Gaining the wrong way

Sunday, November 15, 2009

This year has been challenging with my health as I have met with a few accomplishments which are causing a few disapointments. Getting my diabetis in better control with different insulin has alowed my A-1 C to go down from 10.1 to 6.4 and my blood sugar levels in range but I have not found a balance within myself to lose weight while doing this. I have gained over 20 lbs because my body is no longer dumping sugars from my kidneys and I've failed to exercise and change my eating habits during this time. Needing the insulin has brought me face to face with actually confronting myself to look deeper to get a handle on my life. Since the blood sugar levels are lower and can no longer loose the weight like i once did since joining sparkpeople, I realize what has to be done to get this off and not sure if i have it in me to do it. Am I strong enough? Where is it in me to get this weight off? What will finally get me to this point? I have the love and support around me, just need to do it!

    Funny isn't it? When I first started losing weight it was because my blood sugar was out of control. Everyone kept raving about my weightloss but noone knew I was rapidly killing myself. Since my blood sugar is being managed, the weightloss has slowed drastically. I understand your frustration, but this is the best way. Now when you lose it you will be healthy enough to enjoy all of those who love and support you.
