See You in September!

mamatoadJuly 22, 2012

Just to let you know that I won't be posting from Aug. 23 to the middle of September. I am committed to use the time that I normally spend on the computer to actively work on getting off my diabetes meds. I know I'll miss all of you and will have withdrawal pains but I feel very strongly about doing this. God bless each of you!

Will you still be posting here for the next month, until Aug. 23?

I'm happy to hear that your goal is health improvement.

BRAVO!

Congratulations for making the decision, Mama. It can be done. I'm a non-medicating diabetic and have been for over ten years. I have such violent reactions to drugs that when I was told that was in the future for me...I knuckled down immediately to counting carbs, eliminating everything "white" in my diet and exercising. At first, it was an extremely taxing way of daily living...always having to account for everything I set before me. Now...it's such a way of life that anything outside of my diet regimen has no appeal to me whatsoever. And I thought I'd never say that about ice cream. ;-)

A couple of helpful suggestions: [1] drink lots of water throughout your day and [2] be sure to get at least seven hours of sleep a night. Although I no longer have to worry about dieting, keeping at an acceptable glucose level is made much easier by following these two suggestions.

So again...BRAVO!

Anne

Good Luck. I am a firm believer that we HAVE to take control of our own health and health issues. With the big influx of baby boomers coming up (I'm one of them) I'm afraid that the health system won't be able to take care of us all and so we have to take care of ourselves.

I'm rooting for you. YOU GO!

Good luck to you. DH had to go on insulin which for us is easier. But he also has other health issues.

Besides the diet, exercise and losing weight (if you need to) is important, too. Good luck and I can't wait til you're back, dear!!
