2020- October Type 2 Diabetic - Journey continues thankfully its something that I'll always need to manage. Weight has gone up down and up again. I've recently taken off some of the weight I've gained. I guess I'm grateful that I haven't stopped trying to manage and stay healthy. With COVID I think it scared me straight knowing how much worse the complications could be if I weren't in the best health possible.

I frequently use the saying It's not easy being green, that refers to staying in the green zone when testing my sugar


I am type 2 Diabetic, a low carb plan is what works best for me, keeping my sugars in check and my weight loss successful. When I don't stick to that formula, then my body shows it. Every time I try to do something else it just doesn't work. I'm finally back on track. My challenges for me is to take things slow, and upon achieving goal to learn on how to maintain.

60 pounds to goal and I can't wait to get there.

My blog 2014-2015 will share with you my high points and my low points. Both Joyous and Heartbreaking. But it's all part of the journey. I know I'm not alone.
