I'm Debbie and I'm taking it a day at a time

I've been overweight all of my adult life. Getting tired of the yo yoing. In the year 2000 i was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. Turning a deaf ear to the diagnosis i felt "now that i'm taking meds i can eat what I want and not worry aobut the diabetes" How wrong i was. It took an almost fatal accident stemming from a blackout after a 400 blood sugar reading and a fall down a flight of stairs which could haae been much worst in the injury area. I was so lucky. Someone was watching ...

It took an almost fatal accident stemming from a blackout after a 400 blood sugar reading and a fall down a flight of stairs which could haae been much worst in the injury area. I was so lucky. Someone was watching over me. Finally some sense was knocked into my thick head. I've been eating healthy ever since. Not only making healthy choices, i exercise 6 days a week. Since last November I have lost 40 lbs. I enjoy using my sense of humor along the way. It helps burn calories when you laugh. Today i have normal blood sugar readings. I feel good, look good and I'd like to love aobut 40-50 more pounds. I've come this far, I know I can do it. I have faith in myself and Love me more today than i ever have. I'm so glad i was introduced to Spark People by a friend. It really helps to track my food and exercise. I like writing about my feelings, my emotions, my dreams.

Being almost totally Deaf/legally blind has it's drawbacks. But today I am comfortable with myself for who I am. It has not always been this way. It is the main reason for my Emotional eating disorder that triggered Binge Eating normally at night. That is in my past thanks to SparkPeople.

My word Debbie, I just googled Myasthenia Gravis....that is quite something, but thankfully it seems you can live a reasonably happy life with it. You are so cheerful, its hard to imagine you with anything like this at all. Hope you can maintain your cheeriness while fighting this medical issue. Lotsa luv.

Glad you found it. Thought folks were talking about the spark start page to do it. Ad Block Plus does make a big difference. There are times I've had to "allow" a certain page to have the ads to take part in a spark challenge but it doesn't impact the rest of spark.

Hi Debbie Darling, Just stopped by with one of my favorite scriptures.

Heb. 12:2,3, "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds."

Hang in there gal.

Hello Debbie Darling. That is what I say to my fourth DD when I talk to her on the phone. :D Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a kind comment on my 'Elephant' blog. He's still chipping away. Hope you are having a wonderful day.
