Aqua hubcaps


Since I was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, about 6 weeks ago, I have lost 10 pounds. I am not dieting. I am eating three meals a day, and still drinking beer. I am not so much grossed out at breakfast. I am eating good, organic, and fresh food. I totally cannot believe that I have lost so much weight.

My goal is to lose 50 pounds by the end of the year. I think I can do it. 

My sweet friend Kristin came today and helped me clean my sewing room. I hate a messy sewing area, but because of my lower back pain and a sudden tendon-pull in my left ankle, I am so unable to straighten up by myself. We found some treasures amid the rubble and also got rid of a great deal of trash. There is also the give-away pile.

My blood pressure is near normal, and my blood sugar is better, but not where it needs to be. I am sure my cholesterol is better, too. My mood is generally better, thank you Ms. Sunlight. I still have my 'icky' days, the low-energy days where all I want to do is sleep, but generally, I'm OK. And some days? I sleep. A lot. 

I am not eating pizza, or weenies, or french fries. And I don't miss any of it. Still taking pictures, though.

Hooray! I'm so glad to hear that things are going so well - you are doing a great job of taking care of yourself, as you deserve :)

Just catching up after not following blog for a good bit. Hate that you're feeling so shitty, happy that you're wrestling w/all of the physical and mental demons. Welcome to the world of the aging body (that's a birthday greeting) and the challenges of 'managing' your aches and pains. I find deep breathing helps a lot especially if done w/simple QiGong movements. I've become a movement freak these days w/TaiJi, QiGong and Feldenkreis but it eases the way thru the week. Keep up the fight. It's worth it.
