HI! I'm Angel, married mom of 1 son + 2 bonus children. Empty-nester here and enjoying the flexibility of being self employed. Since I have more time to focus on me, that's exactly what I'm doing. I also enjoy being creative specifically with jewelry making, drawing, writing and blogging.

I'm very down-to-earth and open minded. I enjoy family time, party time and quiet time. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. I love rock 'n roll, and enjoy concerts.

In the past 2 years, I've adopted a new love in healthy cooking. In 2011 I was diagnosed with diabetes. I was devastated especially since my (late) maternal g-father and mother had/has it. After dr's advice and reading everything I could get a hold of, I decided diabetes wasn't going to rule my life! My journey started then. Every bad food item was either donated or thrown out and I got serious. I lost -89lbs in 4 months. I know it was way fast but it sure was nice. Those pounds came back over the next year and a half. I just started eating whatever I wanted. My sugar levels went back up and so did my blood pressure.

Finally, my mind-set has been on track for the past year+. Even though for most of that time, I've only managed to lose a few pounds, I was happy to maintain. I no longer take meds for diabetes or blood pressure and I never want to again. So here I am at FS with a serious attitude. In the past, my commitment was half-hearted at best.

Glad to be back with a vengeance. I feel so much healthier, less aches and pains and the weight is finally going down at a nice pace.

*Update* 100lbs lost and still going! My next goal is to be under 200lbs.

HELP!!

Well, the good news is losing weight and lessening calories usually has a very positive effect on your blood glucose levels. Everyone is different but I tried going extreme and then more gradual. For me changing gradually worked better. I am on a lower carb diet and not low carb. My A1C is below 6 and at one time was as high as 10. So, good luck, step at a time and keep involved in the community

Exactly. My doctor told me 4 years ago that losing the weight helps lower A1C and also suggested 90 min per week of at least treadmill time. After losing 62lbs so far, my A1C went from 8.2 down to 5.0

HELP!!
I used to be a pasta addict. Ice cream too. I pasta with most meals and often times as a main course. Ice cream nightly. When I decided to kick diabetes, I quit (bad carbs) cold turkey. The first two days felt weird and I had a localized headache on the right side of my head that tylenol didn't seem to help. The headache was gone by day 3 and the cravings eventually subsided too. Alternatives that may help you would be~ for pasta, try zucchini noodles. Zucchini also works if you want to make a mock lasagna, just simply cut length-wise for your lasagna noodle. The zucchini really tricks your brain. If you don't like the taste of zucchini, spice it up with some olive oil and Ms. Dash. For bread (if its a sandwich type of food you're wanting) I chose Mission's low carb wraps. Yes, the carbs are there and its processed but the carbs are low, nonetheless. For sweets, maybe once a week, I'll have sugar-free jello.
