Diane,

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I just read your note and I want to thank you for your words of encouragement. Yes, I am new to this and did not realize and still don't really know how this works. I was trying to eliminate emails, due to space needed, and it caught my eye. Now I know what to look for. I need to find a way to get on here daily and use it. I wish they had people you could actually talk to on the phone.

Anyhow, thanks again. I do believe you can cure it if you have it as a result of weight gain, bad food choices over the years, which is me.

I ended up with a fever last night, small, but it kind of worried me now that I am a diabetic and overweight...flu thing:(

It looks like you do not have much weight to lose. Did you lose much weight? How are you managing? I am told that it is the carbs not necessarily the sugar intake?

Have a blessed Sunday. I could not attend church today due to my sickness. Thanks again, Barb

Hello Singtohim,

You are in the right place with the right mind set. I see you as victorious. Let me tell you what I was told by a nurse in a diabetes class that i took a few years back, that sometimes you do all you can do and this disease just acts up. She said it is just the nature of the beast. So stay focused and on target, but don't beat yourself up. If, you fail it feed back, just pick your self up and go again.
I just read an article that stated there is a cure for diabetes, walking. Diet and exercise. I am new to this site as well, and I want to encourage you and support you in you fight to take your life back so to speak. It is possible. I have joined curves and on my off days I walk. It is exciting to see the results. I lost 2 lbs this week. I have more energy. And, finally have my blood sugars under control. lets go team! emoticon

So, I am now a diabetic. I did not heed the warnings when I was a pre-diabetic. I was at first quite angry with myself for allowing this to happen. It is all because I basically have worshipped food instead of using food as a fuel to live healthy. I have no one to blame but myself. So I took a day or two to be angry and pity myself. Now, I am done with that and ready to start setting goals to lose the weight and thus reverse this dreaded disease. I have a choice. For that I am thankful. Not everyone is as blessed. But for those who are able to reverse this, let us create an alliance and help one another. I am new to this site and not exactly sure how to use it, but willing to learn and eager to get others excited to stop this disease from taking over our lives. Anyone with me? I have a 5 year old boy who needs me to be around so he is a lot of my motivation. Thanks for listening:)
