Wake up call is what I needed

It's funny how time changes things. When I was younger I was a diver and ate anything I want. Very little protien and mostly carbs. Now, as I get older, my family history is kicking in.

Last week I was told I was borderline diabetic. What a shock!! Within 18 months my a1c went from normal to borderline. My first reaction was how in the world could this happen to me? I always had low blood sugar now the opposite?

Last week I was told I was borderline diabetic. What a shock!! Within 18 months my a1c went from normal to borderline. My first reaction was how in the world could this happen to me? I always had low blood sugar now the opposite?

After the shock settled down, I took a good look and realized time didn't change on me. I changed myself! No more working out for 5-6 hrs per week (min). I started eating more meat and kept eating the carbs. My body just couldn't handle it. I guess you can say, now I am paying the pipper!

Per MD's orders, I am eating very low carb. I can still eat my fruit and vegs, but no more starchy veg's, pasta or rice. Kind of stinks, but it's working. I'm also shooting for exercise every day. Some day's aerobic other's with bands and balls.

I know if I keep this up, I can get off the med's, feel great and as an added bonus, love the way I look in the mirror!
