Hi my name is Margie and I am both new to the team and stepping up to try to revive this team because I believe this is an imprtant issue and I know we are all Stroner than a Mars Bar and our temptations. I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2004, and despite having a serious family history of diabetes, ignored the diagnosis I guess hoping it would go away. When I met my wonderful husband in 2006, he convinced me to take charge of my disease. I got pregnant in early 2007 and becasue of close monitoring and MY STRENGTH I had a picture perfect pregnancy. I remember my doc teling me my A1C was probably better than his. Less than a year later in October 2008, at the age of 28, I had a heart attack. I had 100 percent blockage in my LAD. Doctors were dumbfounded, and because of the way it went down (I suffered a misdiagnosis and spent 24 hours suffering before they caught my heart attack I felt so lucky go be alive that temtptation wasnt an issue. After a couple of months of living on salad, I was feeling great and losing weight. But then I fell...and seems like I never really got up till now. I am re-soarked and finding strength in the weeks since I have been back. I know I can do this. I believe you can do this too!
