performance: losing 0.7 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 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 42.4, diabetic
Struggle: weigh 225 lbs ✔ Stopped eating desserts, BMI 41.1
1st goal: weigh 218 lbs ✔ Obese now, BMI 39.9
mini goal: weigh 197 lbs ✔ Stopped drinking diet soda, BMI 36.0
mini goal: weigh 188 lbs ✔ Why did I pick that number? BMI 34.4
Surprise: weigh 186 lbs ✔ Doctor stopped my diabetic pills! BMI 34.0
mini goal: weigh 175 lbs ✔ Weight before I had children, BMI 32.0
Surprise: weigh 171 lbs ✔ Doctor stopped my cholesterol pills! BMI 31.3
2nd goal: weigh 164 lbs ✔ my BMI is 30 now!
mini goal: weigh 163 lbs ✔ my BMI changed to Slightly Overweight
mini goal: weigh 150 lbs ✔ Random number that just seems good
mini goal: weigh 143 lbs - Another random number
The GOAL: weigh 136 lbs - my BMI changes to Normal or Healthy weight
