I am not a health profession. I am Type 1 diabetic (16 years) with a few extra pounds to lose and a desire to share the journey with others! My advice, tips, meal plans and exercise plans work for me, with guidance from my team of doctors, diabetes educators, dietitians, etc. My successes (or failures!) are my own. I don't intend for any information that I provide on this blog to be a replacement from seeking a sound professional/medical opinion. I simply want to share my story in hopes that it will provide you with information or motivation to make changes in your own life. But, you do have my best wishes as you embark or continue on your own journey!
