Spark people are strong & special
Saturday, November 09, 2013
I am visiting with my son, daughter-in- law, and new grandchild this weekend. Both Mat & Nora are in med school, and will take 4 major exams on Monday. The exams are on endocrinology (Diabetes). They started asking me questions about my experiences with Type2 Diabetes. I was diagnosed with it almost 3 uh years ago.
Right after I was diagnosed, I joined SparkPeople. I am able to control the Diabetes with food and exercise, and the support of the Spark community. This is an enigma in today's society. The fact that I do not need medication to control Type 2 diabetes is unusual. Living a disciplined eating regime for years is not seen often.
For me, it's all about my goals. I want to hike Mount Monadnock with my grandchild one day. I want to hike often with my husband. I want to continue running in the woods. I love good health. Ow than the taste of sweet foods, and I eliminate the carbs from my diet.
I have dreams that I work on everyday to become my reality. Thank you, Spark Friends for being my encouragers.
