I Need to Lower My Blood Sugar
“If I had to sum up my life before I began my fitness journey I could sum it up in one sentence. I was one of living dead. My body was existing in a diseased state. My diabetes was out of control, I had a fatty liver, PCOS, Metabolic Syndrome, Hypertension, Hypothyroid Disease, and my lab levels were bad. I was in chronic pain and could not even sleep through the night because of it. I hated my body yet felt condemned to exist until I died which I perceived as a welcomed relief. I had tried ever fad diet on the market, been prescribed diet pills by my MD, and ultimately they all failed. I was a failure. I was killing myself every single day and I accepted this living tomb and I fed it whatever it craved. I felt myself becoming physically debilitated and then mentally humiliated when I could not fasten the seat belt on a plane.
There are three things that led me to change. My grandson was born in October of 2011 and I slowly came to the realization that I was going to die before he grew up. That broke my heart and I had the desire to change but didn’t know how. Second, in the summer of 2012 I went to the Dr because I felt so physically ill. I knew something must be wrong. My fasting blood sugar was over 300. I thought, I need to lower my blood sugar. I was already on several different medications as well as injection to treat my diabetes and now I was faced with insulin. I refused treatment. I was so sick and tired of taking pills and shots. Every Time I went to the doctor there were more prescribed. The cost was consuming a large portion of our budget. Third, I wanted to change when I go on a plane to fly to California and the seat belt would not fit around my stomach to secure me before take-off. I was humiliated.”
