I live about an hours north of Joplin Mo with my husband of 29+ years. I have three grown kidems. Lyddia, Clint, Darcey. The youngest is second year college. I have two Grandkidems, Poppet just turned one in August and Ducky will be one in December. I like to occupy my weekends chaseing after them. I work for an Engineering Firm. I digitize construction schematics for local telephone companies on their fiber to the home projects. Fun but I sit for long hours straight. We live on my husbands family farm. We raise longhorn cattle for a hobby. The country is very peaceful. I like watching the stars at night.

I was told I have type two diabetes and high blood pressure, and that I was also anemic. The doctor said it was a wonder I wasn't eating ice or outside eating dirt (I was eating ice). All I thought about was getting home and eating ice. I would wrap up in a blanket and I would clean out my ice maker each day. It was so bad that i would even use my fingers to get the ice crumbs. I was given several meds and I took the classes to manage my conditions. I followed closely what I was told to do. Diet and Exercise. (I was only eating once a day which is why they say I have the diabetes) I lost 30 lbs. Everyone said I was looking so much better. I was able to get my blood pressure to normal and my sugar was normal. I was even able to give blood. I let the complements go to my head and let up on my regiment basically I quit all that i . Soon I was eating the treats brought to work. I gained half of what I lost. I quit exercising. I quit taking my meds and just didn't care. We all die sooner or later you might as well enjoy the slide into death. I am terrible of taking my meds. Now I see the errors of my way. So September 10th at 202.5lbs I once again started to do the right thing. Gets my husband kids and mom off my back. I feel happier with my choices. I still can't bring myself to take those pills. I am going to succeed with diet and exercises as my life choices.
