One Full Week

It is official - I have been on the HMR program for one week.
In this week I have already see my overall health improving. I
have reduced my insulin intake by 1/3 and my blood sugar levels
are staying much closer to normal than ever before.

Last night was one of my first big challenges. In my house church
we have always used the first Tuesday night of each month to
have dinner together. I have always enjoyed this activity because
of the fellowship with my friends, but also for the delicious food
everyone brings. Well, last night was the first Tuesday night this
month and I wasn't sure how that would affect me. However, I have
a wonder inspiration, named Brad, who has been on this same program
since last November and Brad is in my housechurch group. I know
this program has great things in store for me because Monday I
received a call from Brad wanting to "plan our strategy" for Tuesday
night. WOW!!! was that a relief. Just knowing someone else was facing
the same challenges and was thinking ahead to build a strategy was
so encouraging. Brad I think you are my Hero!!! Anyway, Tuesday
night fellowship was GREAT. I took my HMR food and honestly enjoyed
eating and visiting with my wonderful friends. Thanks guys!

This morning I woke up early and was able to ride my bike for 30
minutes instead of just 20. The last 4-5 minutes were hard, but
I made it.
Thanks everyone for the comments and encouraging words.

You did great last night Debbie, and success builds on success! The more you face it and win the more confidence you have that you can do it, and I know you can do it!!

Go Debbie go! Brad told me about your blog and about your HMR commitment. Sounds like you are already feeling the benefits. Just wanted you to know we are pulling for you. Glad you have a great "coach" like Brad to encourage you on. Will look forward to seeing your reports. We love you! Jimmy and Ann

I'm trying this again. Debbie, you rock! Seven pounds in 6 days! I'm so glad I get to be a part of your transformation, too. Call me any afternoon that you are on the bike and bored.
Love you,
Carolyn
