March Goals!!

Alright folks, I haven't quite received everyone's records, but it's close enough so I am going to post the goals for March.

Now, this might get a little confusing so read carefully:


Weight Loss Group: Lose a minimum of 10% of your goal. That is, if you want to lose 20 pounds, you lose 2 pounds. This is a minimum. I recorded how much you are planning to lose, so I know what your individual goals are. If you aren't sure how much you signed up for, please email me.

A1C Group: 14-day average blood sugar of 170 mg/dl with no more than 7 blood sugars over 300 mg/dl.


Weight Loss Group: Diabetes Burnout by Dr. William Polonsky
A1C Group: Knowing Your Numbers by Amy Tenderich

Pretty cool, huh?

Check-In Schedule:
Write these down!

Sunday, February 19
Sunday, March 5

The February 19 date does not have a corresponding drawing. The purpose is for accountability. A1C Group: The maximum 7 blood sugars over 300 mg/dl applies to the second half of the month (February 20-March 5), not the entire month.

Please, please send them to me on time! Don't send them to me early and definitely don't send them to me late.

New Prizes and Guests:

Keep your eyes on this site... Doug Burns, fitness expert and this year's Mr. Universe, is going to be a consultant for the Challenge. He'll be stopping by to offer advice and words of encouragement!

Keep sending in your tips and questions!

New prizes include a gift certificate for a medical ID bracelet from Monsoon Artisans (thanks Beth!), a diabetes messanger bag from Adorn (thanks Kelly!), and three glucose meters, an AccuCheck Aviva, Freestyle Freedom and Freestyle Flash (thanks Sara!).

Awesome! I don't know about you, but I'm excited...

I'm sure you all figured this out, but just to confirm the meters are brand new. They were donated by my endo. Just didn't want you to think I was passing off my old meters :)

I'm excited too!

Maybe I can get my shit together this time around?!

For clarification - it is counter productive for said participant (that means me) to actually GAIN weight when the stated objective was to lose weight.

With the help of my dietitian, and our ever so caring and strict OCNMC Administrator - it will happen. I will be good, and I will do good.

Let's get ready to rumble!!

Counterproductive to gain weight? Uh. Yes.


I really appreciate the donations!
