"Diabetic Health and Your Body"

As many of you know I'm a diabetic since 2007. I like many other refused to believe I had this disease. I now know without action this disease can kill you...! So on Thursday's my site will be dedicated to helping those of you that have this disease. I will be getting with my son and he will be taking pictures of the food choices I now make!

 This is my journey along with you...I don't want to die been a challenge to myself is to live the best life possible by been informed.....!

 I have a 100 pounds to lose and I will like to be fifty pound lighter by August....Safely! 

My bestie friend Sue, is getting married and I refuse to be heavy for her wedding...! So I will let you all  know about the super foods that I find out there for us to eat by following a regiment that's healthy! One super-food I'm hearing about is organic fax seed. We all know before adding or taking away from your diabetic food choice you must talk to your Doctor.....! I'm adding a recipe for today for my journey which include making my own breads and other foods. 

So as we stay healthy together I look forward to sharing blog information so you can stay on this journey with me...!  On Saturday I will be making this bread hopefully I will have some picture for you!
