  • So I have a question. I have a lot of diabetes in my family and I try my best to get in the habit of eating healthy now and try to keep my weight down, but like you, I had complications after my last child. I hear a lot of similarities with what you have been through with your weight journey and what I've worked through myself. My question is, do you have issues/sensitivities to sodium? I seem to and I'm not sure why. I do get hypoglycemic but I try my best to remember to eat something.

  • Deanna Dill says:

    What's in your "stash" foods, cause the hardest thing for me is when I'm cooking fryed chicken for the family and my stash is salad or a smoothie 😥

  • LadyKacij says:

    Great job!!!! I'm also on my weight lost journey!!! Thank you for the encouragement!😉

  • Jessica Abel says:

    Thank you. Great advice and amazing. Good figures to know. Inever have found numbers that i could follow and how simple is that? 45 max carbs per meal! I missed it but for your snacks how much carbs. I am going to try this.

  • Deborah Cutler says:

    Congratulations Thank God.

  • Deborah Cutler says:

    Thank you. I needed to hear all this. ☺

  • priscilla shaw says:

    I wish i could eat 45 carbs. I blow up like a balloon if i go over 10g per day. What a encouraging video. I totally agree that people are very quick to judge people on their weight. Drives me bananas. I have hashimotos and loosing weight with it is no cake walk. I have to excerise 3 times a week. Do keto and fast daily to loose .5lbs in a week. If i change anything i gain. Im so happy for you! What awesome progress!

  • Brenda Berry says:

    Congratulations!

  • Gee Gee Palmore says:

    I am praising God for your health. This is very inspiring because i am going through my on health problems. Thank Tully for sharing.

  • Ajene Gailliard says:

    Thanks for sharing. This is encouraging. I too struggled with Hypoglycemia most of my life, but was never given a diabetes diagnosis. I was misdiagnosed with PCOS which is typically caused by insulin resistance. Quitting sugar helped me to turn things around. Have you ever heard of Trim Healthy Mama?

  • Creating Essence says:

    Food journal- YES! It brings to light so much we don't realize!!! Your self control and commitment to good health is so inspiring and encouraging. Thank you so much for sharing your journey.

  • AMEN Homeschoolers says:

    How many carbs can you have for a snack and do you have snack ideas? Thanks and great job!!!

  • Four kids on your own… you are a power house!

  • Thanks for this video! 😁 You should look into Trim Healthy Mama. It's a life changer. It's a way of eating that is based around controlling blood sugar. It's amazing, and easy to follow once you get the basics.. 😊

  • Josie Sowers says:

    I WAS listening to you, then I got distracted by the adorableness of Nathan and Aiden interacting. So sweet to see the bond between those two.

    Would love to see more healthy eating/lifestyle videos, as well!

  • Lindsay Hill says:

    Can I ask did did you have issues with being severely fatigued ? I love this video I have found a lot inspiration in this video . I am overweight and really need to get it together to make things I want. In life to happen 😀.

  • Gabriela Urch says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your story!

  • Raymes Guzman says:

    I'm so happy for you that your A1C numbers are down. Diabetes is something that I worry a lot about because it runs on my mom side & my dad had it & because his adopted we don't know if it runs on his side. So Everytime I take my prediabetic screening & it comes back clear it's a today blessing. Love your videos♥️ God bless can't wait to see your next one♥️😊

  • stephanie turpen says:

    If you ever have time can you do a video to show what your family eats at meals and then what you eat so we can get ideas.

  • MrsKerri4u says:

    God is great! He does wonders…all you have to do is trust and believe that he changes things around. Yes!!! You look great!

  • BrownArrowsHomeschooling says:

    Your journey is incredible and encouraging. I topped out at my highest weight in 2017 and it wasn’t coming off. I wasn’t eating much, either. I wasn’t able to do much physically/ longevity-wise. My body would shut down midday. If I didn’t snack I’d get light-headed. I definitely think 🤔 something was wrong. But I don’t frequent the doctors 🤗😂After my family moved, I began switching my family’s food away from processed foods and taking in much more water and produce. I did no exercise, just ate better. And I’ve dropped 40lbs.

  • You look fantastic Erica! You have worked hard! Praise the Lord!

  • The Retro Housewife912 says:

    I love the food diary idea. I need to start doing that with my sodium watch. Congrats on all the weight loss and keeping with it. I get frustrated when you hit that rough patch.

  • Liza Suarez says:

    Great information! There are various reasons behind diabetes and weight loss association, to understand the facts and weight loss occurrence you need explore more into the deep. I read Diabetes and Weight Loss – Are They Connected? at zovon. But I feel the video has explained the issue in a great way.

  • keshabeshafopesha says:

    Hello! Thank you for your video! I was looking for videos on YT regarding weight loss for diabetics and came across yours and it was VERY helpful. I believe God that I will get to the point of not needing insulin. I could go on and on, but just wanted to let you know your video helped me and I would LOVE to see more on your journey. Thank you!

  • Sherri Chamberlain says:

    Loved your video and you!❤🙏

  • Inthefuture says:

    That's amazing and inspiring. Congrats!

  • Beautiful family 🙂

  • Shell Bell says:

    This video is so realistic and encouraging!!!! Thank you!

  • Thank you are so motivating and encouraging. I’m at a pre-diabetic place. Thank you I’m going to use some of you examples here.

  • Carol Hunter Slater says:
