On Wednesday, I went to Weight Watchers for my weekly weigh-in and learned I dropped 1.8 pounds! I'm officially out of the 200 pound range, woo-hoo! Now let's make sure I stay out for good!

Oh yeah, I'm fitting into my size 10s once again and I'm down to my last notch on my belt. Hopefully if all goes well, I'll be fitting into my size 6s again by May.

Congrats, Pearl! Keep up the good work!

So I've finally been able to see doctors since I've been able to get health insurance and after several visits and a myriad of tests of which results are beginning to trickle in now I've learned I am Pre Diabetic, I need some kidney tests re-done, I need to take some weight loss/nutrition classes (which the medical center offers it's members) and need exercise. I am also deficient in Vitamin D so need hefty doses of supplements and a re-check in 3 months time. Hope that helps with the osteoarthritis, bone issues and DISH disease I have going on in my back. So I'm turning a new leaf. I began seeing a Physical Therapist who prescribed a TENS machine to stimulate nerves when joints swell and affect my nerves, and we are working on some exercises and therapies to bring relief there. I will do some gentle yoga, stretching and water aerobics and hydrotherapy. Along with eating even better by changing the diet I am hoping to be feeling better and soon. I will have to come in here periodically to share how my journey is going.

Thanks Carek!

Sorry to hear about you being Pre Diabetic. One of the reasons why I got serious about losing weight is because diabetes runs in my family and I certainly wouldn't want it.

Have you tried Weight Watchers? It's great! One of my friends lost 40 pounds on it and another friend is dropping weight like hot cakes with their diet plan.

Good luck with your journey!

Thanks. My family carries diabetes on both sides. Mid age catches up with us. I at least have health insurance and feel I've chosen some good doctors so this should help. I've not tried Weight Watchers for many years but it was successful for me. I've heard very good things about the current program and may consider it. My medical center offers a discount for Weight Watchers!

Two programs at work are starting up next week to definitely help me along in the right direction

1) A team Biggest Loser competition
2) A walking competition, the grand prize of which is a trip to the destination we are "walking to"

And I'm down to 176!

That's awesome! Keep up the good work! I've lost 41lbs in 7 mos cutting sodium, refined sugar, no sodas, portion control & gluten free. It takes meal planning, disciplin & lots of will power.
