I saw a doctor to get on Metformin and he told me "At your AGE you can't expect to lose weight as you have Metabolic Syndrome." My blood sugar test came back as 115 and he called me and said "Diabetes starts at 126 so you don't need to be on Metformin."
So,
I went to another doctor and he said "Read the Metformin Insert" and it said "IF you MIGHT become a Type 2 Diabetic, you can start the medication now." He said "You are close enough." That was nearly 3 yrs ago, and I've kept off the 50# I lost. I'm 70. Take time to listen to the YouTube interview that my doctor gave. It is titled

New to participating in the team but not new to Sparkpeople...just chiming in!! (not a one liner like so many other posts...)

I think what encourages me the most is seeing what encourages others - it gives me ideas on how to make it happen for me.

It been very quiet at work for the past 3 weeks and my old way of eating would've had me gain around 10 pounds over the holidays. Instead I've lost 11 pounds as of this morning! Binge watching youtube vids and lurking on the boards is what has kept my eye on the prize. Getting married in June 2018 is the rest - at 44 years old, I didn't think it would happen, but apparently, I'm living the dream!!

What am I doing, you may ask...Keto. I'm the girl that won't stick to a diet because she's hangry all the time. I'm the girl that'll take a running leap off the wagon and won't look back until all the weight has come back. NOT THIS TIME!

Thank you so much to MERAINA who sent me a sparkmail inviting me to the Valentine's Challenge. This is the first challenge I have participated in.

Music and that jello like feeling you get when you work your muscles to exhaustion. I think it something like a runners high, but I love that feeling!

Music encourages me, and so do my friends, family and boyfriend. It's nice talking with people who understand what this journey is all about, even if they aren't on it. I love all my Spark Friends, too, and am so glad to be getting back into the site after a very long hiatus.

I enjoy music anytime, especially when I am cleaning the house, the music is blaring.

MERAINA:

I am encouraged by my friends at home and online. Living alone and trying to eat properly and get fit is an uphill battle for me. I do not always post online as I recently took over a volunteer position as Treasurer for a Legion whose current Treasurer had a serious accident by his pool. There will be lots of rehab involved so I stepped in to help. I, also, have some new health issues and will most likely require some minor surgery to correct the problem. I will try to keep everyone updated by posting.

You are the same person today that you will be in five years from today, except for the people that you meet and the books that you read.

Encouraging others helps me to stay focused and motivated. Also doing challenges here, such as with the 5% challenge teams, really helps me. Music is motivation, too, especially when I'm on the treadmill. Keeps me moving and makes the time go faster.

I have found a new free app called Charity Miles. I choose a charity from their list and they donate money to it for each mile I walk, run, or bike. I can earn money for great charities, and I get healthier! I also have a dog who joins me on my morning runs, as she is getting a bit chunky, we are both getting fit together.

Music encourages me to get to moving in my Journey to Greatness!
When I put in my ear-buds & crank up the tunes I get in my own little world and get to moving. I cranked up the tunes yesterday as I tackled a mound of dress-shirts of my husband's that desperately needed to be ironed. As I ironed with my tunes in my task did not seem to take near as long as I dance around while working! I even heard myself singing a couple of times! LOL Never do I ever remember singing while ironing before! LOL
Happy Day!
