Some of my thoughts today

Today is my mom's birthday. If she were alive she would be 78 but she died when she was 65. Wow, I can't believe it's been 13 years since she died and 16 years since my dad died! My mom died of complications of hepatitis and my dad had a heart attack. My dad and sister both had diabetes and my sister had a pre-cancerous polyp in her intestine removed this year. I suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I am beginning to have some peripheral neuropathy in my hands--numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. I want to eat better so I can avoid these problems or slow them down. I don't want to lose any limbs or my eyesight or get kidney failure or have a stroke. I've got to take control now so I can avoid these complications.

Great start! If you lose 20% it is supposed to help control diabetes complications. Diabetes complications are real scary!! Your not alone, even though you have lost some loved ones. Your mom wants you to be happy and healty!

I was at the doctors office and my A1C was down to 6.5. Dr was very happy. I also lost 20 lbs since I saw her in June. Hurray for good things.
