No more Weight Watchers, Taking on Low Carb

Sunday, March 22, 2015

So Weight Watchers isn't for me. My blood sugars were getting out of control == again== (for those who don't know, I am Type 2 Diabetic). I lost a good amount of weight but having my blood sugar under control is more important. I started low carb in Feb. and lost 8 pounds in a month. I started vigorously working out and gained some back. Apparently that is ok according to my diabetes educator I am going to. I feel A LOT better since I have been doing the low carb thing. I need to keep reminding myself, things aren't going to happen overnight. It took many years to get this way. Here is a progress photo I like to share. The picture on the very left is so embarassing but it reminds me where I have been and where I will never be ever again. The middle is me in January of 2014. The very right is me January/February of this year. I have come a long way and still have a long way to go.

    It's good you found something that helps you be successful. I use Weight Watchers as a framework within which I have used several different eating plans. If you had wanted to, you probably could have done the low carb plan using the Simply Filling choices. I enjoy the fellowship of my good friends in WW, without whom, WW just wouldn't be the same, regardless of my plan of eating. Best to you. Glad you're feeling better. That's what counts.

    Glad you found something that's working for you. I bet the weight gain was muscle replacing fat! Great!
