Big Landmark Yesterday


Yesterday, January 6, 2014, at about 8:20 am PST, this blog was viewed for the 20,000 time. That’s remarkable to me.  And, before I go any further, thank you.  We would not have made it without you.

I won’t bore you with numbers, growth, statistics, or any of the information I sometimes find so very interesting.  I will tell you that we will work to provide the information, encouragement, hope, and if required – cajoling, you need to Prevent, Delay and Control Type 2 Diabetes; that we will continue to provide you with the weapons you need to fight and win your War On Diabetes.  And, if you are like me and your weight is linked to Diabetes, we will offer common sense tips for losing and then maintaining a healthy weight.

One of the challenges with Diabetes is that it’s an invisible disease and is not always well understood.  Unless you have a wonderful support system, you can feel very alone, which makes it even tougher to fight.  There are no meetings.  No handshakes.  No tokens, medals or recognition are awarded when we are controlling the disease. And, while your friends and loved ones can be sympathetic – they don’t always understand.  Yeah, it can be a very lonely, quiet disease even if there are millions and millions of us out there.

But, it does not matter how many Diabetics there are in the country or world.  The most important one is you.  Our goal and reason for existing is to serve you; to help you win your War On Diabetes.  If you have an idea of how we can serve you better, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Stay tuned. 2013 was great. 2014 is going to be better!

As always, thank you for reading and spending a bit of time with us.  We appreciate it so very much.


I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!
