No matter how slow or how fast I move towards that goal, I'm getting there. One step at a time!





Exercise can be my friend, supposedly. We'll try that!

The dreaded D word is....Diabetes

So I've been told this May that I have diabetes. Just like my mom, my dad, both my grandmothers and 2 uncles. Truthfully, I'd rather make cards, do scrapbooking, drool over Taylor Kinney on Chicago Fire, go shopping, go on Facebook, or just sit and do nothing than worry about my weight. But here I am. Just like everyone else on this site, fighting the battle of the bulge. I just got a Garmin VivoSmart. I'm hoping it will motivate me to get moving....

SparkPoints: 5,414

Fitness Minutes: 4,046

My Goals:
I would like to get down to 154 lbs. This puts me in the "normal range" instead of the "obese" range.

My Program:
I am back to counting calories on SparkPeople.com because I've let myself get out of control. My portion sizes and snacking are my major problems.

Personal Information:
I've been married for over 21 years and am a proud mom of two girls, age 18 and 16. I'm not a huge fan of exercise, and I love food. Unfortunately! I do find that when I am busy, I don't eat as much until I sit down in the evening. Then I continually snack to make up for the calories I didn't eat all day.

Other Information:
I love shopping, scrapbooking and cardmaking. I also enjoy geocaching!

For my PF, I did all the traditional stuff:
- rolled the arch on a frozen water bottle
- stretched
- tried to stay off using it (as if that's possible)

I did the expensive stuff:
- physical therapy
- orthotics
- new shoes every three months
- used the Strassbourg Sock at night

The SSock probably helped me the most with pain management, and I found relief the first night I wore it. But I still had pain all day long, just not the "stepping on broken glass" kind of pain first thing in the morning.

I can't say that any one thing helped me to run again, except that PF had to run it's course until it was done. I was mostly off running for eighteen months, and for four of those months, I was even off walking, plus for two months I did absolutely no cardio or strength training.

Frustrating is the right word to describe this condition. I hope yours does not last this long. I have learned a very valuable lesson though, on pushing through workouts when you first feel pain. I don't think I'll ever make that mistake again.

Take care.
