Back again...again.

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

But what is it they say? Just keep getting up and starting over and over until you reach your goal.

It was my recent diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes that did it. I knew it was coming -- both of my parents are diabetic! But like so many others, I let life and my long list of other health problems hold me back. Now I literally have no choice. I've been told that my numbers put me in imminent danger of death by heart attack or stroke. Not in 20 or 30 years...NOW.

I'm working it out starting now. Looking for help, trying to educate myself,and joining the Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge here, as well as the 100+ Team here.

We'll see how it goes. I'm going to try and blot here more often

    emoticon back.

Each time we try again, we have more knowledge and more practice. I'm sorry it took a diagnosis and scare like that, but living healthier is worth the work.
