Name Change

Originally, I had planned only to blog about my weight loss during the challenge me and a few friends started and things drastically changed.

I found that through blogging, I have connected with some great people with diabetes, learned a bunch about my disease, and have been "born again" in my way of thinking about "the bete!"

I only have all of you to thank for this new focus on my health and life. For 15 years I have been taking my shots, going to the doctor occasionally, and checked my blood sugar but never really moved on beyond that. I have sort of ignored the fact that i am a diabetic and that i am not like everyone else. This is a good thing.

I realize that I can do whatever I want in life but that I must recognize that I am diabetic and I must take some precautions that I have never ever considered.

I hope anyone who reads my Blog will post there thoughts and suggestions. I need all the support I can get!

My next appointment is on Thursday and I am freaking out! I will let you all know what happens with my Doctor on Friday. I may need some help finding a new one.

Hey G-Money!

I like the new name! B.A.D - in a good way. Very cool.

I updated the link on my site. Thanks for letting me know.

I imagine your book should show up this week sometime - I think you'll like it.

Talk to you soon!

I was about to say, why are you so down on yourself, you're not a bad person...then I saw it was really an acronym. Very clever.

Good luck at the appointment. I hope he doesn't give you a hard time about wanting to go to an endo. I'm telling you, it's the best thing you could do for yourself to start up your new way of management.

I look forward to the update.
