a reformed diabetic talks about food, fitness training and life after diabetes

before and after

I’m back! I stopped blogging for a while to concentrate on life. As I’ve said before, I’m not really a writer, so blogging does not come easy to me.

For past readers, the blog is going to take a more personal tone as I will be writing about exercise, eating and ramblings about my life in general. I think living a healthy life includes good food, fun exercise options, being fulfilled in your career, and sharing your life with people who enjoy their lives.

One thing I never showed you—before and after pictures. So here goes:

At left, me at my heaviest. At right, 95 pounds lighter.

I’ve kept the weight off for over a year now. I still work out five days a week with three workout partners. I can’t emphasize enough how much easier it is to get motivated to exercise when you have like-minded people to share the thrill pain of working out. There’s a lot of encouragement and good-natured competition to keep you challenging yourself in the weight room.

For past readers: Many of you followed the antics of my corgi Frankie for many years on another blog. I wanted to take a moment to tell you that, unfortunately, Frankie became quite ill over the summer. She passed away on Oct. 24, 2009. I miss her a lot, but I know she had a full, fun doggy life.

    So very sorry about Frankie!
    Great photo juxtaposition! Did you actually find a second camera toting photo or did you have to rig that one?
