Difficulty is opportunity in disguise.

Experienced some sizable weight loss using SP. However a challenge was just around the corner. I was getting very thirsty. Short story I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2, even though it is not prevalent in my family. Now I am taking meds and utilizing SP programs to monitor nutrition and exercise. I have evolved with SP to just lose weight, now I try to manage my D2 condition. Just balancing more balls in the air now. God bless all SP colleagues with their individual challenges and comfort in ...

Thank you for commenting on my blog, "Hot time, summer in the city." I was using a one touch mine glucose meter and paying over $150 for 100 test strips and lancets at CVS pharmacy.

I heard about the Relion glucose meter on TV, it is sold at Walmart. The test strips and lancets are about half the price for it. I am anxious to start saving money by using it. You would think since diabetes is a silent killer, that the medical community would want to make using a meter less costly.

My husband will be retiring, be the Lord Willing, August 1st. I have heard people say that the elderly have to decide between their medicine and food and now that I am elderly, I believe that to be true.

I wish you well in the treatment of your diabetes and good health to you.

You know, I get so wrapped up in the struggle to reach the goal line that I forget to simply live the journey. My goal for summer 2015 is to simply live it; to keep moving forward, even if I stumble along the way. It is the lifestyle I want, to walk the road with faithful fervor. So I am going to focus on simply living it.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
(Psalm 37)

We can do it!

emoticon Thanks for stopping by my Thursday blog and leaving your thoughtful comments. All those churches you can see from the bay are the reason Charleston is called the "Holy City." Our faith is strong. We've made it through hurricanes and a variety of other challenging events. We came out better and stronger after Hurricane Hugo. I expect we will rally and rise up from this. Prayers appreciated.
