Well I am excited today.  Last night at aquacise class I spent most of my time trying to keep the bottoms of my swimsuit from falling off and the top from floating up to flash the world Surprised  I am attributing most of that to the swimsuit losing its elasticity. 


This morning I dug out my size 22 speedo that I haven't been able to wear because it was uncomfortably tight....voila it now fits.  I haven't weighed for about 6 weeks and don't plan on weighing until the end of August.....just going to keep doing what I am doing and not stressing about the weight.  My BG numbers are doing well and that is my main focus.

Congratulations!!! HAPPY DANCE!!! That is wonderful. So proud of you!!!Laughing

Hello. My name is Debbie, I'm new to dLife and I enjoy meeting new people. My starting weight back in May was 251 and now I'm down to 236. I'm watching more closely what I eat, and I'm exercising and going on walks more often now. I'll be going to my first appointment with a dietician soon and I'm looking forward to that. I love fresh fruits and vegetables, and I've been reading the nutritional values on foods more carefully now than before. I welcome all advice and ideas, please feel free to post. I'm curious about one thing that a neighbor of mine told me. She adds a slice of lemon to water everyday and says it's healthy. Any ideas or comments? I never heard of it before. Thanks in advance and have a great day.





Welcome. Sorry I wasn't here earlier...but, I was on vacation. Great to have you with us!!


I use lemon in my water. My grandmother did it as I was growing up. She said it helped with digestion. In addition, I find that lemon water helps with the bloating, and water retention that we women get.


I also like the taste.


Be warned, however, lemon juice can be corrosive pn your teeth. There are toothpastes out there now to help with this, so be sure to use them, or brush often if you do choose to use lemons/lemon juice

Thanks for the kind words.  The biggest part of the problem with the old suit is that the elasticity went out of it. Being a practical sort I returned it for a new swinsuit that I will use for swimming when i want a pretty suit.  The Speedo, though not very pretty, is made of fabric that is built to withstand the chlorine of pools.  It did fell good to put it on and actually be able to breath!

Gee Faith, It must be wonderful to know that all the physical work and diet work has paid off to the point where you had a problem in the pool.  You must have lost a lot of weight and did a lot of toning up.  Maybe you should keep this suit to encourage you and to show later when you have reached your goal to show how far you came.  I am very impressed.

I am so glad that you have joined us.  Congratulations on making lifestyle changes.  I am sure that you feel great and it will only get better as you enjoy more of the positive changes.


I was diagnosed 10 months ago.  I have made drastic lifestyle changes and feel good about the results!  I enjoy swimming, aquacise and being outdoors.  I love to garden and enjoy all the fresh produce.


We hope to see you on the boards often

Hi,Debbie47! Welcome to the group. I have been away for several weeks but am back. I do think exercise is such an important part of weight loss. Congratulations on what you have lost. I do water aerobics, walk,and garden. I am enjoying the bounty of fresh herbs and vegetables. More later!
