When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10lbs at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96 lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

    Without US support ISIS will return, even if under another name, and everyone who died there, Kurds and Americans will have died in vain, or died to make sure Trump’s hotels and apartments are full. Keeping in office a man who so clearly, by his own words has made a mockery of the Constitution he swore to preserve and protect is very far from what any patriotic American would want. Trump’s actions constitute an abuse of power and a threat to our democracy.

    Whether you think it’s a good idea or a bad idea to be in Syria, the reality is that we are.

    America’s most reliable ally and fighting force in that area has been the Kurds. Well, Donald Trump is basically throwing the Kurds away. You see, the dictator Erdogan talked to Trump and told him (I’m paraphrasing) “you ought to think about eventually getting out of Syria because we have a bone to pick with the Kurds and we’d hate for your troops to be caught in a crossfire” to which Donald Trump basically said “okay, we’ll cut and run—do whatever you want to the Kurds, we don’t care.” And now Trump invited Erdogan to the USA. McConnell issued a statement warning that Trump’s proposed withdrawal “would only benefit Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime. And it would increase the risk that ISIS and other terrorist groups regroup.

    Trump desperately likes to appease dictators and craves to be one himself. Trump has entered the eccentric dictator phase of his presidency.

    He promised to do “great” trade deals that would reverse the damage done by the “stupid” deals his predecessors signed. So far, he has yet to conclude a single deal, great or otherwise.

    He claimed to have ended the nuclear threat from North Korea, which proved to be a lie. Then he claimed he’d ended all testing, which was just as good. However testing continues
    You can bet your last nickel that when these sycophants sense that their siding with Trump is not useful to them any more, they will jump the Big Orange ship like the rats they are.

    It’s now crystal clear that the Republican Senate and Republican Congress have given the keys to the chosen one (Bah Hum Bug) and the power to rule to a totally incompetent, corrupt, bumbling fraud — a con man who is dismantling the great edifice of America brick-by-brick. Trump is surrounded by enablers, most of whom have tied their wagon to his fortunes and will see their own future fail if he is discarded. They will keep him in office to the bitter end.

    Demagogue Donald Trump exploited angry, dispossessed voters with his pathological lies and false promises. He has failed to deliver on a single “promise” — no health care bill, no wall has been built (thank goodness), no middle-class tax reform, etc. All he has done is to create tariff's and make things more expensive for Americans and call out for civil war and executions.

    Donald Trump is a cancer on the soul of America. When finally faced with impeachment for his abuses, he is lashing out and accusing everyone of treason, setting off new investigations, calling for civil war, CALLING FOR EXECUTIONS.

    Just what we need is a civil war. Yes, Trump will make our streets a battlefield. Are you people serious? Surprisingly enough, most people seem to want one. I think that's just plain crazy. I don't think people understand the severity of a civil war. There is no reason to start a civil war, but the former-Confederate states will probably consider rebelling and so will the neo-nazi's and the white nationalists. TERRIFYING!

    Trump’s actions constitute an abuse of power and a threat to our democracy. Today we have a Republican Senate and Republicans in Congress who are reality deniers and many shrug their shoulders and accede to defeat, whining “there’s nothing we can so why worry about it. Don’t tell me that these things are not your responsibility. Trump is a slimy scumbag AND LOOKING FOR THE NEXT PATSY TO TAKE THE FALL FOR HIM.

    When I see whats going on in our politics, watching all the liars, I weep for the America I once knew. I wonder...For the love of God, what happened to people minds that they would accept a man who is so hateful, so deceitful, a constant liar and a man who goes behind American's back's to ask Foreign countries to give him personal favors.

    Trump’s cancer is uniquely deadly. Trump is Killing America! TRUMP MUST STEP DOWN!

    At issue are Trump's actions with Ukraine. and Trump's betrayal of his oath of office, to our elections and our county. “The President actually said to Nancy Pelosi, ‘Hey, can we do something about this whistle blower complaint, can we work something out.’ SEEMS HE WANTS OTHER PEOPLE TO LIE FOR HIM ONCE AGAIN AND USE PEOPLE LIKE THE PAWNS HE ALREADY HAS.

    His latest abuse of power -- pressuring Ukraine to damage a political opponent and interfere in our 2020 election -- is just the tipping point. It's just been sooo clear for sooo long how utterly lawless trump has been. Criminals always look for compromise. Trump is actually a National disgrace and a disgrace to our nation and democracy. It’s time to come together as a people and take responsibility for our country.

    The chosen one is calling on you to hate Jews, African Americans, Muslim Americans, Mexicans, American Indians, Hondurans, Haitians, Puerto Ricans and others. You can check off Trump's animosity, hostility and malice against persons of race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity or gender as a given. Some Americans believe they can discriminate and despise others and now Trump spews hatred of Jews.

    Jesus was a Jew. What astonishes me is that Jesus has many faces....Black, Brown, Mexican and more. Why do people hate? Do You? Are White people better than others? Seems to me Christians are no longer Christians.

    Trump makes me sick!

    Trump is now holding children in a warehouse without any windows, not providing adequate water or adequate food. Yes, living without sunlight can affect the human body and mind negatively. We are just like plants and other animals who need sun and water to live. Immigrants like sardines in cages with only standing room for a week. I call that sleep deprivation. If a person is deprived of sleep, it can lead to "tremendous emotional problems and the damage is so apparent that it is unethical to coercively deprive someone of sleep.

    It is appalling that Republicans approve of this sadistic treatment of these babies, toddlers and children of all ages. The post about Cortez sucking Trump's dick is horrendous, as well as the posts about wishes for immigrants death.

    Trump and all Republicans are literally imprisoning human beings who are guilty of nothing more than wanting to escape certain death and misery. LONG TERM DETENTION OF CHILDREN IS ILLEGAL AND REPUBLICANS ARE GUILTY OF CHILD ABUSE....add to it kidnapping, discrimination based on ethnicity and illegal imprisonment...they all constitute a crime against humanity. How can Republicans support the horror of American concentration camps, the filth and the suffering, the smell the urine, feces and sweat of the caged people? How can they support Trump who is so cruel?
