I've been a diabetic for over 4 years. I have lost a lot of weight and managed to pretty much get my bgs close to normal most of the time. In the last 4 years I haven't been shopping much except for new jeans or exercise clothes. Well my daughter ( my baby) is graduating from college this weekend, so I decided to treat myself to buy a new dress. I went to Dress Barn and had a ball trying on dresses. I didn't even recognise myself in the mirror, I am a totally different person. I hate having diabetes but if I had never been dx'd I would never have pushed myself to give up carbs. The smallest size they had was size 4 and some of the dresses were too big. I actually had problems finding styles small enough. It is nice to have a few things that actually fit me and show off my flat tummy. It has been a lot of work, but it is definitely worth it. Sometimes Diabetes gives us the motivaion to do things we wouldn't normally do.
