Low-carb some more ^_^

I have been a type 2 diabetic for 5 years now and because of researching ways to improve my own health within the past year, I have developed a very strong interest in Health & Medicine. Apart from my interests in Health, I am a creative creature and have been for as long as I can remember. I paint, craft and compose music ;)

I will be studying my first year in nursing in 2013. I have just been blessed with the news that I made it into nursing school so Im over the moon. My long term goal is to become a nurse practitioner specializing in either diabetes or mental health.

I created a Sparkpage to use as a tool to better manage my health, to be around others who are going through similar things & to offer my support.

My low-carb lifestyle begins today which is desperately needed for tight blood sugar control & weight loss before Uni starts. I was able to achieve an HbA1c of 5.4 (36 mmol/mol) after 3 months on low carb, & a 12kg weight loss within 5 weeks of low carbing + P90X, so I am aiming for those HbA1c numbers again and to get within my healthy weight range in 2013. As far as exercise goes, I am aiming for only 1-2 strength training sessions per week as recommended by the low carb community. I will try it for a month & if I see no results, I'll switch it up.

Wish me luck!

Oh, of course! I'm going back to school myself right now, too. That's the great thing about the field, there's always more to learn and you will NEVER be bored! I have a strong feeling that you will be accepted into the program... and besides, if you really want it bad enough (which I can see you do.. look at your determination to gain control over your own health) you will make it happen! Good luck on your application! Keep me updated... Oh, and I still didn't get the new trainers... but it's not stopping me from doing Insanity.. day 4 and still going strong!

Enjoy the rest of the week and emoticon emoticon

Our dog Snooks is almost 6 years old and weighs just 3 1/2 lbs, she is so light weight and tiny, a real affectionate little pet!

Have a great day!
