OKAY, Here Goes:
there are many things that i have learned to do along the way that have helped me to feel unlimited. However, the greatest thing i’ve done to show me that i can be Unlimited is my swimming. after the long haul of dedication and devotion, willingness, and blind trust and encouragement from our wonderful community, i learned to dare myself one day at a time. it was a slow process. but, i never quit. recently, i have achieved what i thought was totally impossible: daring myself to get into the pool with BG numbers below 100.
last night, i had planned to go with my husband to eat Japanese food for dinner. when it came time to leave the house and walk 20 minutes to the restaurant, my BG was only 65. i thought, F-it. we should just bag it for tonight (we had a commitment right after dinner and had a tight window wherein we could squeeze our dinner, so i didnt have the luxury of waiting out the time it took to raise my BG with juice or some other fast carb.)
my husband said to me, “WTF, just take 2 tabs or some Jelly Beans and we’ll walk over, and by the time we get there, you’ll be right back in target.” so, i dared myself and just went for it. in the past, i would never have left the house with a BG of 65 for a 20 minute walk!!!
another thing that i have been doing to dare myself is eating strange foods where i dont know how on earth to bolus for. i just take a wild, somewhat experienced guess and enjoy the food!!! i used to only eat what i knew would give me “safe” and “expected” results.
this kind of stuff is HUGE for me. and it all started bc i wanted to swim!!!
so what’s your story? and, what dreams and goals do you have for yourself?
