When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10lbs at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96 lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

Update: my cholesterol is now 181 and the HDL is I'm good and life is wonderful!

...yipee...will continue to watch carbs, starch and sodium and move every 20 minutes.

Update: 2017- I continue to educate myself and others with daily posts. I continue to log my foods, starch & cholesterol and watch the charts on Spark people. My A1C is a steady 5.5...maintaining my weight as well....yipee!

2019 My A1C s now 5.4

    CONGRATS on being today's SPARK PEOPLE Motivator!!

    In case you've not seen it, as you go to your page and BEFORE you hit the "Edit/View" blue button look below that line,,,it's right there.

    If you go to my page, you'll see a similar picture of the sun, it has words because it's a badge I've earned on the 5% Challenge from the AWESOME A team for exercising 5 or more days (I did 7) days in week 2. It has to be at least 30 mins a day. I LOVE the pic!

    How much is your life worth? In Trump's mind, you are worth nothing!

    Trump wants to block new funding to help states with testing and contact tracing in the upcoming coronavirus relief bill and reject any new aid bill if it doesn't include a payroll tax cut. How does that help control the virus?

    In six months, Trump still hasn’t learned the very basics about Covid-19. It must be very obvious to everyone the moron in charge has abdicated his responsibility and his only concern is how he is going to cover his ass. Donnie's not interested in saving lives or how the pandemic will impact on citizens for years to come.

    More than 10,000 new cases in Florida & Texas on Saturday.

    Seems the deaths of human beings had been made into Trump's personal entertainment and national sport....lots of cases, lots of hospitalizations, lots of deaths.


    Trump is out there doing whining about faucets that don't have enough water pressure. Windows, beans, and now dishwashers? Seriously? He's always so painful to watch...and desperately incompetent. We have robot mops that would make better presidents. Isn’t this rain /water thing a whacko blast from the past? We’re in reruns. Maybe he’s cured the dishwasher pandemic. Time for a straight jacket?

    Trump spent our dollars needlessly to set up a crane & 2 trucks on the White House lawn.
    Supposedly serious, responsible people spent time thinking up this stunt, setting the scene, sitting through the garbled rally nonsense... while our country’s scientists & doctors & nurses & teachers & business owners made life & death decisions for the good of our country.
