You get it. You just get it. No one else knows what you know.
Everyone in my family has diabetes in one form or another. Being diagnosed myself is a wake-up call for me. Now I have control so I (only) need to take metformin. My whole life is different now that I know how to eat. I thought I knew before but I was repeating my same mistakes over and over. Caroline’s ideas helped me execute my knowledge. I will never go back to a size 26. I like to look put-together, so I had to get my clothes taken in and they still don’t look right. I keep losing inches.
For me, it is about an inexplicable relationship with food. This demon is still not completely tamed, but it is quieter now that I’ve met with Caroline. It’s easier to breathe now, to eat some foods without anxiety. I feel freer.
The people I met in Caroline’s group will be in my heart forever. There is so much support and understanding, and everyone is going through the same thing I am. I would not have lost this much weight with this much fun without those friendships.
You inspired me…It sounds nuts, but I always hear you telling me to keep going. You’re that ‘can do’ voice in my head.
Thank you for all that you did for me. God has truly given you a gift to work with others.
Being here saved my life.
Caroline’s diabetes classes were fun. I always left knowing what to do, and I lost weight.
I spent so much money on weight loss before coming to see Caroline. I wasted money on (supplements) I didn’t need and (it) didn’t do any good. Caroline shows me that exercise can be fun. She won’t believe I said that.
