What a great place to start! Check out the Managing Diabetes Group as well, once your challenge is well in hand--some of that team are here too (like me! LOL) and you'll find an equal amount of encouragement and good advice there...
And any time you have questions about the site, just ask--there are TONS of helpful people, and always someone with answers-- or who know where to find them! LOL
Welcome to the team! Kathy
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
For me it is officially time to start taking it all seriously. I need to get my diabetes under control and this seems like a good place to start. I have 73lbs I would like to lose and this is were I am going to start. This seems easier. It doesn't seem completely overwhelming yet. So here I go. This is the start of a new me. Specifically with this challenge I hope to begin making the changes necessary to take my life back from a disease that has dominated my life for the past 2 years.
