I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER! JESUS IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR..GOD IS IN CONTROL ALWAYS.. I DO MY BEST TO ENCOURAGE AND MOTIVATE OTHERS AS WELL AS NEED OTHERS TO MOTIVATE ME AT TIMES-AS I SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION..BUT MY HEALTH HAS GREATLY IMPROVED SINCE I LOST ALL THAT WEIGHT.. BUT I AM STUCK WITH THE DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE AND I DEAL WITH THEM ONE DAY AT A TIME..GOD GIVES ME THE STRENGTH I NEED TO KEEP ON MOVING.. NEVER GIVE UP MY FRIENDS..WE FALL DOWN AND WE GET RIGHT BACK UP..I HAVE KIDNEY DISEASE AND WILL BE STARTING DIALYSIS SOON. :-(


IF I CAN DO IT--YOU COULD DO IT TOO! KEEP THE FAITH.. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF...

I HAVE TO STICK TO MY SMALL TERM GOALS AND BE REALISTIC --SO I DO NOT GET DEPRESSED.. I WANT TO STAY MOTIVATED AND POSITIVE! AND I DO NOT GET OBSESSED WITH THAT SCALE..
OBSESSION LEADS TO FAILURE I BELIEVE..
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATHS....

    Hi SusieQQ,
    You are such an inspiration!! Please come and introduce yourself to our team in our introductory forum.
    It took me a bit of time to get to you, as I am still in the transition stage of working and balancing life.

    I hope you find our team helpful, supportive, and encouraging in maintaining your kidney health.
    emoticon your Kidneys.

    Thanks for your advice, I stuck with the less than 100 carbs a day, or very close to and feel so much better.
