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

Awww, huts to you. I so appreciate it. AT times like this I remember something a dear friend said to me. "Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I remember you and your beautiful DD in my prayers too. You both have had a very tough year. Faith. Some days, that's about all we have!

HUGS and many, many thanks.

Hi TIsha,

So nice to hear from you!!! Sorry to hear that you are having back issues too. Mine have been going on for a few days. Feels more like sciatica but do have occasionally spasms. UUGGGHHH!! Not pleasant, especially trying to get work done all weekend!! Hopefully work will be winding down a bit soon!!

The back issues make exercise a bit difficult but I am trying it in 10 to 15 minutes intervals.

How are you and your daughter doing? Is she still working at that job? And tell me what else is going on!! We helped my oldest daughter and her husband move last weekend. (maybe why the back is hurting), younger daughter is still in Fargo ND and working and wants to quit and come home to look for a job. And my son is still here and now with his girlfriend who practically lives here. But that is okay because she is a real sweetie!! I told my son if he breaks up with this one, I am going to keep her and get rid of him!! LOL!! My husband is not traveling so much these days so that is a big plus for us!!

It's been a while so let me know what is going on with you!! How are you doing with the whole BS thing. I still have not lost too much weight...just not as easy this time around but BS are good and eye exam was good.

Hi Tisha, Yep still on the Metformin. My endocrine suggested it to see if it would help with the weight loss and so far it has not. Still can't lose much despite the increased exercise and watching carbs and calories. Occasionally get off track but not too often. How is your daughter doing with her hob? My younger daughter is still looking and has a phone interview today so I hoping she gets at least a face to face interview. She is working for an insurance company but would really like to find a job in her field. It is so weird that I heard from you today since I was thinking of you yesterday. Last night I emailed Barb and told her that I had started a few emails to both her and you and then got busy with work so saved them to draft and never sent any of them so I told her that I needed to email you and then today I heard from you. What a coincidence!! Now if I could only make it work for the lottery!! LOL!!

How are you doing other than the not sleeping so good? I am still not sleeping all that great! More tired during the day and then can't seem to get to sleep at night and when I do finally fall asleep I wake up several times. Will have to discuss this with my doctor when I see him in a few weeks.

Anyway keep in touch!! Love hearing from you!!

Have a wonderful day!!
