First – Thank you for coming to my blog and taking the time to find out more about me. My name is Eva, I am 35 years old and I am a Type 1 Diabetic. I just got married and live with my husband Brian on Long Island in New York. You will hear me mention him a lot in my posts ?
I was diagnosed with T1D right after my 6th birthday. I have had this disease for 29 years and in those years I have been through it all. Loneliness, Shame, feeling different, hiding my T1D and the biggie; disordered eating. I lived with this for almost 20 years until one day something snapped and I began my journey towards recovery. Recovery was a long, challenging road with bumps along the way. I am very proud to say I now have a healthy, happy attitude towards food, diabetes and my body. I understand how to fuel my body so I get the most out of it and have controlled blood sugars. I still have my highs & lows (pun intended) but I feel very thankful for my life.
Along the way I developed a passion for food, health, and fitness because I love to feel amazing! In this blog you will find posts about my life, daily eats, fitness, recipes and reviews to name a few things – mostly relating to T1D, low-mid carb living and clean living. I will take you along on my new journey where I live beyond disordered eating but do not forget about it. I would love to help other Type 1 Diabetics that are facing or overcame the same issues I did. Please feel free to contact me any time if you need help, have questions or for advice – I am an open book!
You can live a fun, healthy, long life without missing out on anything – we have to work a little harder but I think it makes us appreciate everything more!
