Kudos to you on stopping smoking. Many years ago, I used to work at a detox facility. The Director told me it is harder to kick cigarettes than heroin; so be proud of your accomplishment.

You are definitely on the road to better health and feeling great!

That's good you have quit smoking! You should feel better for making that decision. It has been about 35 years since I quit; so long ago I have forgotten all about it. emoticon

I told my friend she drew her eyebrows too high. She seemed surprised.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement, I found out today that I have received a membership at the Y according to my income. My plan is to start going there a few times a week getting in some water aerobics and strength training. And I do plan on getting a scale on Friday I think the first time I see the weight I’m at now will scare me half to death but it will be a great motivation to keep going. I’m so glad I found this place in this group you guys are awesome

Your experience with you glucose readings is what I have found. I joined to stabilize my glucose readings as the ups and downs were driving me batty. I have managed to keep my sugar in and around 130 sometimes less with my healthy eating. As a side effect I have lost 60 pounds since last April, 2017.

I wish you great success, keep on keeping on.

On my way to my new normal.

Welcome to the team. You have taken the first step and that is better than doing nothing. Congrats on stopping smoking. A little advice buy a digital scale its super accurate. Weigh first thing in the morning without clothes and shoes.

I'm 71 and have a few medical issues, Type II diabetes, stage II emphysema, High Blood Pressure and a few fusions in my spine. I recently quit smoking, 7 months ago, after smoking since I was teenager. That was my first goal, and it was probably the hardest thing I ever did.

My next goal is to lose wieght, i weigh over 200 pounds, not sure how much as I don't have a scale. 😃 I plan on getting one on the 3rd.

I`ve been here for 3 days, and with logging food and staying with healthy food choices and exercises. My blood sugar was at 238 when I started and today it was down to 189. I am so estatic with this program.

My target wieght is 150 pounds. I know I can do this.
