Still here and have actually started cooking again! My body needs home cooked and non-processed foods to function. I am exploring glycemic index/load way of eating. Has anyone done this and how has it worked? From what I have read so far it ... Read more

I have been back for a while now and only missed one day of food tracking. Although the scale says I have not lost the usually firm abdomen says I am improving. The week before last I was really cutting my carbs. When I went to step up on to... Read more

The Call...

Saturday, November 23, 2013      2 comments

So Friday I got 'the call'. The doctor needs to see you about your new diagnosis of diabetes. No longer 'pre-diabetes'... I see her on Monday. Life will have to change. I will have to find the cord for the elliptical and start using it. I ... Read more
