I have lost so far a total of 7 lbs using the Just Dance 2 game on the Nintendo Wii and I am very grateful for the supportive feedback that I am receiving here on DC. I have also purchased another game from the Just Dance series called simply Just Dance. Since starting both the Just Dance & Just Dance 2 game, I have felt even happier and healthier than before- I still have a lot of work to be done, but I know that I can do it because I love myself and what I have achieved thus far. My fiance is especially proud that I have lost so much weight- already he is able to wrap his arms around me and before he was not able to do that! I have yet to try Zumba but it does look like fun and I want to thank my friends for their encouragement and inspiration for me to try it! I am eating more fruits and vegetables now- although oranges are one of my favorite fruits, I have to be careful because they have a lot of sugar in them even though it is just natural sugar. But another important fact that I learned about oranges is that they naturally clean your breath, plus they're a good source of Vitamin C as well!! More updates will be posted later on- for now I am very proud of what I have accomplished so far and I hope to continue on with my gradual but promising success. My current weight should be 150 lbs which means that I am 89 lbs overweight. But with a gradual weight loss, a steady flow of 45-60 minutes of exercise 3-5 times/week, a balanced diet, taking my meds as prescribed, seeing my doctor regularly for my diabetes, keeping a healthy sound mind and body, drinking plenty of water and having the immensely appreciative and encouraging support from my fiance & my friends here @ Diabetic Connect, I can be able to achieve my goal and make my life worth living for- but today I do have so much to live for. It also doesn't hurt to treat yourself here and there- my favorite indulgences are dark chocolate, lemon or green tea with lemon juice and a touch of honey, and graham crackers with peanut butter and bananas in between, served with an ice cold glass of 1% milk! Thank you for all of your constant support and to all my friends here @ Diabetic Connect- have a safe happy and blessed day!
