Welcome Home My sister

I am glad you have come home to a wonderful family and we will support you, encourage you and love you through this. Today, I began my trek to come off of diabetic medication altogether because I honestly believe, I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Blessings to you today and everyday.

Hi Denise,

I feel like you were talking to me in your post because I can definitely relate. Instead of getting worked up before your doctor visit and thinking the worse. The best thing for you to do is pray and I will pray for you as well. It seems when we get ourselves moving in the right direction the enemy attempts to distract us to prevent the blessings God has for us. Stay strong and focused.

God Bless emoticon

Hi all, im new to spark people and so happy i've joined its always been so hard for me to stick to anything for very long. But this time i must I went for a physical a few wks ago and found out i was prediabetic. I have lost about 10-12 pds so far. And im grateful beleive me and hopeful to continue. I feel its different now because i am reaching out to people for help , using God more in my life with relying on him. And in a strange way i dont know if you all can relate but eating healthy the way i have makes me feel "safe" because im taking care of myself and when i pass on things im not supposed to have i dont feel deprived as much fear i guess of diabetes has helped me tremendously because from the first time i got the news i was on a new improved way of eating and being healthy with no hesitation.
I tend to go from meeting here to meeting wondering and feeling overwhelmed i guess im the type of person who needs to limit myself to where i join and stick to that or i get to overwhelmed. Ive always been an emotional eater, especially when stressed. I have to go to the doctors tommorow for a mammogram and an ultrasound and im thinking why me? I just started to finally take care of myself much better and now this? I start thinking and thinking and already ive got myself in the grave, thinking oh no im gonna be bald im gonna have cancer im gonna die. And before you know it im thinking aww whats the use? But i know its wrong, to give up no matter what the circumstances and if im still doing this despite all my worrying then im well on my way to living with out turning to food to solve all my problems . I want to be my own best friend. Take myself by the hand and say its ok Denise , you'll be ok and there is nothing that should make you abuse yourself anymore. I am hoping when people read this they will pray for me . I would appreicate the support , like alot of you i have heard say you dont get much support at home, i dont know if thats my husbands intention i just think he doesn't "get it"? ANd i don't need to be mad at him because he is who he is. I need to learn to rely on myself also and as i stated earlier be my own "best friend" having said all this (sorry for ranting) im looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you and hopefully i can offer support as well . God speed for everyone to have a long healthy and happy journey We CAN do this!!!! Just rely on God and each other to help you in days to come. We all need people in our lives dont be shy just reach out. And even if you are shy and worry what others will think of your posts do it anyway!!! Because you will help alot of people who will say after reading wow...i feel that way too , so im not alone after all and if they have the courage to be themselves then you will feel encouraged to hope i helped someone today :)

We can do this!!!
