Hi, Jenn! Thanks for the welcome back.

Glad you're getting your blood sugar back on track. I should have known (but didn't until recently) that keeping blood sugar stable throughout the day will also aid in weight loss. Makes sense since excess blood sugar can get stored as fat--which is the primary reason for my obesity. I think that's a pretty accurate statement, even though I do admit to an occasional binge. So many people think all obesity is caused by eating like pigs all the time.

I've heard that cellulitis is awfully painful as well as dangerous. Is your Mom OK now? I understand the difficulty of your staying on track with diet when family issues are pressing.

The middle of February is a decent amount of time to get your numbers back on track. I'll bet you'll make good progress.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
