A New Beginning

I had gone to the doctors last month and had blood work done. It came back that I might be diabetic. So I thought about it for a while and then talked my daughter Ruthie into going with me and we joined weightwatchers.

My thinking was, if I am diabetic, losing weight will help out with that, a lot. And if I'm not diabetic, well I am finally ready to change my life around enough to commit to working hard.

ANyway, last test came back and yep, I'm diabetic. Started taking a pill, which by the way, has my tummy in an uproar. Next week will go to the nutritionist and get the low down on what I really need to do for the diabetic diet. Going to take my weightwatchers books with me and see what we come up with.

But you are asking, how have I done so far in the last 2 weeks at weigh in????? Well I've lost 6.8 lbs so far. over 3 lbs each week. I think that is too much so I have to step up my food intake a bit. I guess 1 to 1 1/2 lbs a week is the goal.

You guys already know what I look like so will wait til I've lost like 50 lbs before I post a progress photo of me. hahahahha yeah like I can wait that long. lol

I am on Weight Watchers too. Have been for some time. I have a lot more to lose, but since I started in 2002 I have lost 103 pounds. It's a great program and I am looking forward to your progress photos.
