My New Journey Begins... Today!

This is what I currently look like...  but hopefully in a few months I will look different.  See... I've started a new weight loss program, and I am extremely psyched about it.  I'm hoping to lose 60 pounds and get back to the weight that I was at when I got married 17 years ago.

Over the years, I've gained the weight, by having babies, by losing babies, stress eating, and I am definitely an emotional eater.  I also eat potato chips (Pringles to be exact) at "certain" times of the month.

I just can't stress enough, how excited I am to be on this program.  The program is the CTS300 which is sold at Complete Nutrition.  I am in no way tied to the company other than being a customer who is excited to be on their program.  Now I won't lie, this is an expensive program to be on, but if I can lose the 60 pounds, my doctor has told me she would take me off of my diabetes medication.  What more motivation do I need than that?!

SO...  I will post one picture a month to show my progress and hopefully over time my weight loss will be noticeable. 

Oh... and I am happy to say that on Tuesday I will have a guest blogger, who happens to be a very good friend of mine and who also started her fitness program on the same day as I.  We will be guest blogging once a month until we reach our goals. 

I hope you are as excited as I am to be starting this journey to wellness!

Until next time...


  1. Any change in your diabetes medication should depend on your blood sugar control, not on your weight. I've been type 1 for over 40 years, but I know lots of type 2's through insulin-pumpers, and most of us would fire a doctor who made a promise like that. Weight loss should help you control your blood sugar, and this may allow you to quit medication and will certainly be good for you, but it is a hope, not a promise.

    1. I understand what you are saying and I did not become a diabetic until I reached 200 pounds, once I hit that mark, my sugar levels were uncontrolled. Now my A1C is a 6.5 and has been for 2 years. I am addicted to fast food, so part of my new journey is to get rid of the fast food urge and cook more at home. I am looking forward to quitting my metformin because it upsets my stomach, and glipizide causes me to crash, so my motivation to lose the weight is to get off the metformin and be able to control my sugar level with the way I eat rather than by pills.
