Take one day at a time. One pound at a time.

And the more I learn the less I know.

Hi and welcome to the team.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

Welcome to the team!!! Good cooking at home is soooooooooo much better and tastier than eating out. I love to cook and try many of the different recipes on here. So far, everything I have tried has been delicious. Good luck to you for taking the first of many small steps toward your goals.

I've had diabetes for 17 years, I've been blessed in not having terrible health effects from high glucose. I've been gambling with my health and my life. My last A1C was 7.9 and I figure it's time I grow up, put on my 'big girl' panties and start taking care of myself.
I have a wonderful husband who I've been married to for 43 years. I don't know how he's put up with me! LOL
I have three children and 9 grandchildren ages from 17 years to two weeks old.
I love to cook and know I can make some really tasty healthy food and now am giving myself pep talks to do it every meal.
