Joysh: Your reboot is going well. Good luck with the new semester. I am swamped doing grades from the last one.
Dak1lls: My dad also had diabetes and developed heart disease. The reason I lost my weight was because I had a pre-diabetes high blood sugar. I did not want to get diabetes. I wish I had learned to be healthy when I was younger also.
Mars735: I am not an expert, but think there is no limit to the amount of fiber you can have. I have never seen anything along those lines.
Purplemonster: Welcome to maintenance. Carbs are a trigger for me also. I hope you have a wonderful trip to Mexico!
65x65: That is scary about diabetes and blood sugar being related to dementia and alzheimers. The increasing rate of juvenile diabetes is depressing. I see so much of that in my low income students. Many are overweight by 4th and 5th grades.
Here is my Non Scale Victory. My husband compiled a DVD of old family videos. It was from the birth of my twins, through my third son and last my daughter.
Normally I absolutely hate looking at myself when I was obese. This time I looked at the old overweight me and thought. That is who you were. You are not that person now. (And I will never be again.) Instead of feeling sad, I felt resolved.
Kudos to all for the recognition
of where we were
and celebration for the resolve to stay where we are!
Health factors being a biggie for everyone is motivation..thanks for sharing.
Maile...love your NSV...but actually ..I think it is a scale victory!!!! A really big one!! Congrats!
