Debra, hang here for as long as you want. I CAN'T WAIT to join you on the maintenance threads!
Unfortunately I'm still work in progress... Tho it seems my continuation of maintenance is apparent. Stayed at 145 again. I did, however, start some weight training tonite. Hoping the claims that it can reboost metabolism is true. I'm not giving up. I am almost there. It's a struggle being diabetic while trying to lose weight. There's a delicate balance. I can't just go to bed hungry, without fears of low blood sugars and the shakes in the middle of the night. Burn off 400 calories with exercise, and then my body tells me to eat 200 calories because my blood test tells me I have to. So for me, the goal 5 pounds away will be so very very sweet!
Pam, good luck with the new food choices. Let us know how it goes, if it's been an easy transition or not. I've been able to switch to mostly whole grains in my diet, but eliminating dairy I think would be very painful!
Have a great week, ladies!!!
