My name is Chris, I am 31 and I was diagnosed with type 1 when I was 4. After receiving my pump at 21, I started eating whatever I wanted because I never could eat anything. After 10 years I had gone from 5'11" 140lbs to 5'11" 240lbs. I was no way obese but I was overweight. On my 31st birthday I woke up and said I am going to be healthy. I ran that morning and ate smart the rest of the day. I started riding my bike at night, at first I was riding 5 miles then I moved to 8 then to 12 then on the weekends I was riding 25 miles. I started eating fruit whenever my sugar dropped and I started dropping weight. In October, I weighed 185lbs. I trained for a 5k and finally had energy. . Currently I am 175lbs holding steady and in November I finished my first 5k run in 29 minutes and 49 seconds. All this change started May 4, 2012. Anyone can do it if they change their life and their diet.
