Well after my recent required physical I got on the bandwagon. It was required by my doctor and so forth.
Actually the words High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Diabetic were more than enough to motivate me. Since March 18th I have taken off 35 pounds by following the diabetic guidelines for food. The tough part for me was that 6 ounces of protein thing.
The good news is that after a further 6 week check up my blood pressure is better, my cholesterol is good and my blood sugars are very good.
The suggestions about frequent healthy small meals/snacks (whole grains, non processed foods etc), water and exercise are all excellent suggestions.
Here's to you all seeing less of me!
I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!
