Hi everyone my name is Jessica. I'm 29 and recently found out I have type 2 diabetes. I cried in my car on the way to the emergency room knowing that this wasn't going to be easy to handle. I've done so well keeping my A1C down until I stopped paying attention to what I was eating and not being active which brought it back up and now my eye sight is going. It's hard for me to drive at night. Luckily if I lose weight and bring my A1C down my eyes should go back to normal. So knowing all this why is it so hard for me to get my act together?? Its not like this is going to go away on its own. What I can't get out of my head is the missing of food. The fact that I can't have the food I love makes me have anxiety ( which is soooo dumb its just food!!) but I have to tell my self for now I cant have those chips for now I cant have those fries for now I can't have all the bread I want, because once you get your self in control you are able to have those foods once in a while with out devouring the whole bag of chips in one sitting, Or with out going out 5 times a week to eat that burger in fries. This has to be the hardest thing I have had to do.. Lose weight. They say it gets easier and it gets to be habit forming and I have to believe that is true! So I wish everyone good luck on their journey and my the odds be ever in your favor!
