The Journey Resumes

My struggle with type II diabetes has been going on for the last five years. Obesity has been another issue that I haven't really been able to resolve all my life although there have been many attempts, some that were partially successful, only to gain all that weight back.

Both of the above issues are linked. Also, heredity may have played a part in this for me, as my mom suffered from both diabetes and obesity. Diabetes took her life at a young age.

I know that there are millions of people in this world who battle these diseases continuously every day, with the hope that they are able overcome /manage the same, and are able to lead a healthy life.

My aim with this blog is to reach out to everyone, write about the things I am doing to eventually overcome my Diabetes (yes overcome it!) and stay within the golden 80 to 120 range. I have also set myself the goal of losing 100 lbs in the process.

I would like to share what worked for me in terms of diet, food items, and exercise as well as other helpful tips I may find on the web.

I would like readers who are suffering from diabetes or obesity share their ideas and experiences here, and we all can gain some inspiration and hope. Lets kick some ass on this disease so we can live better and stay healthy!
