I have more energy, and I haven't had one of those fatigue attacks where my eyes roll up in my head since I have been on the Metformin XR. I didn't expect to be successful with it, bought it with trepidation, but the 4 bucks paid off. I have lost about 8 pounds now, am walking and exercising daily.

I want my old self back. I know others know what I mean when I say this.

I hope my cholesterol goes down. I am eating like a cave man. Fish, blueberries, nuts, tons of vegetables of all kinds, eggs, tofu, beans.

I am glad for this group.
I am glad I have a job right now, even though there are weird parts to it.

I hope my life gets better, and better is always relative, when one has had bad things, we are grateful for the good.

I hope the economy turns around and we get manufacturing back in this nation.

Thanks Debb! I am exercising and walking daily. I have only lost few pounds, and it is very frustrating, but I am keeping with it. I believe that a big weight loss will definitely improve my situation. I just need a few months with Man vs. Wild to get lean, just kidding. But I am eating very low on the food chain. If I get hungry, I eat a few nuts.
Hope things are going well for you!!
