Making It Happen

I have been struggling. But I refuse to give up. I found SP back in 2007, after I'd been diagnosed with diabetes. I lost 20 pounds that I've basically kept off for that entire time.

But 20 is not enough. Not nearly. In fact, over time, my diabetes continued to progress despite my minor weight loss.

I am here to face the truth that I am a food junkie and a sugar addict.

I have been struggling. But I refuse to give up. I found SP back in 2007, after I'd been diagnosed with diabetes. I lost 20 pounds that I've basically kept off for that entire time.

But 20 is not enough. Not nearly. In fact, over time, my diabetes continued to progress despite my minor weight loss.

I am here to face the truth that I am a food junkie and a sugar addict.

And I am here to get my diabetes under control. This is perhaps my greatest challenge. I am watching diabetes affect me. I have no insurance. SP may be my only chance to survive this horrible condition.

If today is the first day of the rest of my life, let me get my life moving now.

I will need help. I am a most intransigent soul, it seems. But I'm here, and I'm trying. Wish me luck, fellow travelers.

The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things of life." -Robert Louis Stevenson

I've also realized that getting healthy and staying healthy and at a healthy weight are going to be lifelong projects for me. I find it helps so much to know I'm not in it alone, that there are so many other SparkPeople out there who will support me and who I will help support too. You can do it!
