to be the stewards for watchful and responsible care for those affected by diabetes in KentuckyDonate
There is no secret to overcoming diabetes, there is only learning how to fight through the highs and lows. There is only the realization that the disease is not going to go away and that you have to make the choice of whether it will take your chance at a normal life from you, or whether you will decide to push through it.
The reason for my story is to tell all families like mine that you CAN TAKE CONTROL and make a difference not only in your life but the lives of ones you love most. Diabetes is a disease that YOU have a choice to make a difference and change your life as my family did. It wasn’t easy, but my family chose a healthy future and yours can too.
I’ve inspired several people at work – the Dr. I work for is amazed – the nurses could not believe the change, my other boss was amazed! They are all starting to work out and watch their intake of calories/carbs. One lady has lost 54 lbs in the last 6 months. Also my greatest recent inspiration was my daughter, who is 32 and is 220 lbs. She has lost 15 lbs and comes out to walk with me when she can – that is worth it all.
