Getting better

So since my last post things have been getting better slowly but surely. While my average for the last 14 days isn't stellar (high 100's) I have tested an average of 3 times a day up from...well...less than that. On the eating front things are going well, more fiber and protien, less fat. I realized that I walk 7 miles on Tuesdays, 5 on Wednesdays and 5 on Fridays just by going to and from work (and half of those are straight up hill)!!! Last week I went to the gym twice and this week I have gone Sunday, Monday and today! I feel good. No real changes in my perception of my weight though, and I ahve decided to not look at numbers, go by feel of clothes instead. No need to get obsessed (it's happened before and got me nowhere). So that's where I stand. My basals and carb ratios have gone down and I am feeling a little more energetic. Procrastination could be the death of me adn I thank God that this is pretty much my last year of traditional college classes! Woo-frickin-hoo!!!!! Thanks for the support and kind words!

i'm a total dork, i know, but i wear a pedometer all day long! just because on work days, being aware of how active i am helps, seeing as if i am not careful, i end up sitting in front of a computer for 9 hours and not getting up at all.
so, i am a big pedometer enthusiast. haha. you should try it, it's fun. there are even weblogs that you can use to track your steps. i use walkertracker.com

My name is Marie Connelly and I'm the Community Producer at a new health website, WEGO Health [http://www.wegohealth.com/].

I recently came across your site and I've really enjoyed learning about your experiences with diabetes. I hope everything has been going well lately.

Because of your involvement within the Diabetes community, I wanted to get in contact with you to tell you a little about what we're doing at WEGO Health:

We recently launched and our mission is to identify, rank, and organize the most helpful health and wellness content online and make it easy to access by everyone. We need the help of people like you, with real experience with these topics, to review the material and help us decide what information is most helpful. We can then organize the rated content and provide the public with only the most useful articles to save them time. Pulling together good health information is definitely a team effort.

Our mission is articulated very nicely here [http://www.wegohealth.com/our-mission.html].

Below are a few pages that our research team has pulled together on Diabetes. As I mentioned previously, all of the content on our site can be rated and reviewed by community members. We also have discussion forums [http://community.wegohealth.com/group/diabetes].
