2 fruits or veggies is not enough

2-3 fruit servings a day is recommended
and I eat 5 cups of veggies every day (the low glycemic ones, not the corn, peas, potatoes, kidney beans,)

Nuts and seeds also balance out the fruit servings if taken together or close together.

I live in the EST, posted for need of challenge leaders.

Ohio is the state I was born in, raised in, and lived in all my life!

Enjoy Life to the Fullest!

I will get under 200 lbs!

Those are easy and "do-able" goals. I know you will be successful! Is two of fruit and veggie enough?

Here where I live there is a Wellness Center that is associated with the hospital and I can go there and they will give me a new glucose tester with the needle thingy and usually some start up test strips. They also have a great diabetes support group that meets once a month and there is no cost. You might see if you have something like that or send me a private message with you address and I can sent you one and probably some needles to go along with it if you are interested.

I have been reading The Spark book so I decided to set small goals for week 1 only. I know that I try to do too much too fast and when I can't I quit. This week: 1. Get a new cover for my blood sugar needle thingy so I can monitor my fbs. 2. Eat at least 2 fruits or veggies each day this week. 3. Stretch for 10 minutes each day. 4. Check in to this page every day this week for motivation.
