My name is Rene and I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes on December 29, 2014. My BG was 509 in the ER that day which was a shock. I had it checked six weeks earlier and it was normal. I am extremely motivated to get this under control. I have been working on weight loss and have lost 30 pounds since May 2014. I also have major clinical depression which is beginning to be under better control. I have a lot of pets which I adore and I foster kittens and puppies for a local rescue as well. I hope that Sparkpeople will help me stay accountable so I am able to reach my goals.

    Just popping by to see how you're doing. You've been quiet for a few days and just making sure you're ok.

    Thinking of you!!

    For years I have suffered with clinical depression. People don't really understand if they've never had it. It's not the same as just having a few bad days. I have to say that my mood has improved greatly the last couple of months. I guess it's all the walking outside, exercise and healthy food.
