Just getting started. I just crossed the pre-diabeties line at 6.6 and need to get that under control and reverse the numbers. working second shift leaves little time to socialise so it will be great to have people in this stuggle to lose weight and get healthy. I have been married for 26 years to my husband Bill. I am hoping when he sees my progress he will be motivated also. Look forwards to starting this journey.

Hi Donna. It is good to hear from you again. Seems you are doing quite well keeping your blood sugars down. emoticon

My hubby learned what carbs need to be counted and how to adjust his insulin to cover carbs to be eaten and to level out his blood sugars. He learned what to do but has now reverted to guessing how much insulin he needs...seems it is just too much effort to look up how many carbs he is going to eat in a meal and then do the math to take just what he needs. I wish he would do it the right way as he would use less insulin and stay out of the insurance gap longer.

My sugars are also going up. I have to eat differently to control the gout flare-ups in my ankles and heels. Many of the things I eat to keep my blood sugars in check have to be avoided or strictly limited to keep the gout under control. If I eat for one thing I screw up the other.....looking for a happy medium. emoticon Sharon

Glad your blood sugar and things worked out for you. I am feeling so much better and thanks for your encouragement through all my struggles. Glad your winter blues are getting better. In a few short hours it will be February already! emoticon emoticon

Hi Donna. What a GREAT improvement in your blood sugar levels. Lowering your A1c from almost 7 to under 6 in a short time is fantastic. I think you are smart to decide to eat the same as your diabetic husband. It is a very healthy way to eat and it will keep your sugar levels in the safe zone. emoticon I am jumping up and down in joy for your good report. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I am so proud of you!

Hi Donna. It's good to hear that Bill's triglycerides are coming down. Isn't it funny how we take our whole life to get into the mess we are in but expect the improvements to come practically overnight. We have to remember that it took us years to develop our health issues so we need to give ourselves equal opportunity to regain our health.LOL I'm looking forward to hearing good news from you on your doctor's visit. Take care. emoticon Sharon

Hi and how are you doing? January is fast approaching and I can't wait to hear how you're diabetes checkup went. I have been type 2 since 1999 and so far have not had to take any medications for it. Diet and exercise makes all the difference.

Hubby and I went to a dietician and he finally knows what is carb and what is not. He is now on flexible insulin, which means that the amount of insulin he takes at each meal is figured out based on his glucose level pre-meal and how many carbs he is eating. He is doing great! His last A1c was 7.3 - a HUGE improvement.

Looking forward to hearing from you. emoticon
