New to challenge and quite unsure how this goes, but here's my deal:

I was diagnosed diabetic near the end of Feb. this year. Not pre-diabetic, but full on diabetic, though my numbers were just over the threshold. Scared silly, I found Spark people almost immediately,and so far I've lost 30 lbs AND now test as pre-diabetic. I'm aware that I need to continue to say that I'm diabetic--it's not cured, it's managed.

My next goal is to test "normal" (and yes, I do know that I will still have to be very careful even if I get that result.) To that end, I'm watching carbs and exercising. I have never tested my fasting blood sugar, just rely on the 3 month check ups with my Dr. I'm not sure why I wasn't told to do this, but it doesn't matter now, I'm on the right path, but this is why I won't be posting my FBS--I have no idea what it is.

My next checkup is in about 2 months, so I'm hoping this challenge will get me into the "normal" range, the timing is right.

I'm also hoping to learn a lot, and wish everyone well on their own journeys towards "normal."

FBS on 7/7/2016 was 160 which is still to high but considering the day before and eating a late dinner the night before, around 160 was expected. Actually I thought it might of been higher then that.

Tuesday the 5th was a little off for me. I worked late then only got a few hours sleep before off to watch the grandkids. I forgot to check my FBS in the morning which really would not of been a real FBS since I ate late and only slept a few hours. When I got home I slept most of the day away so therefore did not eat right. On the brighter side I did get my exercise in today with a little added when I played with the kids.

Absolutely. I've found myself in the same state of affairs. And, not too long ago. I have to keep reminding myself to focus on the prize and stop looking in other directions. May I ask you a question? Help keep me focused and honest. I would appreciate that. Friends??????

I Agree, the answer is always right in front of us though sometimes we are blind in seeing what the true answer is. When we open our eyes and see the answer then we find our way in have a healthier life.

Hello everyone
6 months ago I had lost 16 pounds and my FBS was between 116-138. That is when I tracked everything that I was eating and exercising daily. Somewhere along the line I lost myself and stopped tracking my daily intake and exercising. Though I have not gained any weight back, my FBS spiked to the 170s. This may still be better then what it was before in the 200s but still I realized how important it is to stay on tract and to create goals.
I have been back on track the past 3 days and today my FBS was 126. That there just showed me that exercising and eating right is very important to a healthier life.

This week so far I haven't reached the 200's even after a meal so things are progressing well.
Breakfast every day
drinking all my water daily
mild exercise
