I'm a diabetic..

But my sugar counts are too high.. during the day time its a reasonable count but its the sober one that keeps me on 5 tabs a day,...
My doctor believes i can get off med.. but i went from 1 tab a day so quickly to 5 that I'm afraid i will never get off..

In holland i can't get all the food adviced on my tracker; and glucerna is not here, only an equivelent 3 and a half hours away with train and i can't afford that ...
I have a scale which converts pounds and ounces to kilo's & grams.. but not miniscule, from 1oz & 10 grams are the lowest.. so really precise i cannot be...
i do aprox guess work.. haha...
I'm also originally from England been here 30 years,
And being away from roots makes you wanna sometimes indulge in some comforting food that you grew up with; not alway's so healthy haha lol,..

I am small in height so my weight really takes a toll on me..
when i was pre diabetic i could handle myself pretty good without med and my weight was reasonable aswell;

Then the guy i was totally in love with for 20 years turned out not to be that guy and had decieved me in so many way's that i lost myself for a while in drink.. it took me a long time but through determination with only myself ( i told no-one about it ) i managed to get back to a stage that i only drink now with a celebration or if i fancy...
I feel a winner for that as i didnot need help from no-one..
but now with this diabete's and weight problem i am crying for help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

I have been on SP for nearly 7 weeks and am stil trying to get on the right diet..i track everyday.. and get advice to eat more calories, fat & protein.. I'm still trying to find a way how to do that, as i've never been a big eater & i eat pretty healthy food, so its pretty daunting to me.. But i do have faith in SP.. because of all the success stories.. and the motivation * inspiration & support.. I have learnt more here about the carbs &protein than 3 years with a dietricien here in holland.. so yes i have alot of faith...

I do feel better physically less hypo's..

I get at least 10 to 30 mins of exercise done a day (most days..lol..) with 1 or 2 video's from coach nicole, i walk with my bike to the shops and bike back with my shopping..so not too bad..... its just the scales don't move much....haha lol...
I also have a bowl problem which has got a little better on the cramps.. they don't accur so often..
Drinking alot of water a day is good but am in & out the bathroom all day..hahaha...
success to all on SP

TISHA, you can blend cooked meat with some warm water in a blender and drink it like broth. We used to give sick people BEEF TEA, that is what we called it. I understand where you are at because my permanent teeth were knocked out and I swallowed three of them. I had them extracted in my teens and gums take a while to get tough. HUGS Pat in Maine. I was swishing with warm water, it helped but I wonder what the dentist would say to that.
Take care and cover your moth if you go out in the cold, that another suggestion my dentist told me to try.

SWEETISHA1, you CAN change your info to use the metric system... I don't know if it was you I explained it to or someone else (LOL) so...

At the top of the START page in the upper left corner, click on Account/Email Preference, and look at the Information box where it asks for what country you live in. Just below "Gender" is a place to check mark "USE METRIC SYSTEM". Click on that, and DON'T FORGET TO SAVE the change, like I've done before! LOL

I'm so happy you found us, it's going to be fun having another person on the team!
