HI, I'm working on weight loss too. Not only so that I can be a better rider, and have more fun with the kids, but also because Diabetes runs in my family. My doctor says I am having pre-diabetic readings but if I take action now, I can change the course of things for the better.
Being a stay at home mom of an autistic toddler, I don't have a lot of "me" time, and when I do it is spent with Cinny. I work out at home when I and wear a "fitbit" to help keep my food in proportion to my activity, which my doctor recomended. If you don't know what a fitbit is, you can see it here. Fitbit
I just have to take it off when I ride and log my rides separately because it counts every one of Cinny's steps LOL.
My doctor is currently managing my diet. I can basically eat whatever I want as long as I stay within a low glycemic index. Basically for each day when my meals are totaled up they need to be 50-55% carb, 20% fat and 25-30% protein. I am bad at math but the fitbit website gives me running percentages LOL.
The weight is slowly coming off, I'm feeling great, and my glucose readings are leveling back out. But it's really hard because my husband isn't exactly the healthiest of eaters so we always have junk in our house...frozen pizzas, frozen burritos, cola, waffles, candy, chips :( I really need some friendly support!
