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.
It is never too late to get healthy. There are many members here that started out just like you and are now off the meds. I bet you will find lots of support and advise (maybe whether you want it or not :rolleyes:). So jump into conversation, find a thread that speaks to you, or start one of your own.
We can't wait to read all about your progress.
