Hi All:

I am still on a roll and have been exercising and staying away from sugar and fat. I have lost 2 more lbs for a total of -29 gone forever. Now if I could just find some quilting time!!!

Thank goodness I lost one of the two pounds I had gained last week. Hope everyone is well and has time to enjoy the season.

Well, I don't see my post from last week--wonder what happened?

Anyway, as of last Wed., I was the same weight--gained a bit over Thanksgiving weekend, but lost it before Wed. That's the benefit of weighing every day--I can see when I start to get off track.

So this week, I've lost 1.6 lbs, for a total of 33.2 pounds so far. The dog and I started walking, but don't have a routine yet. I need to make this a habit, but it's been so darned cold, I haven't made myself get out there as much.

On Monday, I go for my follow-up labwork, and see my doc on Thurs. to get the results. (Keeping my fingers crossed that I can lose another pound or two by then.) I'm sure my A1C will be down--hopefully to within normal range. Just don't know if he'll take me off my diabetic meds this time or not.

Ok, well newbie Dana here from East Texas. Just getting started on this weight loss journey, but so motivated to do this, just plain tired of being tired. I have young granddaughters and want to be around to see them grow up. So I have not lost anything this week, today is actually my 2nd day of trying to watch the calories.
So thank you for allowing me to join your group and I hope and Pray I don't bring your numbers down!

I lost a pound! I am down nine pounds since I joined your group! I could not be happier!
My secret? Making my own lunch when I am working. No more buying and eating expensive and fattening sandwiches or fast food.
Have you all heard that Weight Watchers has totally revamped their program? Now fruits are zero points! However, foods with a higher fat content may be higher in points now.

Holding even at -17. Congratulations to all the losers and welcome to our new member.

Welcome Dana - Hang with it and the weight will come off.

There is no magic pill. The secret is eat less, move more.

Every plan that works, no matter if it is Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Whatever. The key is less calories in and move your butt. That is what I am doing. My best secret for killing a craving, a spoonful of peanut butter. It will work for me every time. I know it has lots of fat, but really good protein and the fat makes you feel full.

I have lost 29 lbs since Mid August and have consistently lost. I eat 1200-1400 calories a day and exercise 4 times a week and if I have eaten all my calories for the day and I am still hungry, I eat a spoonful of peanut butter, and grab my nearest sewing project or just go to bed.

Such a long post because someone asked me what my secrets are, there aren't any. Except my motivation, and that is "I WONT BECOME A DIABETIC! I REFUSE!!" So I have to do something about it.

Hang in there and ask for help when you need it.

I do the spoonful of peanut butter, too, like Janice does, and I buy only the natural peanut butter--all it has in it is peanuts. So many of them add sugar, we're making sugar addicts of our children.

I also keep hummus around and celery sticks, because the celery sticks are full of fiber and actually take more calories to digest than they possess. Fiber and acidic foods help keep your body from absorbing as much fat.

A heads up on label-reading: I was in a hurry over Thanksgiving, and picked up a container of sugar-free cool whip without looking at the label. Well it may not have sugar in it, but it does have high fructose corn syrup! So deceptive! I learned my lesson on that one.

A lot of products out there have "dextrose", "sucrose", "maltitose (sp?)", which are only different forms of sugar, and still feed your sugar addiction. Did you know most canned tomatoes have sugar added?

Going through the grocery store definitely takes me longer now (sigh), but I try to allow more time, because I'm seeing the importance of reading labels in order not to sabotage myself.

All under the heading of lifestyle changes....

I'll ditton the humous...It's a great thing to put on salads or put in a pita. I used it during my diet and still do now. It is yummy!
Everybody is doing so well and I love the comments from Janice and Stephanie this week. I know what I need to do but changing my attitude is what I need to do. Thanks to everyone for making this challenge a battle I can do with others and not just by myself!
