Diabetes Self-Management Blog

This week, we’d like to direct your attention to the new blog http://ocnewme.blogspot.com, home of the “O.C. New Me Challenge.” This challenge, created by Diabetes O.C. blogger Allison Blass, encourages people to challenge themselves to lose weight, lower their HbA1c levels, or both over the coming year by wagering a minimum of $5 on their outcome. Every month, prizes (including a one-year subscription to Diabetes Self-Management magazine) will be raffled off to people who meet incremental goals.

Sign-ups close tomorrow, so click on the link above to visit the blog if you think you may be interested in joining the challenge.
