Has anyone every said that being diagnosed with Diabetes is one of the best things that could happen to them? Probably not many....but in my case, it's the truth! As a 45 year old I was diagnosed on December 1, 2009. With my doctor, we've been working on getting my weight down and my blood sugar under control. I'm feeling better and better every day! I don't get as sick any more, I can move easier, I can breathe easier and for the first time in I don't even know how many years, I don't need to wear a seat belt extender in the car!
My husband of 27 years and my daughter and grandson are proud of me....so am I.
I'm looking forward to many many more years of a healthy, active life.
Lose 70+ more pounds (I've already gotten rid of 50!)
Be able to keep up with my husband when we walk. (update, he sometimes has a hard time keeping up with me now!)
Eat healthier and keep my blood sugars down (update: blood sugars are under control 99% of the time!)
I'm changing my eating habits, eating less fast food, more fruits and veggies, cutting down on the processed food.
Walking every day, plus other exercises as I find ones that I like
I am 46 years old, married for 27 years, one daughter (married) who has one son that just turned a year old. I love living in Colorado Springs and enjoy our life here.
I love to read, watch movies, quilt and cook. Just lately I've become fond of taking early morning walks!

My Christmas Wish For You
My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun
I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer
May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought
May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold
I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..
(Poet – anonymous)
Have a Merry Christmas.
