Thought I was just overweight then found out I have diabetes on 3/13/13 A1C a whopping 8.9. On top of my high cholestrol and tryglycerides I am just a ball of fun.

Trying to be serious and cut out all fun foods. Chocolate, my friend, you have to go. See you on the next challenge!

I hit a stonewall in my weight loss journey in October of 2013. I became a victim of self sabotage and self destruction of my own doing. I stopped in my own healthcare. Now 2015, I am treading on the right path cutting out cheats and trying to screw the head on again. I have decided to also change doctors, new year, tired of the same old babble, time to get a new focus.

Thanks for the support

Feeling encouraged
my 10 lb loss was quickly met with a scale that would not budge. I have gained and lost the next 3 lbs over and over again. I need to stop this terrible cycle.

Do we concentrate too much on what goes in and not enough on what comes out. ?
My doctor loves to prescribe the fish oil capsules for my high triglycerides, he wanted me taking 4000mg of fish oil a day....I told him I would never be out of the bathroom....
Don't over use the laxatives try a fish oil capsule or two they will clean you out good!

south beach diet vs. atkins
The dietician had me journal my eating we reviewed it and since I am an admitted carbohydrate addict she suggested SB. I am not a breakfast eater and oatmeal is my go to, so since i am not cooking an eggs bacon feast every morning that is what she suggested. I am open to any suggestions. Thanks for the support!

south beach diet vs. atkins
My new dietician suggested South Beach Diet over Atkins for me. I am researching many things.....then I found the low carb/high fat diet and have been looking at that.

Any thoughts on LC-HF as a diet choice? I appreciate any comments
