I am 56 years old. On May 23rd,2016 I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2. I cried for 15 minutes, gave myself that time for a pity party and then said, well, time to change your life style. I was a smoker and ate horribly. I did not eat a lot, just when I did eat, it was all the wrong foods. I threw out my cigarettes and started researching on line about diabetes. I am on a low carb diet, stopped smoking and now work out every day. (well, treadmill and biking and a little weights, but it is something at least). I have an ambitious goal. To get down to 120 lbs. (I have never in my life been thin, so that would be an odd look if I made it to that goal) and the second part of my goal is to kick the diabetes altogether with diet and exercise. I have read it can be done and I want to be one of those success stories. (My doctor calls it "remission", but I say if it is in remission I don't have it! lol) 89 lbs is a lot of weight to lose and I just pray I don't get discouraged when it isn't coming off as fast as I want it to and that I can stay true to my diet and exercise regime.

Resisting Temptation
That is awesome! Resisting Halloween candy is definitely not an easy thing to do. For so many of us, the sugar was a big factor in us needing to change our WOE to begin with. Great job!
