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

I'm Denise, age 52 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 52 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.

Have and maintain an A1c under 6.0

I just love your idea about making the envelopes! I bet people love to get letters from you, I know i would! I found a kit of a bunch of card making supplies on Ebay and ordered that, so hopefully it will have everything I need!

Hope you're having a great Thursday!
