I'm going to be eating better in 2017.

This is not entirely optional. I was recently diagnosed as diabetic (type II), and thus my long-term health is extremely dependent on keeping my blood sugar down. Fortunately, I was apparently on the right track even before my diagnosis, having dropped some weight over the past year through nowt but paying more attention to my food. I've lost more weight since the diagnosis, and am now approaching new-pants-and-belt territory, and firmly a resident of haven't-worn-these-jeans-in-years land.

I'm being very conscious of carbs, and avoiding sweets, and as of today my glucose numbers have been green for two solid weeks. Giving those things up has not been easy (I could totally murder some french fries), but it also hasn't been as hard as I feared. I can keep this up.

Diabetes is genetic, so while my bad habits certainly brought my condition to the fore, it was there all along. I'm posting about it publicly out of a desire to de-stigmatize the condition.

Here's to a new year, with new challenges, and may we rise to meet them.
