When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10lbs at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96 lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

Update: my cholesterol is now 181 and the HDL is I'm good and life is wonderful!

...yipee...will continue to watch carbs, starch and sodium and move every 20 minutes.

Update: 2017- I continue to educate myself and others with daily posts. I continue to log my foods, starch & cholesterol and watch the charts on Spark people. My A1C is a steady 5.5...maintaining my weight as well....yipee!

2019 My A1C s now 5.4

    Love pierogi! I just found a group of relatives in Poland I didn't know I had with DNA testing.

    Trump's Obamacare replacement bill is an ‘age tax’ on older Americans.....The older you get and the lower your income, the bigger the premium increase you’re going to see. Under the health-care bill, insurers would be allowed to charge 50-60-year old adults up to five times more than younger people. Without Medicare that means the ad on TV says up to $4,000 year as an age tax.

    If you vote for Trump Medicare and social Seruity will cease. What will you do?
    Deplete your savings to live? How will you pay for your meds or an unexpected hospitalization? How will you pay your bills? Will you have to keep working into your 80's and 90's to survive?
    If you get Co-Vid will you be able to afford thousand and thousands of dollars to survive?
    Without Social Security, 21.7 million more Americans would be poor, according to analysis using the March 2019 Current Population Survey. Although most of those whom Social Security keeps out of poverty are elderly, 6.9 million are under age 65, including 1.2 million children.

    A patriot is one who puts their country before themselves and fights to make the country better.

    As for Trump's patriotism, between his disdain for democracy and at least half of his fellow citizens, as well as his penchant for enriching himself with public’s fair to say he flunks that test too. Don't forget how much patriotism he shows every time he insults or swindles a war veteran.

    Trump did admit to illegally misusing the Trump Foundation — in particular the $2.8 million raised for veterans.

    Trump is at the center of a massive fraud against the American people. The sad part is: the more that Trump's voters heard that he was a bully and a con man, the better they liked him.

    He thinks just because he hugged the American flag people will think of him as a patriot...sane people don’t grab a flag and hug it like a person, grinning like a was just another photo op.

    Trump will try to get a vaccine released early just to give his election chances a boost but it will be just another of his schemes that will backfire and fail.

    He will try to claim victory.....but it doesn't matter...the vaccine will need to be produced and because it will take years before the entire American population could be vaccinated Trump once again fails us ( our population is estimated at 331,002,651...don’t expect wide spread distribution!

    I doubt there will be anything like the old normal for years and years to come under Trump. Given the way the whole epidemic has been handled, I don’t have any confidence that a vaccine will be distributed in an organized and rational, much less a fair manner
