...by my second doctor (he's the one that I "dread" goin' to...all my sistas up hurr gotta know what type of doctor visit I'm talkin' 'bout--lol) that I'm a diabetic. However, the good news is that I may not have to even take the pill for it right now. He's settin' up an appt. for me to go to my regular doctor juss to make sure things are okay for now. Anyhoo, he told me that as long as I continue to keep up the good work with my diet and excercise (lost 18 pounds since the end of April and 3 dress sizes makin' it a total of 30 odd pounds lost since last September ) that I should be fine without havin' to go to medication and/or needles to control it. I ask that you all continue to keep me in your prayers. Thankx.

^^^ I hear ya, girly. But in my case, I was told that my diabetes was brought on b/c of my weight as well as genetics b/c both of my parents have it and both sets of my grandparents had it. The weight loss part wasn't so hard to do as far as cuttin' out what I had to eat though (mainly sweets which I can't stand to eat anymore because everything is TOO sweet when I try to eat anything with sugar in it now since I cut sweets off cold-turkey). I also had to cut a lot of salt from my diet b/c of my high blood pressure too. For me the hardest part was startin' to excercise but ova time it's gotten easier although my brotha and sis are still tryna get me to go with them to the YMCA every evenin'. I been too lazy to do that juss yet though--lol. I think for rite now I'll stick to my own excercise routine since it seems to be workin'.
