"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes one mome

CHRISROSEJ,
Great job on loosing 60 pounds.

To loose more, and to better manage type 2 diabetes, avoiding carbs will help a lot. My impression of type 2 diabetes is that it is something you can have in varying degrees.

The sooner you manage it, the healthier your pancreas is, etc. and can still handle a bigger load of carbohydrates. So take care of yourself. I was fortunate enough to change what I ate before I burned my pancreas out. So I'm hanging in there medication free, but without a lot of tolerance. 90 grams of carbs is too much for me, and I can still manage about 30 or 40, whereas the North American daily average is 330 a day, about 10 times what I can tolerate.

So don't burn out your system, give it a vacation from carbs.

James

Hello Everyone my name is Rose. I am a mother of 2 beautiful teenage daughters. I am a customer service rep in a local call center. I have been on Spark for a while now. I have not been all that faithful in the last 2 1/2 years due to my work schedule and other issues in my life. I have done the best I can to get where I need to be but have not had a lot of success. I have started to loose the weight I need to get off slowly. I have lost 60 pounds in the last year. Would like the weight to come off more quicker but am proud of the accomplishments I have reached. About a month ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The Dr's are saying it is partly to the stress that my job and life in general has added. I also have been too involved with my family and my job to take care of myself. So I am on a new journey with new health benefits, better exercise and to make better health choices. I believe that when you unit with others it helps the journey go smoother. I look forward to meeting more people and to know that I am not alone and working together see our sugar go lower and see us all become healthier.
