Another great update from Eden!! Eden’s diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes came at the age of 17. After gaining a lot of weight & feeling she did not have the support from the health care profession she needed to empower herself. Eden set out on her own to learn & discover how to live life with diabetes beyond borders. Eden has a very busy life, finishing her degree at University as well as setting goals to manage her diabetes & lose weight in a healthy way before her graduation in May.
Support Eden as she moves forward daily in her journey to empower herself living with diabetes & successfully meet a weight that is healthy for her body. What she is achieving since being diagnosed 4 years ago is nothing short of amazing!
So yesterday was a big day for me, I wore a sports tank top while exercising! This may sound ridiculous, but I have never showed off my arms working out…EVER! The one and only time I did not have anything covering them at all was at my prom, and if you read my previous post…not my favorite time since I gained 30 pounds! At first I felt self-conscious, but then I thought no one is even paying attention to me. It was fantastic not wearing a hoodie while doing extreme cardio!!! OMG I didn’t get as sweaty and overheated….AMAZING haha. I felt confident that I could finally (in my mind) pull off this look! I will post a picture tomorrow.
Luckily I have one more week of classes left, and then I can start hitting the gym for longer periods of time, and really focusing on my weight loss! I would like to be at the gym for 1.5 hours a day instead of 1 hour. I am so excited to get this semester over with, since I have 6 university courses, gym, part-time work and balancing my time between 3 houses (my home, my boyfriends, and grandmas). I refuse to give up and I would like to be at least 158-160 before I walk on that stage to graduate. I am getting a dress in 4 weeks when I go to Toronto, and buying it smaller so it fits me perfectly on the big day” :)
