Default The Journey Begins

Greetings! 52 years young and starting the lifestyle changes necessary with a recent diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. I will be a 5 year survivor of endometrial cancer December 26, 2011. Learned I was spilling sugar in my urine, with a blood glucose of 257 on June 1, 2011. Since then, have not consumed bread, rice, potatoes, english muffins, cake, ice cream, or pizza. Quit cold turkey--on second thought--I eat a lot of cold turkey these days. Cravings are for dark chocolate and sugar cookies.

A small business owner, working at home, sitting in front of the computer most days. Found this site a couple of days ago, and I appreciate the support y'all give to each other. Support at home is mediocre, although the cat and dog enjoy sitting by the pool watching my new water aerobics routine. I'm in for the long haul, with a big goal to lose 94lbs. Currently 224lbs.

My favorite hobby is gardening. Our primary growing season is during the winter months in Florida.
