performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

51 yo mother of five and grandmother to one. I have lived in Alaska since 1995, but don't ski or snowboard. So, it was hard to keep up my walking exercise routine. I was 145 lbs when I arrived in the state and weighed 220 lbs the last time I was in my doctor's office on April 30, 2010. He diagnosed me with type 2 Diabetes, put me back on high blood pressure medicine, high bad cholesterol, low good cholesterol, and high sugar. So time for a dietary adjustment to lose weight and control all those numbers. He gave me three months - till the end of July - to lose weight and bring some numbers down. If I don't, I get the full course of meds. I hope to continue losing weight (weighed 205 this morning) and stick to this.

Anemia
I am anemic, too, and my doctor has me on two iron pills a day. Remember, though, that in order for your body to actually get the iron, you have to consume some Vitamin C daily as well. Try drinking a little orange juice with your iron. Be aware that orange juice has more carbs than you would think. I would also suggest you keep some carbs in your diet and eat red meat (low in carbs) and spinach (high in iron).
