following: I Can Make You Thin System by Paul mcKenna
performance: Steady

Hello! My name is Deborah but my friends call me Deb! I am happily married with 3 sons & 2 daughters. My goal is to lose weight & get healthy. My plan: 1) healthy diet, 2) more exercise, 3) better sleep, and 4) reduced stress. Somebody said that. It's good!

In January 2013, I weighed 232 lbs and I was diagnosed with diabetes. I began watching my carbs and calories, eating a low fat diet, and avoiding sugar. I began to walk more, starting from 300 steps a day and slowly increased it to 5000 steps a day (2.5 miles). When I joined this website I weighed 202 lbs. What a great site, with such encouraging members! After losing 44 pounds, my A1C was 5 (normal) and my doctor told me that I can stop taking the diabetic pills and cut my cholesterol pills in half! I am so happy and I continue to eat healthy and exercise daily so that I will not have to go back on the Metformin.

Start: weighed 232 lbs ✔ Extremely Obese, BMI 42.43, diabetic
Struggle: weigh 225 lbs ✔ Stopped eating desserts, BMI 41.15
1st goal: weigh 218 lbs ✔ Obese now, BMI 39.87
milestone: weigh 202 lbs ✔ Joined FatSecret, BMI 36.94
mini goal: weigh 197 lbs ✔ Stopped drinking diet soda, BMI 36.03
mini goal: weigh 188 lbs ✔ Why did I pick that number? BMI 34.38
Surprise: weigh 186 lbs ✔ Doctor stopped my diabetic pills! BMI 34.02
mini goal: weigh 175 lbs ✔ Weight before I had children, BMI 32.0
Surprise: weigh 171 lbs ✔ Doctor stopped my cholesterol pills! BMI 31.27
2nd goal: weigh 164 lbs ✔ my BMI 29.99, no longer obese, Slightly Overweight
mini goal: weigh 150 lbs ✔ Weight on my driver's license! BMI 27.43
mini goal: weigh 143 lbs ✔ Another random number; BMI 26.15
The GOAL: weigh 136 lbs - BMI will change to 24.87, Normal or Healthy weight

kitchen question, totally off topic

What do you put in that hard to reach cabinet above your stove? I'm rearranging my kitchen cabinets. Have all this stuff waiting to be put somewhere. Trying to figure out what should go where. In a way it applies due to helping out with cooking.

Jeri, I've been following your home improvement in your journals. It makes me happy that you are doing what you need to do, according to what you like. However, I do hope other people reply to your topic. This is interesting. Smile

Finally I got that unopened bag of buttermilk pancake mix down from the cabinet above the stove. It was expired. I think my husband bought it in 2009 and had it in the basement pantry until our youngest daughter moved it to the kitchen to use it, but she never did. It weighed 10 pounds (4.53 kg). I think I burned a little calories lifting that bag and throwing it in the trash can. Hate to throw away food, but it was expired!
