I love working out more now that I belong to a 24/7 gym. What's funny about my workout today was while I was in there doing my morning routine an older man approached me and struck up a conversation. It began with the normal pleasantries, we spoke about the weather and what not and then he asked me how long I had been a member. Well I told him that I had recently been diagnosed with type II diabetes and needed a nice cool place indoors to run and lift weights. He stopped and looked at me, with a very puzzled look and said " Hmmm you don't look like a diabetic!" I laughed and said "Thanks"

I have no idea what a diabetic is suppose to look like! lol

I think that "they" think that you should look like you swallowed 2 children whole. or at least thats what i think but we come in all shapes and sizes.

I agree with you, I think there is a very large portion of people who stereotype Type II diabetics as "fat and lazy" including Doctors.

LOL Think I should go back in there with a hogie and a box of twinkies next time with a shirt that reads "Diabetic enough for you? " while jogging on the treadmill.

In order to be diabetic enough you have to have a syrup stain or two from the stacks of pancakes, hash browns and sausage you ate for breakfast. While you are at it make sure there are some crumbs or ketchup left in the corners of your mouth.
