My name is Bill, and i'm newish to FitDay. Well, I dabbled with the tools a few years ago...now I'm back and serious.
I'm 43 and have been diabetic for about 13 years now. I never took great care of myself, off again on again with my meds (and the intestinal distress that comes with inconstant Metformin use) but I never experienced any major problems other than mood swings or bad breath because of my diabetes.
Well, things have changed.
My triglycerides are so out of whack, i have bumpy portrusions on my skin from the excess in my system.
I am having the burning sensation in my little toes...probably the start of diabetic neuropathy. (I see my doctor this friday and examine my feet multiple times daily)
So. I can no longer be in denial. I need to lose weight and get my blood sugar under control. I'm starting by logging and being aware of what I eat and fitting in walking a mile during my work day...more exercise later as I build up to it.
Anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.
Bill 43 yr old, 5'8" 210 lbs.
