My goal is to eat healthy and exercise. If I loose weight it is a plus. I have also followed the Diabetes program. I don't have any issues. However, my son has type two Diabetes. While he is already on his own I wanted to know what he has to follow and live with everyday. This is just a better way to understand what he is facing. It is also a better way for me to prepare healthier meals when he comes over. My husband is benefiting from the change to healthier eating and exercise as well. I told my son, he said he wasn't surprised I wanted to learn more. It gave him the opportunity to open up to his personal challenges. So, healthier diet, more exercise, more water and I know I will loose weight. My personal goal is to go the distance and not to give up after four months. I am on my way!

Other Information:
The Diabetic program has been great. I made Easter dinner using the things I learned about food. My son loved it and kept telling me it was a great dinner. My daughter's family enjoyed it as well. Healthy and yummy. I am going to remain on the Diabetic program.
April 17, my son A1C has gone up two points. He said he needs to record his food again. He lost 21 lbs. His fiance died in Oct. 2017. I know he is still going through the grief of the loss. She was his high school sweetheart. They were together since high school. 16 years. I have told him about Sparkpeople, but he is his own person. All I can do is support him.
