Hello everyone!
I am a happily married father of 2 teen girls, and have had type 2 diabetes for over 12 years. I am an avid outdoors lover and especially enjoy trips with my family. Recently, my blood sugar levels have improved, but I still have discipline issues at the refrigerator and the gym. I look forward to meeting people here and hope we can encourage each other to meet our health goals!

I love your profile picture! You seem like a guy with a great sense of humor!

I've only been diagnosed as type 2 for three years, but my husband has been a type 2 for about the same number of years as you and he's had some permanent problems because he didn't take his diabetes seriously. With my dear husband as a horrible example, I take my diabetes very seriously indeed and try hard to manage it.

I myself just started using this site in July, and I'm finding it a big help at bringing my fasting glucose down. Once I started tracking what i ate, I saw how my little treats added to my carbs for the day. When I cut out the treats and kept my calories down, and started going to the gym 3-4 days a week, I started to lose weight and my blood sugar improved a lot!

From your page, it looks like you like getting outdoors too. My husband and I go hiking almost every weekend here in southern California. I like getting my exercise that way more than going to the gym!

You've got a great attitude, and I know you will be successful!
