I have not followed any kind of program for some time. I got custody of my Granddog a little over two years ago. She was aging and in poor health and poor physical condition. My daughter and son-in-law brought her to me before they went to Singapore for 21 months. That was Feb. 2010. At that point, I did not watch my diet very well. Stress increased with my job and obligations at church overwhelmed my world. It was a very trying time. I neglected myself for the most part. My hubby was put on insulin and his moods were very bad for the most part. I was on a search committee to find a new minister, My granddog passed away and my mom was close to losing her life. it was not a pleasant time and I ate to deal with the stress.
I woke up one day and so much of the garbage was behind me. I found that I had gained all of the weight back. I am embarrassed and ashamed but I am dealing with it.
I have started reading a book dealing with diabetes and I am going to follow a diet that my husband needs to be on. We are starting out on 2 mile walks because his feet hurts from the diabetes. We will improve with time. I do some more exercise when we get home. I just want to support him and learn what I can about eating right. I thank each of you that have been "there" for me.
