I have been struggling with my weight for years, but never ever believed in fad diets. I am not a Yo Yo dieter, but my wieght has been climbing gradually over the years. I am now 5 pounds less than when I was full term with one of my daughters!! I am an emotional junk-food binger, and sometimes I can keep it in check but it has been harder the last few months. I am so at risk for diabeties, unless I change my bad habits!! I apreciate this site which is very encouraging to me, with the small goals it presents. I feel like there is a possibility I can actually achieve my goals! 3/22/12 Showing signs of pre-diabetes. Fasting Bood sugar today was 116. Too high...I changed my SparkDiet over to the Pre-Diabetes setting. 5/24/12 Fasting glucose is down to 104, and I have lost 27 pounds! (Lately my eating has been terrible, but I am trying to work my way back to healthier haibts!) I haven''''t given up! Oh and I got my itunes reward, but I haven''''t bought an outfit yet! 2013-lost about 20 pounds. 2015 August...weigh in is embarrassing. 250lbs. Why would I want to post this in public? Is it just for accountability? This is depressing. It feels as if I slid down the rabbit hole and got stuck in Alice''s wonderland! I''m on the verge of fall semester for college which involves a lot of sitting at a computer. What am i gonna do? I don''t have time to journal everything I eat.

My Goals:
My goals are to have healthier habits so that hopefully, Diabeties won't catch up to me, like it has with too many of my family members. My healthy habits will include daily excercise, and a lower level of carbs in my diet, along with a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables. I also want to be more aware of what I am eating, and stop binging on sweets.
To get my weight will mean a lot to me. My quality of life, being able to take on more house cleaning jobs without my back and kness hurting, being more acitve with my kids, and being healthy for them so I will be there for them a long time.

My Program:
My program includes tracking my water drinking, along with tracking my foods so that I am more aware of what I am putting into my body. I also includes having a goal of excercising 10 mins or more everyday, and to make it a long streak!

Personal Information:
I am a California girl, born and raised. I have three beautiful kids. I love music, and reading, Nancy Drew games, and spending time with my family. Just for future refference, don't worry about sending me any holiday goodies, because I just don't celebrate any holidays. It's a personal choice I have made.

Other Information:
I love the book Jane Eyre. I also love to read the Bible. My favorite book of the Bible is Proverbs. One verse that is my favorite, is at Proverbs 25:11 "As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it". If you can say something good to somebody, don't hesitate to say it! I learned early on in life how to be tactful and aware of a persons feelings. Knowing when to speak and when to be quiet can be a challenge! Encouragement, the art of listening, and empathy are also a big part of it.

    The "bubble" sticker on the scale I decorated was a blank one and I hand wrote the quote. You can get them in the Photo crafting section of most art/hobby stores!

    I went a few hundred over my calories yesterday and Sunday and I've done it quite a few times more than that. So, even though at one point, I lost 50 pounds, I'm back up 5 pounds, but the important thing is that I have to look at this long term. It is harder to lose weight than to gain it back, which I hate, but if it does happen, I just readjust and work at it again, then I've noticed I still lose weight. I'm surprised that with not exercising for 2 weeks and eating bad almost every day I only gained 5 pounds, but it is still a lot. On my weight loss chart, it shows I have steadily been losing 10 pounds every 2 months. So, I've learned to look at the big picture. You might want to think about making a weight loss chart. I wrote down numbers in increments of 5 pounds, 217--212--207--202--197...etc, then I put stickers above the numbers once I got to that weight. I have 7 stickers on it right now, so when I gained five, I only went back one sticker. So, in perspective, I haven't gotten too much off track, so it is encouraging me to try again. Maybe you can do that, just write whatever number was your highest weight, even if it was a few years ago, it will help.

    I quit my second job tonight. emoticon
    My boss will find out tomorrow. He wanted me to work Sundays, and he knew I didn't want to, so he gave me no choice. I think I'll start recovering sooner now. I realize now how much my other job really does a great job taking care of me.

    You do a really great job taking care of me too. Thanks Auss. I didn't know probiotics helps. I have taken some the last couple of days, along with vitamin C and other vitamins, and I drank some lemon and mint tea with dinner tonight. I love you and miss you. Thank you for checking in on me my sis. emoticon

    Thanks for the goodie Auss. I'm still coughin up stuff and boogery.... so I decided it was probably still contagious. I miss the meetings! At least I am able to exercise still, even though I don't have much energy. It makes me feel better. I will be there Tuesday. Thanks for checking on me. emoticon
