Just joined hubby is pre-diabetic and I go in spurts being pre-diabetic. Getting on a healthy eating lifestyle so we both can stay off of medication. Goals, exercise 5-6 times a week, 20-20 minutes depending if ST or cardio. Stay within a healthy calorie range, watch sodium, sugar and cholesterol amounts.

For me, it's eating healthier. I was never much on sweets, but I ate a lot of junk despite that. So now I'm eating more vegetables and fruit. Less salty, crunchy stuff. Less cheese and dips and all those other luscious yummies.

I hardly ever eat fast food anymore, but when I do eat it, it's always something as low sodium and healthy as I can get it. Ask me about the lowest sodium menu choices at most fast food joints. I can probably tell you. Sadly, I have had to eliminate Whataburger from my diet entirely. They are the worst about sodium bombing their food. Sonic isn't too far behind, but I do get a diet cherry limeade periodically. Not so much now that summer is over, but still the occasional treat. All fried chicken places are out.

It's paid off to eat healthier. I've lost over 40 pounds since my diagnosis right before 4th of July, and my A1C dropped like a rock from 14.1% to 6.6% within three months. So it's been worth it.

But every now and then, I would kill to have a Honey Barbecue Chicken sandwich with onion rings and Spicy Ketchup at Whataburger. emoticon

I started taking turmeric, cinnamon and chromium as my Mom was dying of complications of diabetes. A friend told me that combination would help lower my blood sugar. It did reduce my A1C quite a bit within a year. I still work closely with my doctor and still take the 3 daily. I also hired an online weight loss coach and she helped me drop 27 lbs in 2 and half months. Shes awesome! She calls herself the macronazi
Im leaving the group because I am no longer pre diabetic. Wish everyone well!

Hi all. I haven't been on Spark for a while and I have truly fallen off the wagon. I am here to regroup because I feel the difference in my body. I'm going to eat less carbs and more protein and get back to activity (no matter how minor it is). This is what I'm doing to help my diabetes.

The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. DON'T GIVE UP!

Life is like a camera . . . Focus on what's important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out, Take Another Shot.
