I understand about wanting be a good example for your DD. I have a 6yo and I want her to have the tools to grow up healthy and fit! The more you can involve her in choosing and preparing healthy foods AND in your exercise, the better for both of you. My daughter wants to run with me and when I recover enough from my operation, we are planning to do some jogging, and she likes to sit/play on an exercise ball . We both like chocolate WAY too much, but we are learning to have a little bit of nice dark chocolate instead of piles of cheap stuff.

Hi everyone-I am new here so thought I would tell you a bit about me. I am a 42 yr old SAHM who has recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I have struggled with weight issues my whole life, but now with the Diabetes, and an 8 yr old daughter to take care of- I need to make some changes in my life for the better. I would love support, as I lack in self confidence and control.
