The doctor said yes as he went over the results with me. I think my eyes were popping out. I might have said wow a few times.


The biggest change for me is increased exercise. Could that be the difference? I havenít lost any weight due to the exercise, but I feel better.




I'm so glad you posted this! My cardiologist has been bugging me to increase my exercise. I know it helps, but hearing it from a peer rather from the doctor makes me realize how much it really does for the numbers!

Congratulations on a job well done!

Thanks Carol.

It really is sinking in that my increased exercise is what made the difference. My diet was the same & my weight the same. The only change was going to the gym 3 times a week & doing the resistance/ weight machines for 90 minutes. Thatís got to be it. The weight training. Not just walks or elliptical like I had been doing. Gotta really work those muscles too. I will be interested to see what my next blood work in 6 months will be as I continue this exercise routine.


I did my thing at the gym yesterday and Iíll go tomorrow. Today I have the grand kids all day, tonight I will either walk or do the elliptical.

Me again...

Just updating that calorie counting still isn't going to work for me. Never has. You all are admirably disciplined and self-controlled but not me. I get triggered to overeat with a calorie restriction focus so my moderation needs to be different I guess. Back to satiety but no cheese . Let that scale number fall where it may.

Amy, donít worry. Calorie counting doesnít work for everyone. I keep track to see how much Iím eating, mainly cause I donít have a stop meter!

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer!
The past 10 days have been a rollercoaster of emotions.
I'm trying to go back to school to finish my bachelor's degree in public health and go on to PA school. I thought I had it lined out that I could move my 5th wheel on to my dad's property (for free) but learned that won't work now because his septic system is too taxed as it is. To make matters worse, I won't be able to receive federal loans to help pay for my expenses because my trade school put me over the limit. So, what originally was a plan to not work and take 16-18 credits per quarter has now changed to not going to school for a year, working to save as much money as I can, and trying to find a place to live. If I can save enough money, I'll try to go back to school next year.
Ugh, I'm stressed.
To make matters worse, work life has been terrible so I'm walking on eggshells shells. I finally learned I will be moved from my verbally abusive provider to something else but I won't know exactly what until Tuesday. This could be terrible news since one of the options is working 3 days a week until 7pm--I have a kid at home on summer break. I'm already feeling guilty spending most of the day away from her now.
So, food confessions of a fat girl: I've not been A'72 at all. I've actually eaten anything I can get my hands on. I feel like crap, I look like crap, and I'm sure my attitude is crap.
I plan on starting today! I'm off for he next 4 days, and I'm going to get some things in order. I'm going to start A'72 today. No matter what happens next week, I know I won't be with my abusive provider anymore. There IS light at the end of the tunnel!!
I know everything will work out, I'm just down because it all hit me this week. I have a good support system for when it does all work out, so there's that!
If you pray, please pray for me and my daughter. I need a (cheap) place to put my 5th wheel, I need a good paying job, and I need Lily to get into a good school. If all of these things work out, I know I could go back to school next year and move forward with life!! Right now I'm feeling stuck in a rut.
Thanks for letting me unload, sometimes it's better to see it all in words to know where the holes are.

Hello All...

We went on a long road trip for about 25 hours in two days. We are exhausted and trying to recover. We went to get my brother to stay with us for awhile. Now I have two men to cook for, which isnít going to be easy!

I went to the gym today. It felt good to work out.


I hope everyone is doing well.


Iíve been dealing with a lot of stress, but still staying on plan. There are no excuses to go off. I keep plugging away!

Lilsmommy,

Sounds like you are going through a lot. Not having a home or a place for your home has to be so stressful. I think staying on plan during the stressful times will actually make you feel better.

I hope you were able to get things figured out. Iím rooting for you!
