Misery,

You know your right…we all have been saying things like family, friends, and whatnot, but in a sense we really must do it for ourselves!! Thanks for bringing that up. It really reminds us to make sure that we make "me" time for us…

I also do things and want to be fit and healthy for myself…But. There is no better motivation and reason to live for than my precious 3 year old baby. He is my reason for being a better person. He is my reason for taking even better care of myself. I don't take care of myself, then how will I take good care of him? He is the maximum motivator.

My reason for living is my husband, our 5 children, son in law, and grandchildren, also because God put all of us here for loving and a purpose. God is awesome for all he gives his children.

My reason to live would be my 3 year old toddler. He is the light of my life. He has a high chance his-self of getting diabetes cause myself and both grandmothers and great-grandmother has diabetes. Fortunately he is not over weight. He is right on his mark for age and height. He weighs 33lbs.

Aren't kids a great reason to keep on going? My 3 year old daughter is my biggest reason for making this "life change"…Not only did I find out that I am diabetic, but because of extensive family history with diabetes and the fact that my daughter at the age of 3 is 10 lbs overweight, she had a very good chance of becoming diabetic at an early age. Sucks that I'm diabetic, but if I can prevent it in her I will…so therefore she eats how I do now, and we exercise together…she has a blast…

I am very proud of how you are taking care of yourself, and helping your daughter; I have a great niece who is 5 and 120 pounds, and I have not been able to convince her mother to even take her to the doctors. We can only do what we can do. :->}claudia

Claudia,

Oh my goodness, that poor child. Sounds like a Maury show I saw once, where the children were 4-6 yrs old and all over 100lbs and the mothers refused to stop feeding them, or take them to a doctor.

She is in for some really rocky times when she gets older, and hopefully she doesn't resent her mother for not doing anything about it, or in a sense helping it continue…my thoughts with them both.
