A JOURNEY TO A NEW ME... Jolie's Story!
Where did I go?
I looked in the mirror every day, and there she was, this stranger that was always staring back at me, she looked a little like me – in a distorted way, but it wasn't me, of that I was sure of.
I never questioned who she was, or why she was there, or how long she intended to stay--- I just let her stay. The longer she stayed, the further away I felt, until one day –I realized that she was more real than I was! I had been gone for years before I suddenly began to snap out of it, every morning when I saw her staring back at me, it made me mad! I began to get angry, she had been here long enough, it was time for her to go. I was sick of missing me… and sick of not being able to wear my nice cloths, sick of her getting bigger and bigger, and sick of me being gone.
It had been years since I recognized myself in that mirror, but this time I was determined to change that. It’s been a little over 6 months since I made that decision and in that time I managed to lose 44 Lbs., I still can’t recognize myself but at least now I know that I will be back soon.

Ten Ways Hispanics/Latinos Can Prevent Type 2 Diabetes
By the National Diabetes Education Program
The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is urging people at high risk for type 2 diabetes to take small steps to lower their risk for the disease and serious complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, nerve damage, and other health problems. Take the first step today. Ask your health care team if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes. Before a person develops type 2 diabetes, they usually have ―pre-diabetes,‖ which means their blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be called diabetes. People with pre-diabetes are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years and to have a heart attack or stroke.
Although Hispanics/Latinos are at high risk for type 2 diabetes, there is good news. You can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by making small lifestyle changes in diet and physical activity. Follow these tips to help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes: Read More!
