View KPEARSON's food & exercise for this day

Well, here I am, exactly where my family said I would be. Had a doctor's appointment yesterday, not good news. My kidneys are damaged from lack of taking care of my diabetes. Seeing some specialists next week to determine the extent of the damage and if it's correctable or not.

So here I am. Going to stop making excuses, going to correct the damage I've done to myself and do this for real this time. Feeling pretty beat up right now but for good reason. I know my family cares about me and only wants me to be here with them. I had a good cry last night, but today, it's starting the change I need to do.

I'm hoping using this website will help me stay focused and motivitated to make the right choices, do the right things even if it's baby steps. So any help, support and advice anyone can give me, I sure would welcome it with open arms.:)

Karen - Take it one step at a time, focus on the positive changes, not your missteps, and keep at it even though it's a painful process to begin. If it were easy, none of us would be here . . . or, we would have done it when we were in our twenties (or earlier). If you want it badly enough, and know you are worth it, you'll do it. In Nov., I'll have been at this for two yrs. and it is so worth it. You're in the right place. Welcome. :hi: Karen
