Jun 23, 2014 | 
The public perception of low-carbohydrate diets often involves mounds of bacon, piles of steaks and rivers of cheese.

Cheers to 20 Years
Jun 19, 2014 | 
I recently noticed these faint little crinkle lines at the outer corners of my eyes when I smile. They aren't deep yet, but they're ever so slightly starting to emerge. The funny thing is that I don't hate them. In fact, I'm kind of proud of them. They are proof that I laugh a lot. I realize that a lot of women are trying to get rid of these little signs of aging, though I think there are a lot of good things that come with age. I believe some of the best things about a person, is the life experiences they've had and the lessons that come along with them. I'm turning 38 this month. My diabetes is turning 20. Here are some things about my diabetes that have really gotten better with age.
Health Awareness vs Weight Conscious
Jun 18, 2014 | 
There's a lot of focus on weight loss as of late; not only in the diabetic community, but in the world in general. New ads for gyms and products claiming fast weight loss come out daily, women feel pressured to lose pregnancy weight within minutes from birthing their children, thin models are being airbrushed until they are nearly unrecognizable and diets are being undertaken without people understanding how/why/if it's really going to be effective. Some of my own friends are chronically doing near-starvation diets to shed weight. People seem to be focused on getting the fat off, but unless long term habits are improved, it's not going to stay off. It's great to fight the obesity epidemic, but we can't allow ourselves to go to the other extreme. Carrying excess weight isn't a good thing, but I think we're losing focus on the importance of health versus aesthetics.
