When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10lbs at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96 lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

Update: my cholesterol is now 181 and the HDL is I'm good and life is wonderful!

...yipee...will continue to watch carbs, starch and sodium and move every 20 minutes.

Update: 2017- I continue to educate myself and others with daily posts. I continue to log my foods, starch & cholesterol and watch the charts on Spark people. My A1C is a steady 5.5...maintaining my weight as well....yipee!

2019 My A1C s now 5.4

    I have some tips from long ago about foods. I will go over them closer. Just signed to your blogs. I have to warm you many platforms are flagging or suspending many people accounts who speak out against trump or anyone else they deem untouchable. America is not the America I remember. Especially since trump is in. There are team that support biden and others. It called proud Amercians keeping hope alive. Others if you so desire. My account was suspended from youtube for speaking for right and my opinion. Periscope is heavily monitoring comments and the like. We in for a wild ride since the trump era

    Trump's Obamacare replacement bill is an ‘age tax’ on older Americans.....The older you get and the lower your income, the bigger the premium increase you’re going to see. Under the health-care bill, insurers would be allowed to charge 50-60-year old adults up to five times more than younger people. Without Medicare that means the ad on TV says up to $4,000 year as an age tax.

    If you vote for Trump Medicare and social Seruity will cease. What will you do?
    Deplete your savings to live? How will you pay for your meds or an unexpected hospitalization? How will you pay your bills? Will you have to keep working into your 80's and 90's to survive?
    If you get Co-Vid will you be able to afford thousand and thousands of dollars to survive?
    Without Social Security, 21.7 million more Americans would be poor, according to analysis using the March 2019 Current Population Survey. Although most of those whom Social Security keeps out of poverty are elderly, 6.9 million are under age 65, including 1.2 million children.
