It has been 2 weeks ago today since my doctor gave me 2 months to shed some pounds and to get moving, or I will be put on meds. It hasn`t been easy but I have been doing my best. lots of water and i have been on a tomatoe sandwich kick. been feeling a lot better already and think I have lost a couple of pounds. i feel like it anyway. You all have great info: you post so lets keep posting our ideas. Also I love greek yogurt with chopped up tomatoes & cucumbers as a dip for my veggies.
thank You all

I wish doctors would stop using the threat of medication or insulin as some kind of punishment. If meds are needed they are needed for control. Remember that the key to your success won't come from tomatoes and water alone. Make sure to eat less food more often, to exercise as much as you can, to drink water, to substitute healthy choices to unhealthier ones, to take and make time for you to relax and celebrate, to reduce carbs and fats and increase protein but to do it all in moderation. You'll get where you want to be and we are right by your side. Think of me as a cheerleader (but not in the skirt and without the pom poms).
Good Going, Kiddo!!!

Ohhh, tomatoe sandwiches. Those are great. I also like cucumber sandwiches. Both are nice with a big slice of sweet onion as well. Veggie sandwiches are some of the best things we can do for ourselves. Focus on your levels and you will be amazed at how the pounds drop off. I lost 60 pounds without even really "working" on it. You will do great!

Me too, I like miracle whip. But there is a new Hellmans with citrus that is great. I just can't find it. My store had it one time and it's gone. So I use the one made with olive oil.

I certainly agree!! Freash veggies and veggie sandwiches on healthy breads are terrific and filling!! They help keep both your levels in a good range and bowels regular (lol). Keep up the great work and keep your money for shopping I say from all the 'diet' fads and facilities to burn calories when you can do it at home. Now it's fun especially with a friend and the group thing sometimes works for some; but, if you can will power it on your own-go for it and save. Congrats and keep it up gurl!!

it is a great dip for veggies. I supose you can chop fruit up with the yogurt as a desert and dip some fresh fruit in it. try it
