***snail's pace***

Wednesday, May 07, 2008

Yes I have been on my way, moving toward eating more healthy and living more healthy, even doing more exercise, but the pace is really slow. I am not getting discouraged, I just know that at the speed I am going it will take a lot longer that the projected goal to get where I am going. I know I shouldn't be discouraged because any speed in the right direction will eventually get you where you are going. I know it is harder to lose weight when you are older and more difficult when you have diabetes. I am having my sugars much more in control now and using less insulin so I would have hoped the weight would move a little faster but at this rate, its about 1.4 lbs a week. Yes that sounds good but at my weight I would expect it to move a little faster than that. At this rate it will take me about 2 and 1/2 years. In stead on the 1 and 1/2 years I had hoped for. It didn't help that I had to buy a new scale and with it came an extra 10 lbs I thought I had already lost. I know I just have to hang in there and keep working. Looking foward to vacation in June and to see how well I can make program work for me when I am away from computer.

    Slow and Steadyt wins the race.. and statistics tell us that the people who lose it slowly are the ones more likely to keep it off. Just try to keep your eye focused on the end goal and remember this is your health you are striving for..

    Have you ever talked to your doctor about Byetta? It is a fairly new Diabetic med and it is helping many diabetics to lose weight safely.

    Have a great day and keep doing what you are doing.. cut out all your processed foods and get back to basic foods will help greatly.

    Have a great day, debbie emoticon

    Weight loss varies from time to time, hang in there. Focus on the positive, getting your blood sugar under control is super. It will help you live a longer healthier life.
