Hi I am Lisa 🙂
I’ve had Diabetes for almost 19 years…crazy. I suffered from both diabulimia and anorexia growing up, but have been fully recovered for 7 years. Now my passion is weight lifting, and I am on the pre-PA tract with a focus in endocrinology. I also hope to be a Certified Diabetes Educator in the future. Until there is a cure, I want to help as many people as I can 🙂
Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
I was told by a lot of doctors that intense exercise was not recommended due to fluctuations of blood sugars. However, I now max squat 185 lbs, deadlift 195 lbs and bench 105 lbs weighing at 110 lbs. Great to prove them wrong.
How do you inspire others?
I try to push the message that being healthy is critical, and you shouldn’t let a disease get in the way. I have had a lot of struggles finding a healthy balance where I can workout for health and not let it control my life, but now that I conquered my eating disorder. I want to show others who might have struggled that it’s possible to win. You can beat anything that is in your path of success.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
horse sized duck….let me at em!
