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.
