Getting Healthy

As of December of 2007, when my last baby was born I was the heaviest I have ever been. I was 250 pounds and I was diagnosed with diabetes. Now mind you I was already anemic and I have trouble with my leg, this scared me. I now have to take my blood sugar several times a day and I am on prescription medicines for a long time (I am not going to say forever because I hope to be off of them someday). At that point I changed my diet and by January of 2009 I was down to 217. My husband signed ...

At that point I changed my diet and by January of 2009 I was down to 217. My husband signed us up for the YMCA in February and we found Spark people. I have been on a downward slope with my weight, my cholesterol levels are all within normal range and my diabetes seems to be within good ranges more and more. I intend to get healthy and to stay healthy.

Hey, I read about your run on your hubby's blog (he's a pretty good writer!) so I scooted on over to high-five you.
I'm inspired by people who take on a challenge like that!

Congratulations on your 5K! Racing is so much fun and racing with your family there is the best.

Hey, congratulations on completing your first 5K. I am toying with the thought and there is one coming up May 1. I am scared that I won't be able to do it and I will look stupid. I know it's probably more of a mental thing, but it's encouraging to hear about you doing your first. How did you feel, how was it? By the way, it's so wonderful to hear that you have been able to get your diabetes under control. I was diagnosed with diabetes at 4 and have been on insulin solely ever since. I live of a insulin pump now for 11 years. I use it for flexibility in my life having 2 young boys. I have had diabetes for 27 years now and thank God that I don't have any signs of complicaitons. It's a daily grind and there are so many factors that effect your readings. Keep up the great work and don't ever let your diabetes defeat you.
