I found out that I had pre-diabetes about 3 years ago. It happend about six months before my wedding so I was losing weight anyway and it kinda went away. BUT after getting pregant I got gestational diabtes and that stunk. I did really well though and my spunky little girl is healthy and happy! But with the stress of having a new baby, and moving to a new house, I'm now about 75 pounds overweight and need to get it off! :)
UPDATE: I am now a type 2 diabetic - but I am using Metformin, diet and exercise to get my levels down and get this thing under control!
UPDATE: My daughter is now 5 and my son is 2. I need to lose about 76 pounds (and I'm already down 10 pounds toward that goal!) Sugars got crazy high fast for some weird reason, and now we are trying to cut potatoes, rice, pasta and bread out of our diet as much as possible. Numbers are MUCH better on that eating plan!
Ok - I know that I haven't been on here in a while. We recently decided to start carpooling from out in Cocoa to Orlando everyday and it's a LONG time in the car for me. We get up at 5, get home by 7:30, and are in bed by 10:00 usually. I makes for some pretty long days!
Anyway, I had scheduled a doc apt for Terry and I to get our sugars checked, but I forgot to go in and pick up the new patient paperwork ahead of time so we lost our spot! Totallly…Continue
Get your daughters stomach flu! Whoopie-doo!

Terry's staying home with Harper today because she's still a little cranky and we…Continue
You know what's weird? I know EXACTLY when my downfall time of the day is.
I left for home last night at 4:45 with the full intention of picking up Harper, going home, and taking a walk with her. But somewhere between that time and getting home at 6:30 (yes, its a long commute when I have to go through a traffic heavy part of town to pick her up) my mind shuts off and my stomach takes over.
I got home and was starving,…Continue
I've been trying to be so good about walking at lunch time - but man! It's like a 100 degrees out there!
I was smart enough to bring a different shirt to work so I could change after I got all stinky and sweaty. It's nice to walk in the parks - everyone is happy and nobody pays any attention to you. Even though its a nice walk during lunch, it's not much of a workout. I'm going to ATTEMPT to take a walk with Harper and our 'new' jogging stroller in…Continue
