  We had our first nutrition class today, and was encouraged today to learn that we have to watch callorie consumption but we are encouraged to look at portions and do carb/ fat / protien counting.  As a nurse with frequent diabetic patients, I am familiar with carb counting.  It had been about 2 years ago that I was put on Glucophage for high insulin levels but I was never told to take a diabetic class just decrease my amount of sugar intake, so I was  able to coast along in blissful ignorance as to how many carbs and sugars I was really taking in.  This challenge now has me being accountable for all that.
   Not to mention the accountability of now having friends, family and even CO-WORKERS knowing that I am part of the 100 day Heart Challenge, and will be watching and hopefully asking about the changes I am triing to make.
