I CAN Prevent Diabetes….my story
It was pointed out to me that diverse populations carry and lose weight differently than the average white Anglo person. They questioned whether this program would work for them I don’t have that answer and since I am not diabetic now I don’t know a lot about carb counting etc. I weighed in at the Prevent Diabetes group and was 206 pounds! I’ve lost 20 pounds in the two months that I’ve been in this educational and supportive group. The facilitator made me feel proud of my accomplishment and I hope that I can be of support, help, and encouragement to others. This is no easy task. Because I weigh less no, my fat gram goal went from 50 to 42, the price to pay for getting thinner! It’s like a treasure hunt to find good foods that have the nutrition (and low fat and calories) that my body needs.
Take care of you! Eat well, read labels, get support, and reap the benefits of your choices and hard work.
