Mollie's 16th Diabetic Anniversary

Posted on September 8, 2009

Today I’m celebrating 16 years of excellent health as a diabetic.

We like to call it my “Diabetic Anniversary.”

Some people don’t know why I like to celebrate this day, but for those of you who know anything about diabetes, then you understand it can be very challenging to be a diabetic and be in good health. Since I am both, a diabetic, and in good health, I choose to celebrate my good health to let other young diabetics know that they too can have diabetes and still be healthy.

By the way, I always celebrate my anniversary with my twin sister Jackie and my family…by doing things I don’t normally do….such as splitting New York style Cheesecake with Jackie, after dinner.

Needless to say, I enjoyed every last bite and I didn’t feel the least bit guilty. :slight_smile:

However, I was a little sad when I realized there was only one bite left, so I did my best to cherish every morsel.

The good news is, my sadness didn’t last long…I went home, changed into workout clothes and totally went for a bike ride with my biking partners, Bear and Gracie. :slight_smile:

The evening is finally over, my bike ride brings it to an end, but once again, I feel blessed to be able to keep on riding.


P.S. My blood sugar was 102 before eating all this. How cool is this? :slight_smile:

Yep…pretty cool actually. Congratulations Mollie (and Jackie)! Keep up the good work. You ladies are beautiful. I wish you the best. PS… Bear and Gracie are so cute!

Wow Mollie! You celebrated in style. Since joining up to Tuville (as I call it) - I’m starting to think - “heck, I should celebrate my years of being diabetic!”. I’ve never thought of doing that - but it’s about time, don’t you think? Maybe I should come to Las Vegas to celebrate it with a few of you - a mutual anniversary of folks with the big D. Can imagine, banners flying thru’ the air being pulled by plane - hmm - I’m going abit over the top here I think !!! So, September 1968 - not sure which day I was diagnosed - but I should celebrate it soon!
BTW, love all your pics!! Especially your bike with your furry friends!!!
