“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Hi there! My name is Dez. As the title says, I am an eighteen-year-old lady who is ready to take her life in a new, healthy, and productive direction. Here are a few short and sweet facts about me: 1. I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in September of 2012. 2. I was born with a mild case of asthma. 3. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol in 2013. 4. I was diagnosed with anxiety in December of 2013. 5. I take 70/30 insulin and Metformin ER to treat my Diabetes. 6. I was accepted into Dalton State College, Georgia in June of this year for the fall semester. 7. I am going to college to be a nurse and to eventually earn my BSN soon afterwards. 8. I work at Walmart as a cashier. 9. I am, right now, a heavy smoker (a pack or more a day of menthol cigarettes). I am wanting to quit, of course. 10. I weigh, today, 201 pounds.
I am just stating these facts so that I may receive help from the SparkPeople Community, especially from those with a similar background. I am so happy and excited that I am now part of a caring community that I can utilize to help, not only myself, but others. I hope everyone is succeeding in their endeavor. Happy sparking! (:
