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!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

Update: my cholesterol is now 181 and the HDL is 51...so I'm good and life is wonderful!

...yipee...will continue to watch carbs, starch and sodium and move every 20 minutes.

Update: 2017- I continue to educate myself and others with daily posts. I continue to log my foods, starch & cholesterol and watch the charts on Spark people. My A1C is a steady 5.5...maintaining my weight as well....yipee!

2019 My A1C s now 5.4

    MCCONNELL SAID "Think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that is going to pass."
    McConnell IS the Grim Reaper for our democracy, our country, our freedoms, and our planet. As he blocks legislation it is almost like McConnell is saying death to our country. He will stop progress at every turn. McConnell seems to want our country to stare death in the face so only the wealthy will survive.

    I agree with you, Where is the punishment for the male? This is a typical response for the Repubs. Blame it on somebody else, our Person in the White House is a leading example. emoticon

    A bill recently introduced in Texas would make it possible for women to get the death penalty for having abortions. Rep. Tony Tinderholt, a Republican state legislator a Republican state legislator who introduced the bill, says it would make people “consider the repercussions” of having sex.
    “My bill simply accomplishes one goal,” Tinderholt said in a statement to media on Wednesday. “It brings equal treatment for unborn human beings under the law
    IF REPUBLICAN MEN NOW WANT TO GIVE A WOMAN THE DEATH PENALTY, WHERE IS THE EQUAL TREATMENT FOR THE PARTICIPATING MAN?
    The bill would criminalize all abortions, with no exceptions for rape or incest, and would make it possible to charge a woman with homicide for having the procedure, according to the Washington PosT
    Republicans do not hold fathers responsible for support or medical or even performing intercourse. Seems to me if a woman can be sentenced to death the man participating should also be sentenced to death.

    16 HOUR WAIT TO GET THROUGH THE CARGO LANE BORDER FOR TRUCKERS TO DELIVER GOODS TO THE UNITED STATES. NOW TRUMP IS HURTING TRUCKERS,AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS, PARTS & SUPPLIES, & MANUFACTURING FIRMS.
    HIS THREAT TO PUT EVEN MORE TARIFF'S ON AUTOMOBILES IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE AND COULD CARE LESS AMERICANS WOULD HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR VEHICLES.
    THAT MAN KEEPS THROWING GRENADES TO BLOW UP OUR ECONOMY! AS LONG AS HE FILLS HIS POCKETS HE HAS NO INTEREST IN HELPING AMERICANS.
    Seema Verma claimed Medicare and Medicaid were unaffordable and should be cut, when she was using our money to promote her image. She is wasting our tax payer dollars and of course a Republican! WHY AREN'T YOU CALLING YOUR SENATE AND CONGRESS REPS FOR AN INVESTIGATION AND REIMBURSEMENT OF OUR MONEY?

    IF TRUMP CLOSES THE BORDER IT WILL STOP ALL TRADE BETWEEN MEXICO AND THE US! TRUMP CLAIMS THE BORDER WILL BE SHUT DOWN FOR A VERY LONG TIME... THE ECONOMIC DAMAGE WILL BE SO GREAT WE MAY NEVER RECOVER.
    JOBS WILL BE LOST; TRUCKERS, SHIPPERS, AND IMPORTERS TO NAME A FEW. TOURISM WILL ALSO SUFFER, CRUISE LINES, HOTELS, AIRLINES. MEXICO TO THE US TRAVEL WILL DIMINISH AND COST US BILLIONS. FORGET ABOUT ANY VACATIONS TO MEXICO AS WELL.

    WHAT A SPECTACULAR DISPLAY OF TRUMP'S IDIOCY. WE ARE TRUMP'S PAWNS IN THE GAME HE IS PLAYING WITH OUR LIVES. UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS WILL SKYROCKET AND STRAIN OUR COUNTRY EVEN MORE SO. . AS THE GOP APPLAUDS THIS BEHAVIOR, WE ARE SINKING INTO DESPAIR, HUNGER, JOBLESSNESS AND INCREASED ANGER. THE MAYHEM THIS WILL CAUSE IS PROOF THAT TRUMP KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT ECONOMIC PRINCIPLES. . TRUMP IS A THREAT TO OUR COUNTRY WITH HIS DESTRUCTIVE EFFORTS AGAINST AMERICAN AND AMERICANS.

    KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE AN IMMEDIATE EFFECT ON THE AUTO INDUSTRY, AIRCRAFT AND AIRCRAFT PARTS, PRODUCE IMPORTS, ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER MACHINERY, MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS AND PARTS, PHONE EQUIPMENT, APPLIANCES LIKE REFRIGERATORS AND A/C'S, AND CRUDE OIL ARE JUST SOME. WHAT WE IMPORT TO MEXICO WILL ALSO BE IN JEOPARDY.

    WAIT UNTIL THE FULL IMPACT IS FELT. THE GROWTH HYPE IS JUST THAT! IF YOU THINK TRUMP'S ISOLATION POLICIES WILL HELP AMERICA YOU ARE WRONG! THE ECONOMY DOES NOT OPERATE IN ISOLATION. MAYBE YOU NEED TO TAKE A CLASS IN ECONOMICS AND STOP THE STUPIDITY. THE ECONOMY DOES NOT OPERATE IN ISOLATION.
