When I was diagnosed with diabetes 15 days ago, it felt as though my world had come crashing down around me. It felt like a death sentence of sorts.
But in two short weeks I've come to see it much differently. It is nothing more than my body FORCING me to do what I should have been doing all along, take care of myself. If sheer willpower isn't enough then diabetes will be!
I have been "back at it" here at Sparkpeople for 2 weeks, taking my meds like I'm supposed to, eating right, and the weight is starting to come off. I know that this time it will continue to come off, too. I want to live a long life and the only way to do that is to take care of myself, so that is what I'm doing.
Sometimes it takes life slapping us in the face with something like diabetes for us to do the right thing.
Now I am.
