I can do this!

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” ~~ Thomas Edison

I'm Denise, age 51 and divorced, and I live in east Texas.

In March of 2000 I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 and after years of struggling with insulin, much difficulty controlling blood sugar, and weight loss/gain, in May of 2011 I finally learned I actually have Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults or LADA. It's Type 1 of adulthood and is sometimes called Diabetes Type 1.5.

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” ~~ Thomas Edison

I'm Denise, age 51 and divorced, and I live in east Texas.

In March of 2000 I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 and after years of struggling with insulin, much difficulty controlling blood sugar, and weight loss/gain, in May of 2011 I finally learned I actually have Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults or LADA. It's Type 1 of adulthood and is sometimes called Diabetes Type 1.5.

In September of 2011 I got an insulin pump with which I have a love/hate relationship. It allows me the freedom to eat a more 'normal' diet than I used to but it also makes poor dietary habits and insulin abuse way too easy. For me, those equal weight gain.

I eat a moderate carb diet, heavy on low carb vegetables and light on grains, fruit, and meat. My last A1c was 6.5 and while that's good and considered "controlled", I'd like to once again be in the Under 6 club.

I need to exercise more and I know it. I have Walk Away the Pounds DVDs and a lovely walking trail across the road from my home but do I go there? Rarely!

Cooking is one of my passions and I share some of my favorite recipes here:

If you're diabetic or would just like an exercise or food buddy, contact me. I'd love to hear from you!

Goals:

Walk on the lovely trail across from my home for at least 30 minutes three times a week and do Walk Away the Pounds for at least 30 minutes on the other days.

Lose 45 to 50 pounds before September 30 of 2014

Have and maintain an A1c under 6.0

A Spark friend, Gaylinn, sent me a reminder that this time on planet Earth comes around only once & that we should enjoy it. I believe that a worthy reminder for us all --- the days fly by & why waste them by not enjoying the blessings our Creator fills them with?

I sure do hope & pray that we both make our time here count in ways that have far reaching results.

God bless you, as you determine to enjoy the minutes of this day!
