Your at the right place. I was in denial for about a year and just to busy to deal with diabetes.. I finally got serious about it. But sounds like you are in a good place. Attitude is half the battle. Good luck to you. Walk Walk Walk that is the best thing you can do for yourself.

Hello Renee, welcome to the team! I was very upset when I got diagnosed. I joined every diabetic team I could find. Got a lot of information. Bought a book called Diabetes For Dummies, helped me a lot. If you have any questions please ask. There are some great articles here on Sparks about diabetes. Watch your carbs, keep a food log. I put everything I eat into the Nutritional tracker, really makes me aware of what I'm eating. Exercise and drink your water everyday.
