A New Me. A New You.

 

December 28, 2015.  The day I learned I have type 2 diabetes.  That’s not what I wanted for Christmas.

So what am I going to do about it?

  • Start taking the medicine my doctor prescribed.
  • Start taking blood sugar readings.
  • Change how I cook.
  • Start exercising again.
  • Lose weight.
  • Help others who are on this journey.

My mother had diabetes.  My father has it.  So do 2 of my brothers.  And now it’s me.  But I don’t plan on having a pity party.  I also don’t plan to take my new medicine and not make any life-style changes.  I plan to do something.  For me.  For my wife and kids.  For my friends.  And for you.

This site was originally started as a Science Fair experiment by my elementary school-aged daughter.  I’m re-launching it for a variety of reasons:

  • To document my personal journey in (and out of) type 2 diabetes.
  • To research, try, and share good recipes that will help me curb carbs.
  • To encourage others who need to lose weight, to fight diabetes, to exercise.
  • To share resources that will help do all of this.

I value your input on this blog. Share your story.  Share your frustrations as well as victories.  Help encourage others.

What I don’t want for me or you:

  • heart disease
  • stroke
  • loss of eye sight
  • loss of movement
  • a shortened life

What I do want for me and for you:

  • Weight loss – we’ll feel better.  We both know it!
  • Healthy life-style of exercise, better eating
  • Loving life
  • Improvement
  • The BEST life you and I can live.

Join me on this journey.

    • Thanks, Betsy. I’m on a med and dietary change to manage mine. Just started taking blood sugar readings last night.

      I appreciate you visiting and following. Feel free to share whatever you are learning.
