  • After going to the Dr's and getting a skin scraping, to make sure no other annoying bacteria have joined in. I decided I felt like taking a bit of a walk. So I got in 4,000 unplanned steps today. That was on top of the I could not sleep and rode my indoor bike for 35 minutes in the middle of the night.
  • What a powerful accomplishment. You have so much to be so proud of.
  • Slowly start exercising again, split it up into 3 15 minute times as I can tolerate and joints will tolerate. Keep eating at maintainence, record everything I eat. With said bite I got, and extreme swelling for right now food prep is out. Drink, drink and drink more fluids hit 96 oz daily for next week. Work on good…
  • I so like using not only ice packs, but something I learned when I went to chiropractic therapy a few years ago. If you have specific trouble spots. Buy some small cups/like dixie size the paper ones. Fill with water/freeze then literally unwrap like a snowcone or popscicle and in a circular motion use on the tight…

  • I'd like to grumble because I have no choice to kind of go on maintain for a bit. Not sure how long. Because while moving furniture around and dusting, and mopping. I disturbed a very unhappy spider who got even with me. Chomped me twice and the Dr said could see double fang marks sigh!! So now I have a drain in open…
  • Yes I have a little voice, saying excuse me, you do not deserve anything. You let yourself get to this point. Same little voice yells at me about you let yourself get to point of being a type 2 diabetic. And you deserve it. Those are hard to overcome, and say yes I can treat myself in some way and I have worked hard to be…
  • I am down 81.5 pounds. I started in May 2018 and through December 2018 stayed on track. Quit in January 2019 through August 2019, gained back 17 pounds of the 65 that I had lost. So relost the 17 pounds, and 16.5 more pounds. And made the decision this is it. No more quitting, not an option. And I have logged every single…

  • Pralines N Cream by Baskin Robbins
  • I am going to look for Becks Diet Solution. I have been craving snacks lately bad. And often they lead to a downfall for me. But I am determined that there is no quitting this round. This is it, to keep on keeping on. So I did make some pumpkin fat balls as I call them. Not quite as heavy duty as fat bombs. But working 3 a…
  • Trust me I have done my research, and I also will go out on a limb and say I have been on a huge number of diets over many years. I am 61, I was never the thin child, teenager, adult. And I can tell you that when I was at 50% of my food from Carbs I was an uncontrolled Diabetic on multiple diabetes medications, both oral…
  • Hi Jennifer, did your Dr. office send you to a dietician or send you to diabetes education? I have been a type 2 for over 20 years now. Have you decided or thought about what type of style of eating you are going to follow? Because as a diabetic, food choices are important, so even if you do calories in, calories out. You…
  • Well CICO is proven to work. Keto/low carb by the way are still CICO, because the facts are no one loses weight unless they are in a calorie deficit. This may surprise you or not. I follow low carb, and while kind of close to Keto, I do not eat tons of fat. And my total cholesterol as of 12/19/2019 is 100. I shoot for 55…
  • Increased exercise, can and does cause a bit of water weight gain. Have you used a Keto calculator to get your grams for carbs, fat and protein. Not talking percentages, but grams. Because that will still equal out to a calorie total. And the better ones, ask how many times per week you exercise as well, and take that into…
  • So today yes on Superbowl Sunday here in the USA. I decided on a Sunday afternoon to go and brave a SuperWalmart, they had something I have been putting off going and getting to start a home project. So off I went, and while there decided to pick up some grocercies. I saw something that totally made me laugh, and figured…
  • Sensible to me, means you can stand in the check out line at a grocery store anywhere and read the headlines on the magazines in the racks and chuckle to yourself on the outrageous promises on how to lose weight. That sound to good to be true, well because they are. I often go to Pinterest for recipes for low carb. And…
  • It is wonderful mostly here in Central Florida on the Gulf side. Happy Dance time for me, because we have been in the 60's during the day for over a week. I love it. In general I do not get cold, I am the opposite I am always warm. And even now with losing over 80 lbs. I am still cranky when warm and humid, and when hot…
  • Well my daughter is in another country workin, so no buying for her. And hubbie I will get him something else this year. But I told him get me no chocolate no candy. I will make a sugar free chocolate mousse dessert for us to eat. Will be small, we eat then gone and within my allowance of food.
  • I have been doing Chair Yoga for about weeks and I really like it. I started with about 4 basic moves, and have added another 4. Something else I have tried, but admit not doing regularly but want to do more often. Is basically you lay on the floor on a comfortable mat or blanket, but then have some more cushioning. A…
  • I am on a low carb diet, and not a Keto diet. As a normal week I will be at or below 50 to 55 5-6 days a week. And mostly on Sundays will go up but not over 65 to 70. I have been eating this way for over a year now. I have dropped from my food list white flour, whole wheat flour, which means no pasta of any type. As well…
  • This is a great group and it is so helpful to read tips, updates from others that walk the same path. Because for anyone losing weight I think we try some things that work well, and some well that we are like um that was a total waste of time. So I enjoy yes enjoy reading what others have found that helped them or even…

  • I love black bean anything, but yeah the sodium content is in outer limits. I made some fairly low carb Chili, put more veges in it. And only used one can of beans, and it was low sodium black beans, that I rinsed twice. And spread out over 12 servings, hubby likes as well. But it amazed me how much even then 3/4 cup…

  • I do not think you have a motivation issue, I really believe motivation is one of the most overused words around. I noticed you have a number of items you say YOU NEED TO DO. But is that really true? Are you sure it is a NEED VS a WANT? If the phone is an issue, move it away from the bed, buy a real alarm clock, and make a…
  • You come across as a very determined person. I am in your corner for you getting to the weight that will satisfy you. And I totally understand how some weight comes back to revisit sometimes more than once. And we are here, because we have decided no more quiting just working on to get it off.
  • Talk about hitting a grandslam! Just so awesome.
  • Are you drinking enough water? Not everyone is aware of this, but if you are at all dehydrated even just a tiny bit when you have blood drawn. It can increase your Creatinine level to above normal ranges. Your other reading that is 52 and 56 sounds like your eGFR reading. What your Dr. is doing is the test for 3 months in…
