When I began this journey the medical industry claimed diabetes was a debilitating disease with deteriorating health and increasing pain and suffering. Once again… they were wrong. It doesn’t have to be that way

11 Year Diabetes Check Up

Very Low Fat Diabetes Experiment: Phase 1



Have you heard of, "24 hours of Le Mans!?" ... this is nothing like that. LOL! :) This post will be pictures of blood sugars, activities and foods for one day. I'm going to try to take blood sugar readings every hour or two once the day begins. Hopefully it will be more helpful and inspirational than the race. Purpose: To educate, motivate ... and perhaps entertain. :) Note: At the end of this post is a Google Doc that is embedded in the sheet. Just 'refresh' the page to see 'real time' results. Isn't this exciting!!! :)

Jan 3, 2012 Update Brendan Williams (my nephew) will be undergoing a  kidney transplant today in Chapel Hill, NC. My Sister-In-Law Terry Westbrook will be donating a kidney as well today. Thoughts and prayers are welcome. Update: On every level this event was a success and though I played a […]

Update: Eastern NC Benefit for Brendan Williams


I imagine it's like that for millions of other diabetics who are still addicted to sugar and carbs, all it takes is a one 3rd party verification ... a doctor, etc. Diabetes lesson learned.
