Update about my family

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Last year the day before Valentine's day, my father passed away from pancreatic issues. Last month on the 20th of May, my mother passed away from Renal failure due to Diabetes. My sister has lost some weight the last time I saw her. Though it should be more, I'm concerned about her health considering our family history. I haven't seen my brother for a few years now so i don't know how he's doing. I keep praying I'll be able to prevent Diabetes myself. My boyfriend is a registered nurse and slender so he's a good influence

    I have diabetes on both sides of my family, so I can relate to that fear. By the grace of God, I did not get it even though I was approaching 300 lbs.

Although, I'm not to my goal weight yet, I don't have that sense of dread anymore.

Sorry about your mom and your dad. That must have been so hard losing them so close together.

Best wishes on your health journey!

    You've been through a lot with your family in the last year. I'm sorry about your losses, I think also you're in the right place to turn the cards around for yourself. Believe in you and you can do anything you want "even beat Diabetes".
