Visiting the Past, Looking Toward the Future.

I always find it interesting to see how people in my past have changed. My mom talks about friends from her past. Sometimes she wonders what they are up to and how their lives have turned out. I don't have to worry about that. With the internet and sites like Facebook and MySpace, I have managed to stay in touch with a lot of my high school and college friends. In fact, once I broke down and got a Facebook page, I had a couple of people I hadn't heard from or seen in the 10 years since high school that found and friended me.

Even cooler to find out that someone from your past is also a fellow blogger. :) Cheyenne was my sorority sister in college. She was our pledge class president and an all around great person. She was always a super hard worker and managed to get things done when no one else could.

Cheyenne is now blogging about her weight loss. She's lost over 50 pounds so far and I have to say I am very proud of her! I wish I had that kind of will power.

If you are so inclined, go check out her blog and welcome her to the blogosphere at Diary of a B.I.G. P.H.A.T. Girl.

That's my visit to the past, and now I am looking toward the future. My endo appointment is Monday morning. I've got my medical records from my former endo, I've downloaded my pump info into my computer, I have my directions for the to just get there in one piece and see what this doctor can do for me.

I'll admit I'm a little nervous about meeting this new doctor. I think that's normal. But I always wonder if the new doctor is going to think I'm doing an okay job with my care...or am I in for a tongue lashing about something... so keep me in all your prayers on Monday morning as I embark on this new part of my diabetes care and my diabetes life.

Also, I'm in the mood for change. I need a new blog design. I've been trying to think of some new designs and trying to search on some websites for some new designs, but I haven't had any inspiration yet.

Anyone have any ideas? Or any great website I could visit for a new design? Any help, advice or tips would be more than welcome.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Here's another cake I did a few weeks ago. Enjoy!

I'm definitely going to go check out your friend's blog. 50 pounds is quite an accomplishment! I'm having a hard time and I haven't even lost 10 yet!!

Best of luck at the endo today. I hope you hit it off with this doctor and he (she??) is just the type of endo you are looking for.

As for the blogs, I can't think of any sites off the top of my head. But I'll start looking around. And I'd be happy to help you in any way I can.

Good luck with your new endo! I hope it goes well. Having a good rapport with an endo is so important. As far as blog designs be sure to check out I love their stuff!! And it's FREE and super easy to use!
