I first realized I had an issue with diabetes when I was pregnant with my second child. Unusual weight gain and a series of tests led me to be diagnosed with gestational diabetes. This has an onset during pregnancy and usually goes away after the pregnancy is over, however with each pregnancy, there is an increased risk of the child being born with diabetes and leaving the mother with Type 2 Diabetes.

Many years afterwards, it suddenly appeared again! Type 2 Diabetes! I thought I had beat it. I went on an extremely strict diet with almost no carbs, and started exercising like a fanatic until I had shed 50 pounds and it went away again.

But this last time, I wasn't successful in escaping it. I ended up with a regimen of medicine, monitoring my blood glucose levels daily, doing A1c bloodwork every three months and seriously changing my eating habits to foods that are much healthier but much more expensive. I had to give up some foods that I really enjoy but the good part is that it resulted in me fitting in sexier clothes! More importantly, I felt so much more alive than I had in many years. So much so, that I want to share this experience with anyone and everyone who wants to become a diabetes overcomer also.

If you are an overcomer, join me in sharing your secrets to success. Who knows... it may just save someone’s life or ease their journey on the road to recovery and prevent them from stumbling over some of the common pitfalls or challenge them to get motivated on their own journey to becoming a successful diabetes overcomer!
