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.

Hi Debbie - I just read your story, you could be me. I don't have diabetes, but I do have high blood pressure, edema of the legs and feet and underactive thyroid. I lost 33 and a half lbs since last year, but gained 12 lbs back this year. I think you have just jolted me back into that age old game called weight loss. I had the same feelings of throwing caution to the wind and eating what I want usually eating good all day and eating all the wrong foods at night.And here I go again, doing the same thing again. I need to get back on track and because of your story I think I can. Keep up the good work and I will try to do the same. I added you as a spark friend. emoticon

DEBS, can you believe it I have gained 3 pounds. That is not much bother to me.

BUT my A!C is 6.1 SPARK keeps changing my tracker and mostly they go over 22,000 calories.

My tracker used to be 12,500 to 15,500.and that is what I have to do. I am so ready to give it up but I love the friends, HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
