I thought I would update you with what has been going on with me. I have not been writing to often this last year. My health has not been to good.
In October of 2008 I had to get back in the wheel chair. Lupus and FMS has been acting up. I am in the wheel chair when I go out of the house I am not able to stand long or walk just getting to the bathroom is really hard.
In November 2008 I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I have changed my ways once again and I have lowered my blood sugars, now they are at non diabetic numbers in the 80s and 90s. I test every day and eat a lot less and I am loosing weight. I am thankful for loosing weight. I need to loose weight.
My starting weight was 320 Monday Jan, 5, 2009 I will see how much I have lost since Nov 2008. I will keep an up date on how things go.
I write down every thing I eat and I count the carbs I eat between 50 and 75 carbs a day. I also stay between 1200 calories and 1800 calories at least for the most part. Durring the holidays I had a little more caloires but I stook to the low carbs and I did not eat any of the junk foods or the foods I love like Pizza or pasta or cake or pie.
I am learning lot about diabetes. I joined a group on line that talks about diabetes and we share how we deal.
I hope to meet others who live with diabetes so I can learn more about this disease. We are not a lone even when I feel alone I have to remind myself that I am not alone and I can live a long life. I just have to change my ways of eating, change the way I think about food, and listen to my body.
I will write some more on my blog in a day or say.
