following: I Can Make You Thin System by Paul mcKenna
performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

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 233 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.

adding historical weigh in dates doesn't work
Sorry that I am replying so late, because I did not see your post before. Maybe this will help someone else, too. When you are at MY FATSECRET, scroll down to MY TOOLBOX and click on "My Diet". There are five things you can do. Click on "enter historical weight." Click on the day of the calendar you want then add the weight. I hope this helps.
