a day to reflect

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Today I am reflecting on a few things. The success I have had with the Diabetes Prevention Plan, Spark People and AIM HI (Americans In Motion-Health Intervention) plans. They have helped me move forward. I was hiding behind all my fat and emotional eating wasn't helping. emoticon I wasn't happy with myself nor did I like myself. How could I like anyone else?? I was angry and bitter. Quick to get emotional and over-react to things people said to me. emoticon

I am so much happier now. I like me!! I like most of my body with a few exceptions!! Losing 60 pounds in two years was not my goal. I wanted to lose 100 pounds. It will come. I am emoticon looking forward to one-erland! I am close. Only about 6 pounds to go and I will break the 200 pound mark. emoticon

I want to thank all the people that have helped me get to where I am including all my friends, family and Spark Friends. I want to shout off the roof tops that emoticon and really mean it this time!!

I am not a new person. I am the person I was always meant to be. Active and in better shape than I was 6 years ago. No longer pre-diabetic and no cholesterol or triglyceride problems! A1C of 5.5...Wow!! I really did stop diabetes in it's tracks! It is something I have worried about since my Dad was diagnosed with it and my aunt died with a blood sugar above 400! My worse fear was that I would have to take insulin or go blind. I didn't want to lose my independence or have to carry around insulin everywhere I went.

Yes, I feel I am doing well. Even with my latest mental health problems I feel I have accomplished so much.

This journey is ongoing. I will be on it the rest of my life and hopefully it is a long life without significant pain or health problems. emoticon

Until next time...
