@marvinjsturing I don't know how I lost control. When my feet gave out, I gradually went down hill. I had my husband put the treadmill in storage because I could hardly walk to the kitchen. I have been angry at myself for all of this. It's not like me; I've always been in control and strict with myself. I just gave up. I ignored my diet and said that if I die earlier or later, it doesn't matter. I've been trying to turn myself around and re-think the pros and cons. I finally decided to have my husband put the treadmill back in the house. I have to do it, even if only fifteen minutes a day. It helps and exercise is a key ingredient for diabetes. My numbers have been off the chart. My endocrinologist retired, so I didn't have to be accountable and quit everything. Now I feel more mad than ever for treating myself that way. I am going to start again today. I have diabetes and arthritis and neuropathy and fibromyalgia. That's too much for me because I was never a sickly person until I had to retire. I never saw it coming. But I have to take back myself and start again. Like before, if I begin today, by January 2020, I'll be ahead of all the exercise/gym people who do it a week or two because they made a resolution on New Years. My New Year starts today! Come along with me–just fifteen minutes.

@retiredteacher Our diabetes stories and lack of sticking to what we know we should do are very similar.
Today is my first day back to really trying, I hope.
As I once read, the day started out well, and then I got of bed. No more of that.

Happy new year to all of us with a tendency towards diabetes! May our 15- minute resolution work well for us!!

@retiredteacher Hi Carol. It has taken me some time to answer you. We bought a house that is closer to the grandkids and we have been very busy getting ready for the move which we are hoping will be the first week of December. After we get settled, I can start exercising again. Right now I am getting enough exercise just getting ready for the move. Don't be too hard on yourself. We all have set backs from time to time. It's alright. We just need to refocus and get "On The Road Again!"
