Thank you Louise as you could not have said it better. I know that when I was diagnosed with type II, I was in deniel. Then I thought about how I felt, what was going on with my body, and my wieght. It has been a real eye opener. Now I toe the line and am dropping weight every week. I feel 100% better and smarter beacuase I read all the labels and realized that I was eating things I thought were healthy, but were not. I never drank soda, never used salt, or put sugar in my coffee or tea, but some of the crap I was eating was putting tons of that stuff into my body. I am a wonderful cook and enjoy making things that I like healthy so I have turned what could have been overwhelming and bad experience into a good one and I am doing one day at a time.View Thread
Great! I'm not 16, but wanted a nice braclet too. I found a lovely crystal bead one at walmart on line at a fraction of the cost at other sites specializing in these bracelets. Walmart's engraving service was a 3 day turnaround via first class mail.View Thread
Look at all the "light", "smart", and "healthy" frozen food entrees as the sodium and carbs totals are very high. You may think that these entrees are convenient and healthy, but they are packed with fat and carbs you don't need and once eaten, you don't feel full. I find that if I plan ahead and pre-make most of my meals eaten outside the home, the fat, carb, and sodium levels are manageable. A portion of grilled/broiled haddock/cod is only 93 calories, no fat and no carbs. Add two cups of field green mixed salad, a spray of good vinegar, a small whole wheat roll, and a piece of fresh fruit and you are eating healthier than ever. You will find yourself satisfied and save a lot money.
Not making time for you is never a good excuse. Been there, done that, through with it! View Thread
