I am diabetic (type 2), but I don't test my sugar often because I am a needlephobe. Seriously, it makes me shaky and feel sick to do it. I tested this morning and was pleasantly surprised. At my last lab appointment, early November of last ye... Read more

Since I met my birthday goal of 337 or less by December 4th, I've decided to make another "long term" goal. I want to be 300 or less by my husband's next birthday. This gives me 6 months to lose and keep off 34.4 pounds. This averages out to ... Read more
