Enough Is Enough

On a recent doctor' visit,  I as told my blood sugar is too high--124 fasting, which isn't terrible, but is too high. Since I've been steadily gaining weight since the birth of my first child 26 years ago, I'm aware I need to lose weight to have better health.  I'd made attempts to lose weight, but, something inside me snapped that day.  Enough is enough.  My blood pressure is high; my cholesterol is high; now my blood sugar is high.  I've adopted a diabetic diet.  It isn't as hard as I thought it would be. Reading Mike Huckabee's book about his 100 pound weight loss has been very encouraging.  My favorite line from the book is, "Nothing tastes as good as it feels to be thin."   Although I have cravings, I've been able to stick with my diet. I've lost 9 1/2 pounds in 3 weeks and look forward to continuing my weight loss journey.

Great job!  We all have to hit that point when we're truly ready.  Keep up that momentum!

Good job. Getting started is sometimes the hardest part of weight loss.

Weight loss is 90% mental, 10% physical.  If your brain wants it, you can do it !  GO FOR IT!!

Good job, if you can prevent ending up with full blown diabetes too, that will be definately a plus.  Anything over 95 fasting is tipping into diabetes, so I'd be a bit worried too.  You can do this.
