Here we go.....again....
Thursday, May 30, 2019
Some people may say I'm flaky, that I can't finish anything I start. However, I feel that I am winning because each time I fall down, I will eventually get up again and push myself even harder. In 2014 I started a new journey to exercise more and lose weight - but refused to call it a diet - I definitely wanted a lifestyle change. I lost a total of 67 pounds over the next two years. I was feeling so great and confident, that is until I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This completely threw me for a loop...I mean, who loses all that weight and then gets diagnosed with TYPE 2 Diabetes. I lost all motivation and excitement about everything - life, happiness, exercise, or a desire to make myself healthy.
Fast forward a couple of years.....I am now on two insulins and a pill to control my diabetes. The insulin makes me gain weight, but after fighting very hard, I'm happy to say that I'm not gaining, but fighting with every ounce of my energy to at least stay at my current weight. My blood glucose levels are coming down and I'm hoping to be off insulin within the next 3 months! Once off the insulin, with the nutrition and exercise goals I have for myself, I KNOW that the weight will start melting off again. I can't wait for that to happen.
