performance: gaining 0.3 lb a week

Im 62 yrs old and 5'2" tall. I'm very happily married. I started out on the "you on a diet" program here. When I saw the results my daughter on this board was getting on the "South Beach Diet" I switched to that one and have been losing steadily since. My doctor was surprised when she saw my latest bloodwork. I don't have to take cholesteral meds and (UPDATE HERE) 3 months later while on South Beach my doc now took me off the blood pressure med's. She said "WOW" when she saw my bloodwork and approved of the diet plan. She also encouraged me not to stay on phase 1 too long (like the book says). She said the grains and fruits are very important. Life is too great to cut it short now! My oldest daughter is a member of this site (ImLuuvd), and she has been such a big help to me. It is working so well for her and she has inspired me. I've tried just about everything else out there. You never know when your children will grow up and become an inspiration to you...but its pretty wonderful. We've been through a lot together, this has got to be a piece of cake compared to other obstacles we've faced.

UPDATE 9/25/08 Now at 148 lbs and seem to have gotten content here. Time for me to lose the rest that my doc wants me to lose. I'm holding my weight well distributed but doc says I have 20 more lbs to lose, but only on the condition that I keep it off. No Yo-Yo-ing allowed.

What Do You Have for Breakfast?
oatmeal (I believe its why my blood work is so much better now)
quiche cups to go (even though I eat them here at home..not on the go) and a lot of times I have cottage cheese with a turkey sausage link/or pattie.

Diabetes - HELLLLP!
My husband went on the South Beach Diet with me and he has been diabetic a long time. His entire family of seven brothers and sister's are all diabetic, some on insulin, some on pills. Hubby was on pills (notice I said WAS). The south beach diet was written by a heart doctor but it also follows the glycemic index for low glycemic foods. Hubby had his meds reduced and in one year on the diet with me (he cheated more than me) he is no "NON-diabetic". he takes no meds at all and although his doctor continues to monitor him because of his history, he is not considered mecially a "non-diabetic".

I am going to include some links for helpful sites that can get you started on south beach diet. it's easy to do and only the first two weeks are severly restricted to get you over the cravings and into fat burning mode. Once you are past the first two weeks the diet is easier to follow and opens you up to much more food choices.



Just pick a diet that seems to follow along with your goals and what you believe you can live your life with. good luck and feel free to message me,

what are you giving up for lint
I heard a service about lent that changed the way I think of it. Instead of "giving up" something, think of it as "making an improvement" in your life.. whether it is to exercise to get a healthier body, or don't think of it as giving up tv, think of it as getting more involved and playing games with the family instead. Use lent as a time to improve yourself.

Since I am limited on exercise at this time due to a back problem, my choice for lent is to journal something positive about myself each day and to "give thanks" for it and for the things in my life that are positive each day.

Best Quotations
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever
