Reunited - Again?

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I first found Sparkpeople in Jan. 2010. Can't believe it's been 3 years! So much has happened but the main thing is, I have not lost the weight I set out to loose. So here I am, at least 20 lbs. heavier instead of 20 lbs. lighter and NOW with a recent diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. SMDH. I hope this will be the kick in the butt I need to get on track and STAY on track! I've been doing good since being told about the diabetes but that was barely 6 days ago. I want to be "med free in the 2-0-1-3" meaning off the blood pressure pills AND diabetes stuff by COB 12/31/13. I know, once a diabetic, always a diabetic but I want to be able to control my sugar levels without meds. Same with the blood pressure. No meds! I just wanna pop a multi-vitamin everyday and move starting this journey, again. Hopefully for the last time!

    MICKEYD4 -- No insulin, just pills. Thanks for the words of encouragement!

    Welcome back on the road to healthy. Sometimes we need a swift kick to get us moving. Perhaps once a diabetic always a diabetic --- but ... you can be one that NEVER needs medication again. I was on HBP meds and was taken off in August 2012. I took my first pill again this week although I haven't gain any weight, but it was a smidget high (guess salt intake). But just know its possible. 10-15#s make a big difference, blessings to you, hope to see you around
