This last month however I noticed it was a little higher than it was a few years ago. A few years ago I vowed to lose 10 lbs. I did this and it didn't "cure" this. I made me an appointment with a local free health service to get a diabetic screening done.

I went in on Monday and was told I am Pre-Diabetic and need to lose a good bit of weight. I was told I need to make healthier food choices which I already do. I am not huge on sweets so have been at a loss over the years on what was causing my weight gain. I got to thinking it over and believe maybe it's my body going in starvation mode. I use to eat 6 small meals a day, but then got in the habit of not eating breakfast, lunch and had no snacks through the day. I wouldn't eat till dinner time. I got back in the habit of eating breakfast and lunch again losing weight down to 170 lbs in 2009. I fell out of the habit of eating breakfast and lunch again then gained all of my weight back.

So I am going the Slim Fast route... Not so much to use it to help me lose weight, but as a supplement for those days I don't feel like eating. I am hoping the 3-2-1 will help me get a healthy eating timeline kicked off each day. Once I start to lose down this month I am planning on switching to a High Protein Shake mix or to Carnation Instant Breakfast mixed with greek yogurt. With the diet plan I am using at the moment this still gives me lead room in my Calories so if I have a blood sugar drop during the day I can eat something outside of my snacks.

Now to just get myself motivated to move 5 days out of the week for 30 mins. :)
