It may be the season of cheer for most, but this is a dangerous time for diabetics. I find it impossible not to put on weight, and weight, for a diabetic, is a killer. What can be done? Only what you have done to lose the weight. Same thing is necessary to keep it off. Your stomach has a wonderful memory. It knows what it likes and so informs your brain on an all too regular basis. But you know that you can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. Toughen up. Read Marcus. Stay strong. Its not so much length of life that’s in play here, but the quality of life. Dying the death of a diabetic is a horrible death. Something will take us out, some day, but let it not be diabetes.
I am thinking of starting a support group that would allow us to lend each other strengh during these times. Perhaps by next Christmas I can get something set up.
