What happens when you weigh 400 pounds and are told you must change your lifestyle or your type 2 diabetes will kill you? How and where do you possibly get started when you don’t even know how you got here in the first place? How do you take that first step into the unknown from a place that is sadly and oddly comforting? What will you encounter along the way, and how will you keep going when the finish line is nowhere in sight? You will have to learn, all on your own, that the mountains you are stubbornly carrying are actually mountains meant to be climbed. From insulin shots to ultra running, Betsy shares, in her honest and often humorous way, the stories, advice, pitfalls and triumphs of her very personal journey to build a healthy new life. And what life is like today as a healthy, active, non-diabetic woman.
