Very Old, Very Healthy Diabetic

...or die trying.
I was diagnosed in 1998 at the age of 33 with NIDDM or Type 2 diabetes. I come from a diabetic clan. I even married a diabetic. Are you on the diabetes road, too?
This is my goal: to become a very old, very healthy diabetic by day to day choices regarding eating, exercise and medical management. Walk along with me...

I wish it were a joke.

Have you heard this one? Two diabetics walk into the bakery department on a saturday night....

Well, there goes all my credibility for advocating good health for persons with diabetes.
As I keep telling my Uncle Pesky, I do think that the central question of the disease and the lifestyle treatment for Type 2s is CHANGE. How do you change the habits of eating and activity that got you here? Perhaps, earlier in life, this Saturday night photo might have included an entire cake, rather than four pieces. Perhaps, earlier in life, this photo might have included a gallon of ice cream and some cookies, too.
Is it an improvement? Maybe.
Is it ideal? Gosh no. No way.
Is it real? Very real.
You should have seen Dr. Parts when I whipped out the camera and took the photo.
Maybe we should have a weekly check-out shot for the blog. Hmmmm. I might have to think about that one.
