following: I Can Make You Thin System by Paul mcKenna
performance: losing 0.2 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.

Started: weigh 233 lbs ✔ Morbidly Obese, BMI 42.61, diabetic Jan 4, 2013
Struggle: weigh 225 lbs ✔ Stopped eating desserts, BMI 41.15

What's the first treat for yourself?
I thought when I reach my goal weight I will buy a smoothie maker. I reached my goal weight last October, but I still have not bought the smoothie maker. lol I bought myself a ring, with a birthstone for each one of my children. I feel so blessed. Saving my money to get that smoothie maker. Smile

calling all Seniors
Jeri, great example about carrying around suitcases that weigh what we used to weigh! I had a similar story of my knees hurting until I lost the weight. One knee actually hurts more than the other, due to injuries in childhood, but it feels better when I walk. If I sit at the computer too much it seems to lock in place and starts hurting. So I am happier when I walk.
