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 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.

    I can relate to your situation. I also have type 2 diabetes for over 20 years. My meds keep increasing and increasing. My doctor wants to put me on the needle, but I freak out and resist. I am starting to feel the effects of diabetes now. I am tired all the time, and my toes go numb often. I know that when I eat well and exercise I do feel better. I do well for about 1 month, then I give up. Maybe we can encourage each other to stay on target. I love your smile by the way. emoticon

    That is what the Dr wants me to do but now he is looking at MG.

    I have no clue why he wants to do that. I am talking to my regular Dr on Monday and he just did lots of blood work so he might discover everything is doing great. Pat and HUGS Pat in Maine.

    Thanks DEB for reading it. I had no recent photos except the ones in my spark photos. I asked if they could use them but they did not. No problem.
    I have been having eye issues since they did my early cataract surgeries so I would be able to help DH.
    The other eye DR an ophthalmologist said he wanted to check my blood work for MG. I doubt it but I am anxious right now. Appt. is Feb 11th.
    I hope you are feeling better. How is LEONE doing with the cold weather this year. Pat in Maine. Stay well. (((HUGS)))
