So, why am I back? ..you would think the embarrassment would keep me away or at least try starting SP under a new name; but, here I am.. with new motivation and determination.. and a real incentive: Last year I was diagnosed pre-diabetic and did nothing to stop it [in fact, I probably gained weight] I was in real denial. However, it caught up with me and in August of this year, I began itching all over my body, was covered in rash and hives and losing my sight over night. I had a few other problems which was caused by not being treated right away.
I really buried by head in the sand! Well, I'm taking it pretty serious NOW and doing program hardcore..very thankful for another chance at life, as all my tests results came back good [no damage done yet].. and I feel more HOPE than I ever have about living life more successfully and healthily. I've lost 65 lbs and have gained so much knowledge since being seen.. The Bible say's those things that are meant to destroy me, God can turn it around for my good and lets just say that this diabetes is THAT for me. I've never been able to stick to program or make healthy eating a way of life, but this time I've got the incentive [motivation] and have learned that by cutting out sugary things and bad carbs, I can gain control over cravings and false appetite.. Wish I had known this years ago ..that sugar and carbs were stimulating my hunger [my appetite] and NOW in small moderation I have learned that I don't have to lose control, but by reading labels and counting carbs, I can do this without much struggle. In fact, no struggle once I figured out the enemy was sugar and living for too many carbs!
Since being diagnosed I have lost 30 lbs, the other weight loss started before..
Thanks for getting me to start blogging again Carol!
And THANK YOU for reading this..
