I don't know what is wrong with my thinking process…I had foot surgery…didn't walk for like 2 + months…haven't been testing…I've been kinda watching what I eat, like no bread, noodles, rice etc… But I really need to get back on track again. I am such an idiot because I truly know how bad this disease can be from personal family experience.

Please feel free to give me heck - because I really need it…

Oh & my job stinks & its very stressful…

But I am getting back on the treadmill tomorrow night and I will start weighing my food again - making my own lunches…I can do this!

I think just about everybody with diabetes goes through this at least once in their life. You named three steps that you plan to take right away to turn yourself around: back on the treadmill, weighing food, and making your own lunches. You're right that these three steps will get you started and you're also right that you can do this! ~Lynn @Glucerna

Most of us have been where you are. We get off track, our diabetes train is derailed and we need to start again.

But why getting on treadmill TOMORROW night? There is NO time like the present. Tomorrow may get slid back to the next day and it gets put off to an indefinine time. (I know I am the king of procrastinators!)

Yes you CAN do this! There is a saying "The journey of 1000 miles starts with the first step." Take that first step immediately and keep on doing what you know is the best practices for diabetes control! Stay with DC and let us cheer you on toward greater and better results.

Praying for your success
