    I've lost 21 pounds in 4 weeks, so my doc is going to wait to put me on diabetes meds. She thinks I might be able to control my blood sugar with diet. All those low carb recipes I've been posting on HP are working!! Yay!! Of course, the exercising is helping, too. My BP was 110/70. I feel great!

      Fantastic to hear you're feeling better!  Health is priceless, and so often we take it for granted.

    That's great news Habee. You must feel so happy! Keep it up....though are you sure that weight loss is not because of all the nonstop hubbing you do? wink
    Well, you know how I always worry about you...must rest too... and take care x

    That's awesome, Holle!  I wish I could say the same - I've been doing the South Beach Diet for just over 3 weeks and I've lost a whole 3 pounds.  I'm following the guidelines, don't know why the weight is not coming off as it "should" and I'm considering changing to Weight Watchers...

    Are you following a specific diet or plan, or just eating low carb on your own??

      Lily, this is what I eat:

      low carb veggies
      fish, crab, shrimp, scallops, lobster
      Hood low carb chocolate milk
      my low carb bread
      my low carb desserts
      low carb ice cream for an occasional treat

      That's it! I'm also exercising 5 or 6 days a week, mostly in my pool.

      Thanks, pals, for all your support!
