I'm a 48 yo type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed about 10 yrs ago. In the past, I have been able to manage it through diet and oral meds. Slowly my weight has been creeping up and so have my A1c's. Suddenly, I found myself on diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure meds and my doctor was talking to me about starting on insulin.

That's when I decided I'd had enough and I wanted my life and body back. I've always been a very active person and I love doing things outdoors. ...
I'm a 48 yo type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed about 10 yrs ago. In the past, I have been able to manage it through diet and oral meds. Slowly my weight has been creeping up and so have my A1c's. Suddenly, I found myself on diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure meds and my doctor was talking to me about starting on insulin.

That's when I decided I'd had enough and I wanted my life and body back. I've always been a very active person and I love doing things outdoors. Somehow, as I gained more weight and got out of shape, I stopped doing many of the things I love.

I am determined to reclaim it all back. I know that I can't do it by diet alone, so I have joined a gym and set several fitness goals for myself. The first is that this summer, I want to do 2 parts (swim and run) of a sprint triathalon. My partner will do the biking in between. The next year, I will do the whole thing myself!
Wish me luck!
