Welcome and good luck! There is a ton of good info on this site including a new diabetes management program www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
nal.asp?id=SPARKGUYANDTEAM if you are not already familiar with this.
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 and welcome! Hopefully you've had some time to explore the site-I know it's a lot to process but we're here to help. Good luck on your journey.
It's not uncommon to go to bed thinking, "Darn, I should have run today." It's not common to go to bed thinking, "I shouldn't have run today."

Welcome! This site and team can definitely *elp you! I know ot has helped me.
Just keep exploring and don't be afraid to ask questions.
Fitness is a long Journey made up of baby steps, (think: toddler doing a marathon) so steady goes it! If you fall down: get up!

I agree with Don.. you have definately come to the right place... Welcome to the group!
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
You've come to the right place! Taking care of yourself is going to be at the same time modeling such important lifestyle changes for your daughter as well!

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.
