Now I sit me down to eat,
I pray the Lord I will not cheat.
If I should reach for cake or bread
please guide my hand to greens instead!
But help me Lord, if I indulge
and lose the Battle of the Bulge,
to understand that ounce for ounce,
It's Who I Am That Really Counts!

I'm a yo-yo dieter who's on the road to break that awful habit! No more diets for me, just a life-change that will start slow at first, taking one goal at a time until I have that as a life habit. Then I'll move on to the next goal and so on! I can overcome and will overcome!

Sept 2013, when I went in for my 6 month check-up, I got a wake up call. My blood sugar was "a little high," my dr said. Since diabetes runs in my family (both my mom & oldest sister had type 2 diabetes), this news shook me up! My dear sister passed away 3 yrs ago from complications to diabetes. I am taking this serious and working on a few helps I've found. Now I have a meter and am trying to lower my blood sugar levels by testing myself and eating healthier, low-carb meals.

    Candy, it looks like you had more than 10,000 steps each day from 10/23-26. Is that correct?

    I added you as a friend. Thanks for all your positive praise. This has been a journey and I know it is for life. I'm blessed with this site with all the support one could ask for. I think the problem is we hate to ask for help. I'm here if you need

    Hi Ruth-Ann - Just wondering how you are this Sunday. It is raining here - has been for most of the last four days - and very windy at times too. It is typical fall weather for us, but I should not complain as my sister up north has snow already.

    Just wanted to share this quote with you:

    "Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek." (Mario Andretti)

    emoticon and God bless,
