If you don't set a goal, how will you ever know when you reach your goal?

So, my list of the strategies I will be using to reach .Nov. 2013
1. Eat a lot more veggies & fruit.
2. Limit unhealthy food and keep tracking on SP.
3. Exercise.....
4. Sleep better, with a little leg & waist exercises before sleeping, because insomnia and weight loss don't work together.
5 Go to bed earlier to avoid food temptations at nite and because my body likes to get up early.

Well I've been around for 3 years now. The initial 20 lbs. are off again. Way back in the beginning: The harder I tried the more challenges I faced- I have persevered despite no losses showing on the scale and learned to see other measures of my success. Being diabetic, my blood sugar is a major indicator of successful results. When I started on SP, my bs were in the 13-15 range for early a.m, now I have my AIC go down to 6.9, and I'm still here and getting motivated again. So, there are successes other than on the scale.

Words of Wisdom:
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance....

Member Since: 12/27/2009

Fitness Minutes: 38,831

My Goals:
To get my sugars under control with diet and exercise so I don't have to take any more meds or go on the needle for as long as I can avoid it.

Dec. 09 - a.m. bs was 13
Feb. 10 - a.m. bs was 7.8
May 10 - a.m. bs. was 6.1
July 2013 AIC - 6.9

Sept 2016 AIC 9.8
Well,now it's 2017 and I had to acknowledge that my body needs the help of insulin in November 2016. So, now my goals are to get a balance of carbs/pro/fat and healthy blood sugars...

My Program:
Do Walk Away the Pounds or walking outside weather permitting at least 5 days a week.

Track calories and stay with SP range...

    Thanks so much for the comment on my last blog about juicing. It is something I plan to do again in the near future. It really is a learning experience. For me, it was learning that we can be starving to death while, at the same time, getting fatter and fatter. When on the juice fast, when it is done according to the real program and with the right combination of vegetables (each item in the green juice is there for a specific REASON), the body does thank you ... Like it nearly screams - "Thank you for finally feeding me real nutrition".
    Unfortunately, but the TRUTH, I CHOSE to go back to eating garbage. My heart and soul was not yet ready to make real changes after my juice fast ened. Soooo, I am FAT. LOL ...
    BUT, dear friend, this is a new year and a new day - and "WE" will turn things around again. Right now it sounds like you are facing some huge challenges, but please know that I am here for you if and when you ever want to share your burden. I know I cannot do much to lessen the problems you face but I will always be here to listen and you can vent anytime you want!
    Take good care and try to stay grounded. It is not always easy and some days are impossible, but maybe things will turn out better than expected at this time.

    Wishing you a happy new year! emoticon
