Just found out that my blood work is showing that I am pre-diabetic. So now I not only am adjusting my diet for fatty liver but this too. Funny how ignoring the advice "eat right and exercise" can come back to bite you in the butt. I can do... Read more

It seems like I am always "watching what I eat". Yesterday I decided to eat my hotdog ON THE BUN and then I ate a hamburger ON THE BUN with all the fixin's. Today I feel great! I think I needed that break. So, maybe that will be my new plan.... Read more

My refridgerator is full of fruits and vegetables! I ran out of containers to put my washed items in, so I had to use my tupperware ice creamer saver to put leaf lettuce in. Maybe I finally have turned the corner? I am soooo proud of me. :)... Read more

Obviously when you start losing weight, you will notice little things first. The first thing I noticed was when I weighed in last, I could stand up straight and actually see past my stomach. I have always had an "apple" shaped body. This is g... Read more
