I find that it helps to have a goal in mind. Can you envision yourself as you would ideally - and realistically - like to be? What would be an ideal body weight? What kind of activities would you realistically like to be involved in? What would you like your average day to look like? Build that picture in your mind. And work backwards from there. What is it going to take to make that vision a reality? Make a list, and you will have the steps you will need to take to reach your goal. It might be helpful to talk about your vision of your ideal self with your healthcare professionals and enlist their help in creating a realistic, step-by-step strategy for making it real. Yes, the keyword here is realistic. Create a plan that you can feel comfortable commmitting to, that fits with your needs, capabilities, and lifestyle. Pull your supporters together -- including your friends on Diabetic Connect -- and let them know how they can give you help and encouragement. Set yourself up for success, not failure. And best wishes to you!

Hello my name is Tracy and I pray that I can be of encouragement to you. I do know what you may be feeling being obese and having diabetes too. I would consider myself to still be obese today,but not like in the past. What I am saying is I was 323lbs when I begin my serious quest to take my life back from the hands on the enemy. I put all mt trust in GOD knowing that prayer changes things. By HIS GRACE AND MERCY, I have been blessed to loss 100lbs and keep it off and still continuing the Godly mission for more miracles in HIS NAME. I encourage you to not get frustrated and talk it over w/JESUS and I come in agreement for you that the battle is already won for you too. Keep your head up high and know that I love you and GOD loves you the most. P.S. Place your picture in your profile as soon as possible.

You have come to a good place then. There are many of us who are working to loose weight and get better control of our diabetes. What are some areas you want to work in first so we can help out better?

Set simple goals for yourself and work on them one at a time. Counting and reducing your carbohydrates would be a great first step. After that, controlling your blood sugars will almost happen by itself.
