Well I am back. It seems that I start something and then something happens and I just stop. Well I can't this time. Yesterday I went to the doctor and was told I have diabetes. Regular blood tests show that I don't have it but my doctor did an extensive blood test that breaks everything down. He wanted to find out why I had heart disease at 49. They figured it out. I have an extremely high insulin level. This was causing the walls of my arteries to erode. Thus heart disease at 49. Well now is the time for me to be more motivated, to have enough confidence in myself to do this. I have to lose weight if I want to live out a healthy life with my family.

I can do this and I will do this. I will not let anything get in my way. I might need to be reminded of this on a daily basis. But I CAN DO THIS. I will not let other people influence me any longer. I will not let other people make me feel inferior. I am somebody special and I have so much to give.

I CAN DO THIS!! With God all Things are Possible.

    I was diabetic and was morbidly obese (357lbs) and I have heart disease.(Left Bundle Branch Block) I was so low that I did not know what I was going to do. Until, one day I said out loud to myself. "Judy, if you don't stop this (meaning my mindless eating and binging) you are going to die." I asked my Savior for His help to lose the weight (See my Sparkpage SINGINGLADY47 for my complete story). I now weigh 120 and my last blood work is ALL normal. I am not going to say that I don't have issues but I want you to know that YOU CAN DO THIS and JESUS is your strength. The day my doctor told me that I was NO LONGER MORBIDLY OBESE and NO LONGER DIABETIC, I could not believe it. In fact, I made her say it again. I am not saying that the weight loss will cure the diabetes. I only know that it did for me. I know things can look so hopeless and scary at times but you have a Partner in the Lord and you have a family with Keep Walking With Jesus who are eager to support and encourage you. Please know that we are all here for you so when you need help, just want to vent or have questions or suggestions, it only takes a minute to reach out. We are all in this together and the Lord is right there with us. God bless you. Have a wonderful Wednesday evening. Judy emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Diabetes runs in my family and I understand what a challenge that can be for overall, long term health. But you've started in the right direction and you can definitely make a change to diabetes with a change in your eating. Stay strong and you know you can do this! emoticon
