    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    If you would like to be a member of this challenge you can copy and paste the the link below, or click on my username and leave me a message or click on the BLUE BIGGEST LOSER Icon on my page. Join the team and sign up for the next challenge on the Spring Waitlist thread.

    Richard Bernstein was a Type 1 diabetic from age 12 and was told he wouldn't live past 42, so at 42 he went to medical school (he'd been an engineer) and he became a diabetic specialist. 95% of his patients are T2. He is a healthy 83 now thanks to a diet of Keto.
    My endocrinologist said I should stay on Metformin, a weekly shot of Bydureon, acarbose with meals, and Armour Thyroid. I take blood pressure medicine and he said I should stay on it even at goal weight as it helps the kidneys. Don't be afraid of medication, use it with the diet and exercise. My blood sugar was 115 and another doctor told me I didn't need Metformin as diabetes starts at 126. Well, this morning my blood sugar is 100 and I no longer have night cravings and I'm down 37#. He told me "At your age you can't expect to lose weight since you have Metabolic Syndrome." Well, with the medication, I stopped night time eating and I feel so much better.
