Welcome! I respectfully say please get very realistic about taking your pre diabetic condition very seriously. Even more important than weight loss itself is the amount and quality of food you eat. Are you willing to gamble with your future ability to participate the way you deeply know you want to with your husband and children? What food could be worth chancing your eyesight, your heart and circulation, including delivering blood to your precious brain? I don't mean to be cruel but people who take it seriously actually CURE themselves of diabetes, not just manage it, with serious lifestyle changes. Pray for the strength to do what is necessary. There will still be plenty of foods in satisfying amounts that you will be able to enjoy. If you have been overeating consistently, you will get the payoff eventually of a vitality that has probably been missing. Even appropriate hunger will become a pleasure. Have faith!

Hi Fiskar, I'm new to this team also. I have all 3 books too. I'm glad you asked which one to read first I because I was wondering the same thing. Welcome and we'll see each other on the page.
Take care. Roween emoticon

emoticon I so agree with Beth and Donna about starting with the 100DWL. I am just finishing my 4th time through and I probably will follow the daily thread again with the next session. I find every time through a little more sticks and regular reinforcement helps me to hold on to good habits much better.

I did not post on the thread much my first time through but I did journal when I was able. I got behind many times but I am so glad that I kept going. If you have the time there is a lot of support and wisdom on the daily threads. Again welcome!

Welcome to the group, its a great place to be xxx

Yes I agree with Beth, I too would read the 100 days first and follow the threads if you want to see other member's ideas.
This is a good thread to find the individual days ...

I've read all three and have read 100 Days 3 times. I suggest starting with Spangle's 100 Days for your first read. You can take each day's topic and work on it for a day (or more if you wish to go through the book at a slower pace).

Hi everyone,

About 5 years ago I lost around 40 lbs on WW. Kept it off for about 2 years... now I weight more than when I started.

I am pre-diabetic, but I can't seem to mentally "get in the game". I know what foods I need to stop eating, or eat less of, but I am mentally weak. I thought of starting WW again but counting again...Ugh. I want to live and not fail again.

I am in my late 40's, have two teenage daughters and a wonderful husband. He does not need to lose weight and is pretty fit.

I do not want to remove all tempting foods from the house as I think that is part of the reason why I have a carb addiction. My parents were very controlling and I rarely got to have sugar cereals, and snacks. My girls are healthy, fit and are not addicted to food like I am. I can stop eating "their" food.... but I need to be stronger all of the time, not some of the time.

I have all three books.... which should I start first?

Thank you all in advance for support and guidance :)
