The new me is being put into place

Thursday, December 27, 2007


This past year has been ok. I have been on the battle field ((my personal war with diabetes.))) For those who have newely diagnosed please take it serious. ((Google diabetic complications on images )) for the detailed pictures. For those who don't have it please eat healthy and exercise.

I am renewing my committment to follow The Best Life Diet and I am beginning again on phase 1 starting January 1st. I make a commentment to not compare myself against anyone else. This is my jouney but I am sharing it with my spark friends and family. I make a commiment to exercise and eat according to my diabetic plan and incorporate along with the Best Life Diet recommendations. I have read them and they are not dangerous. I am not on meds for my diabetes as of yet and I am controlled by prayer, exercise, diet and strength that the Lord gives me each day. So I think that I can experiement a little with caution of course.

I am truly looking forward to the new year and I can't wait to see what God has in store for me on this journey with diabetes. No diabetes isn't a death sentence. My motte is I may have diabetes but diabetes doesn't have me. Meaning each day I can challenge myself with exercise etc. and see the results. Or I can lay down and give into diabetes and let it over take me. That is not my style!! I believe that with prayer and hard work on my part, that my diabetes can be reversed or I can delay the complications by staying in tight control and gaining victory over the emotional eating I have.

I see victory ahead. I hope that you can see it in your life too.

I am truely grateful for all of Gods blessings. We are a blessed nation. I am grateful for the greatest gift of all Jesus Christ. Christmas always brings the spirit of giving and many are helped thur food and other means. But why don't we give each and everyday??? There is a need. We have so much here.

I have seen the best of times and the worst of times within my own country and outside my country. Our troops are giving theirs lives in more ways than one. War is ugly and I am not grateful for it. I must admit that I am not flag burner. I love this country but I don't like what the leaders are doing. This on going war is ugly and many are suffering the born, unborn, old and the young, soldiers and finally for those who truly want peace. My bible tell me to pray for our enemies and I am asking God ti give me strength to do this. I am in much prayer about all of this. For all of this who are serving I am praying for a safe return and for those who are innocently suffering my prayers are going to the mercy seat continually. This is a way for me to heal or post to sort take care of the images I have seen because of this war.

I will be the first to say that only Christ coming will bring peace and I hope that our leaders--all leaders come to relize this one day. Only his coming again and his restoration of things as they begun before the enemy tried to destroy the plan of God. One day his plan will be placed in this earth.

Revelation 21:1--21:4

AND I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH: FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH WERE PASSED AWAY; AND THERE WAS NO MORE SEA.

AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES; AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NEITHER SORROW, NOR CRYING, NEITHER SHALL THERE BE ANY MORE PAIN: FOR THE FORMER THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.

Christ first coming brought hope-salvation. At his second coming he will make things the way he wants them to be.

So Am reminded by this verse that there is hope. I give him thanks and praise for his mercy in the midst of all things........

Back to normal in more ways than one!

Monday, December 17, 2007


Sunday I had a bad scare my blood sugar was 285 and it hasn't been that high since I was diagnosed as a diabetic. I am very aware of what this diease can do. It is my mission to stay in range with what the doctors sugessted. I couldn't exercise because we had company and my mom cooked us a pre-christmas dinner and my sister came in from out of town. I didn't over eat by any means, but I do think the fact that I ate about 8:00 had something to do with it.

Praise God this morning it was normal for a (Me) diabetic. 86 I have come across many that are on pills, insulin or both. The thought of me having to stick needles in my skin makes me want to vomit and faint. So by the help of God I will stay on top of this. After all, if I don't do my best to stay in range and do the best that I can not only will I suffer but my kids and husband and all those who love me. I am not going down like that.

I do relize that I am human but no way am I going to use that as a ticket for me to gorge on everything I see. Moderations is key along with prayer.

I am on a diabetes busting mission.

Update on my hd obessions with sweets, cookies, donuts so far he has not brought anything sweet except candy. May be a cookies party has ended. I sure hope so--Hey a girl can have dreams.

Battles Raging

Friday, December 14, 2007


It has been two weeks straight that my hd has brought sweets in the house. I have been put to the test over and over again. I have come to the conclusion that he has an obsession with sweets. Of course he will not admit to that\. Last night he brought some donuts. I gave him that look. (Why did you do that to me???? look.) I ask him if he really was ok with my weight loss? The truth is I am not stopping no matter how he feels I am dong this for me and my health-- he said that I wants me to continue losing weight. I ask him was he trying to ruin my efforts? He reassured me that he wasn't. But in my mind and eye he is. I am sooooooo glad that donuts are not a problem for me. I guese I am just writing this to help me with my emotional eating and it is a part of my healing. I told him again that I was writing about him in my blog. I know deep inside this will not stop him from buying sweets. This is for me to talk or vent etc. The truth is power lies within me (with the help of The Lord and the spirit of God that is in me) I can choose to listen to the voice that says eat them or I can listen to the voice of reason that tells me to resist. I did once again resist. And again I am greatful to God for his power in my life to overcome. Tempation and one more test and trail I will have to encounter even at the hand of my hd and family. Oh yea when I ask him about the sabotage factor he called my two teenagers (who can eat the brick off the house) to come and help him eat them. So I guese that is some sort of victory in itself. I can not lie they looked wonderful but this diabetes is not giving up either. I shall not die by the fork, but I shall die trying with my very last breath. I am making a big deal about this because diabetes can be a killer if you let it will ruin you. I am not going to let that happen to me without a fight!!! If you're interesed in seeing what uncontrolled diabetes can do-- you can goggle "diabetes complications" and you will see for yourself. Until then the battle is on going with the Lord as my helper.

A time of testing. I passed!!!!

Monday, December 10, 2007


This morning was was ver busy. We had to take our little boy to the dr. out of town. On our way he always wants a sausage biscuit and hash brown. Well today he decided that he wanted to wait and eat them. Can you guese who stuck a biscuit under my nose. MMMMMMMMMM the smell of those biscuits. I paused for a woment ..... and gave it some thought but then I said no thank you to my hd. Next I was offered a hash brown.My mouth started to water. I told him that I was trying to do right and that he wasn't helping tempting with those kinds of foods. Later my little boy decided he would eat them after all. Another victory for me!!!! I told my hd that I was going to post in my blog about him tempting me so. Thank you Jesus!!! The old me would have devoured both biscuit and hash brown.

    Hey, Congratulations, Do. I wasn't that good. I went to a supermarket that sells pizza and I got a pepperoni, canadian bacon and pineapple pizza. Thank God, I only go there about every three or four months.
