November Update: Goodbye to Diabetes

by Notorious Spinks on 11.12.2015


Hey y’all! It’s been a minute since I updated you on my progress. Life has gone well. Of course, I still deal with the chronic pain and fatigue associated with my PCOS, but I’m making it. I’m glad to announce that I am now diabetes-free. I visited my endocrinologist a couple of days ago and we went over my blood work. Since my diagnosis in March, I’ve sent 45 lbs. to the fat cemetery and my A1C levels went from 8.5 to 5.5. Can you see me doing splits over here?

Not to toot my horn, but I am really proud of myself because I did this without any prescription drugs. I’m just not about that prescription drug life unless it’s the last resort. Over the last six months, I have learned the importance of approaching health from a holistic approach. There is no use in putting a bandage over a gaping wound when you’re not treating the source of the wound. It’s a lost cause. I truly believe that in many cases, food is the medicine. If we change our diets then we change our lives. Simple as that.

If I’m fully transparent, I have to admit that there are days that I want to give up, but I don’t. I can’t. However, I shed tears. I pray. I emotional eat (I just choose low carb options instead of junk food). I keep going. Continuing to move forward is all I can do. Yes, there are days when I’m mad as hell that I have PCOS, but I understand that God is using me to advocate for, educate and inspire others so I’m good. It will all be worth it in the end.

In my efforts to support and educate people with PCOS, I am creating a new site, Holistic PCOS, this month. Our goal is to advocate, educate, and inspire women and girls suffering from PCOS to live an intentional, full and holistic life on purpose. Be sure to bookmark our new site and share it with individuals who are suffering from PCOS. More so, if you’re kicking PCOS’s ass, feel free to join our private Facebook group.

In the comments below, tell us what you’re doing to live a healthy, full and intentional life in 2016.

  • That’s such good news that you are diabetes free. My father has diabetes, and from what he goes through – I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. My best friend was diagnosed with PCOS, but I think they found a good way to manage it because she doesn’t have some of the same issues as before.

    Wow, you are a very inspiring person. Having discipline to your diet is a must when you have diabetes and other diseases which involve food and eating habits a lot. It’s nice that you realize that God is using your story as a way for people to feel that there’s still hope for them to get treated.

    That is so awesome, good for you. I have sever allergies, asthma and acid reflux and am ready to move on to a holistic approach. Sometimes I think Drs just want to rush you out with a prescription,

    That is AWESOME news. I’ve known a few other people who’ve managed to kick diabetes to the curb through lifestyle changes. My mom is NOT one of them and she’s now on insulin for life.
