|Erika after 11 months of better food, regular exercise and a huge attitude adjustment|
In the summer of 2015, I was diagnosed with type II diabetes. I decided that it was time to focus on my health and make some serious changes to the way I eat, cook, exercise and think.
I'm writing this a year later, and the past 12 months have brought significant changes. I've lost weight, but that's incidental and was never my primary goal. My diabetes is under control. I feel better, my lab tests are better, and I've found a lifestyle I can love for the rest of my decades on this planet.
In this series I share the mental, physical, logistical and culinary changes I've made as I've learned how to take better care of my middle-aged body and kick diabetes to the curb. I hope you find it helpful.
