FINALLY LOST MY FIRST 8 POUNDS!!!

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

WITH MY DOCTOR'S HELP I THINK THAT I WILL LOSE AT LEAST 25 MORE LBS. I WAS FOUND TO BE BORDERLINE DIABETIC AND THAT REALLY WORRIED ME. MY MOM WAS A TYPE 1 DIABETIC AND SHE SUFFERED SO MUCH WITH HERS. THE COMAS THAT YOU CAN GO INTO WHEN YOU ARE DIABETIC ARE MOST SCARY TO ME. ALSO, YOUR ORGANS ARE ALL AFFECTED AND YOU CAN REALLY LOSE PARTS OF YOUR BODY WITH THIS PROBLEM. I AM SO OVER FATTY FOOD. I LOVE IT, BUT I AM NOT INDULGING ANY LONGER. I LOVE TO COOK AND I'M MODIFYING MY RECIPES NOW. I'LL BE ADAPTED TO IT SOON. ANYONE WITH IDEAS ON LOW FAT, LOW CALORIE RECIPES ARE WELCOME TO SEND THEM TO ME. I'LL ALSO TALK TO ANYONE ABOUT THE DIABETES THAT WAS SUCH A BURDEN TO MY MOM'S LIFE. I AM SIGNED UP FOR EDUCATION CLASSES AT THE HOSPITAL THAT IS NEAR ME. MY DOCTOR'S NEW OFFICE IS ADJACENT TO THE HOSPITAL. I'M REALLY FEELING POSITIVE AND WANT TO BECOME UNDERWEIGHT AGAIN. THAT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR A DIABETIC. I DON'T MEAN EMACIATED, I JUST MEAN A BIT UNDERWEIGHT.

I WISH ALL OF YOU THE SAME GREAT RESULTS AND SUPPORT AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED ANY SUPPORT BECAUSE I FEEL VERY GOOD AT THAT.

    Hon, so good to see you have a blog today. You are right about keeping the weight low with diabetes. I read that even with border-line diabetes, it can do real damage to the blood vessels, especially in the eyes. so you are smart to really take care of yourself now. emoticon
