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 will be 26.15
The GOAL: weigh 136 lbs - BMI will change to 24.87, Normal or Healthy weight

Crockpot chicken chili
Looking at the ingredients, I think it should make ten 1 cup servings, depending on how thick you make it. Use a one cup measure and transfer some of it to freezer containers. Or just measure it into a large container to store in the refrigerator so you can wash your crock pot. I added the recipe to my cook book. Smile

That is a man feeding the little girl. What a joker he is. I hope that is a one time thing and not every day bait and switch. smh

I'm not doing Atkins, so I'm reluctant to give you snack advice, in case it would be wrong. Maybe someone will answer you soon!

It is not ambition that sets a man/woman apart; it is the distance he/she is prepared to go. You can do anything you set your mind to do. Good luck!
