also if you have a close friend make them your walking/excersize buddy it helps to have support from outside source. remember the weight didnt go on in a day so its not good to take it off in a day! slow and steady one meal at a time ! you can do it , the people at unity are most helpful they can be there as much or as little as you need.

Hi Kathy,
Congratulations on successfully transitioning to a carbohydrate managed meal plan and the reduction in your blood sugars! That's great! It's also wonderful that you are exercising regularly. Both of those things make a big difference in helping to manage your blood sugars. For weight loss it may be important to also be aware of your total dietary/calorie intake in addition to carbohydrates. You want to be sure that you are focusing more on the lean, low-fat protein foods and eating lots of non-starchy vegetables! Also be sure to keep your drinks sugar free and focus primarily on upping your water intake verses drinking alot of the sugar-free drinks and soda made with the sugar substitutes. Sounds like you've done a great job changing your diet to bring down your blood sugars; it might now be helpful to meet with a dietitian to help tailor your current meal plan to promote weight loss too! Don't give up! You are doing great - remember, it's a journey...you will get there!
Kathy
