Well folks, it's another week. What are your plans to support yourself on this journey to health??

We're headed to Maimi tomorrow, so I'll be packing up healthy foods to bring with me- homemade gummies, salad made out of chicken and veggies with olive oil and vinegar on the side, and a larabar. And I'll be sure to pick up a bottle of water after we get through security.

Just joining you all.

I bought the Healthy Calendar Diabetic cookbook that was recommended on this thread. I am not Diabetic, but am borderline, so I thought it might help me. I will be making my first meal from it tonight.

I am also writing down what I eat to help focus me and avoid mindless eating.

I have found many videos on youtube that are just walking through various Disney parks. Being to far to be able to go to walk I bring up the videos on my TV as I walk on the treadmill. Great motivation!

As one of the resident doctors here, I totally agree. The diabetic diet is really the diet that everyone should be on. Smaller portions, limiting simple carbs, less fat, more whole grains, well-balanced meals. I often give out diabetic diet sheets to my non-diabetic patients who simply need to lose weight.

And yes, if you are "borderline" or prediabetic (the current terminology), that's definitely the path you should be following. The way to avoid progressing from prediabetic to full blown diabetes is to eat better, exercise more, and lose weight.

Had my day "off" yesterday... to have what I wanted... but really didn't diverge much from what I've been doing.

I have to get up to the gym soon... I'm a bit anxious about that... it's been a long time since I've done that... I've promised myself that I will do it 3 days this week... still have to get a lock for the locker room... maybe I'll do that tonight...

If you haven't exercised for a while, take it SLOW! Just do a very light workout, minimal weights, minimal resistance, minimal times. Don't try and do what you remember doing years ago. That might mean only 15-20 minutes of exercise. Just get things moving again but don't overdo it or you'll be sorry tomorrow (and the next day). Work up gradually to a "normal" routine.

I'm actually afraid of going TO the gym... I suffer from anxiety - which strangely didn't get me when I started my journey... but the gym is my one roadblock... I need to talk to my niece... she's an ironwoman and she's helping me take steps... Wish she lived closer - she'd go with me...

I have anxiety about going to the dentist. Break out in a cold sweat and all, even for a cleaning.

The good thing about the gym is that you actually don't need it. I cancelled my membership last year, and actually work out more now than before. I took up running, but walking is just as good. On my cross-train days I use a balance ball and some Cambell Soup cans to do some core exercises I found on Pinterest.

I have found that what you do isn't as important as just getting out and doing something.

You'll do great no matter what you do!

Thanks for the encouragement!

I made a chicken hash from the book last night. OK but needed more spice.
Tonight is a beef barley soup.

I am really enjoying the treadmill right now. Reading all the stories here really helps keep me motivated!

This is so true. It drives me nuts when I speak to patients about the need to exercise and the immediate response is, "I know I have to join the gym." NO! I didn't say you had to join the gym. I said you had to exercise.

Exercising involves going no farther than your family room, bedroom, basement, or maybe the backyard. You can exercise while you watch TV. You can exercise while you help the kids with homework. You can exercise while you brush your teeth, cook dinner, or do the laundry. You can exercise at work. Sure there are specific exercises that you can't do without special equipment but don't let that stop you from exercising. You don't need to go anywhere. You don't need a bunch of fancy or costly stuff. And you certainly don't need a lifetime contract with a monthly fee.

Back in August when we got home from Disney, I decided it was time to really focus more on my health. I was already pretty health conscious and still fit into the same size pants that I wore in high school in 1982 but they were getting a little snug. I weighed in at 172.6 at that time. So I decided enough was enough. I started paying more attention to my diet, cutting back on sweets, reducing portion sizes, and got back on the treadmill just to walk which somehow evolved into running. Since January 1 of this year, I've logged 43.58 miles on my treadmill in just over 15 hours (I use an iPhone app to track it but didn't start until January so I don't know what I did before that).

Anyway, I didn't really have a weight goal in mind. I just wanted to get in better shape. In the back of my head, though, I knew that when I graduated high school, I weighed 155. I thought it would be nice to at least get under 160 but had no idea if I could do that or not.

I just got on the scale and weighed 158.2! Not quite to 155 but darn close. That means I've lost over 14 pounds since the end of August. I have to admit I'm pretty proud of myself. That gives me a BMI of 22.7 which is excellent. Now I just need to keep at it and stick with the plan.

How is everyone else doing?

Hanging in there... had a migraine today... but other than that.........


I can't go by the BMI charts... if I got down to what they think I should be for my structure, I'd be unhealthy... I have a weight in mind that I know I can stay very comfortable at and accomplish. I'll be healthier and less likely to give up on unattainable goals.

BMI is useless when you are looking at an individual. Honestly, they shouldn't be used for anything but what they were designed for... to get an idea of a society or segment there of. Some of the healthiest people I know have high BMI due to muscle mass. All it does is look at height and weight.

Body fat percentage would be a better marker for most people. Especially since you can be "skinny" and still have a high body fat percentage due to lack of lean muscle.

I agree... my niece who does Ironman competitions... if she were to try to get down to what she should be on a BMI chart... it wouldn't be realistic. & she's almost all muscle. She's a big girl... we run that way in our family... but she's all muscle and very fit.
