Okay,so for those who I've not talked to about this, which is a lot, cause I think I've only talked to 5 people about it, tomorrow is a big day for me. After talking to a very great friend about some health issues I've been having, it has been suggested that I may have either pre-diabetes or full on diabetes. This doesn't really surprise me. Being an overweight latina whose mom and apparently dad's side of the family both have diabetes, I'm a prime suspect. So tomorrow I am going to go to the free clinic in Lake City to get screened for diabetes.
I realize that if I DO have diabetes, my life is going to change dramatically. Regardless or whether I am or not... there will be some really positive changes going on for me. First of all, I'm changing my diet to be more healthy. I'll also be getting a monthly gym membership to 24 hr. fitness, which is 4 blocks from my house. :D I'm going to be maintaining a steady workout plan and am going to be more conscious about things I put in my body.
If I do have Pre-Diabetes, and not full on Diabetes, I will fight to beat it!
Well, tomorrow is the big day...where I find out what's going on. :D
wish me luck and keep me in your prayers!
