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.
