Hello my Diabetic Sisters

Posts: 0

Hi. My name is Heidi. I have been a type 2 diabetic since 1/2005. I sure have had my ups and downs with this darn disease. I'm sort of on the burnt side. My numbers have not been good at all and I quit smoking 10-8-18, so I have gained weight. I was about 20 pounds over weight before I quit, but it wasn't that big of a deal to me, but now I probably have 35-40 pounds to lose...UGH
I am hoping to meet some of you ladies so that we can encourage each other with the horrible disease.

Hi Heidi and welcome!!! Congratulations to you on quitting smoking - that is FANTASTIC!!! Be very proud of yourself! 

I find it can be hard to fix everything at once - give yourself credit for working on the smoking. Once you feel like you have 100% passed that hurdle, you can work on blood sugar numbers. Or taking some weight off. But one thing at a time - personally I have found that key to not getting overwhelmed and discouraged.
