Starting Again

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Here I am starting a healthy lifestyle. I have let myself go by taking care of others and now being on diabetes medicine and weighing the most I have ever weighed in my life, I need to make this change.

I have consulted and endocrinologist who has referred me to a diabetes lifestyle coach. Now is the time to put my foot down and take care of myself.

I am glad spark people is here so I can be accountable for my nutrition and exercise as well as the support from our community.

So I am at the fork in the road, choosing the path of putting myself first with healthy eating and exercise instead of going down the old familiar path of doing for others and ignoring my own needs.

    The first step and probably the hardest (well it was for me) was making up my mind to 'get er done'.
    I made that step January 1st. And now I'm down 39 pounds.

    If *I* can do it, *you* can do it!

    Of course you can do it!! Plus, how can you ever care for others if you are flat on your back, or blind or in neuropathy pain or on dialysis!?! Been diabetic my entire life, nothing to do with weight, born this way, but those are the complications that come from any type diabetic not taking care of oneself! I'm blind! Learned the hard way to care for myself!! so, welcome back!! You can do this! And, this is the place to do it!! Yay You!
