Hi everyone, I was just diagnosed Type 2 on Wed (3/10/10) and boy am I overwhelmed. Looking for help, advice, support.. anywhere I can !
*DR inst starting me on any meds , wants to try Diet and Exercise. 1st
* no test strips or Meter, and that confused me alittle.. how will I know if the changes I am making are working?
She will retest in 3 months to see where I am at.. but Id like to see progress.
I'm also struggling with food choices.
I am about 50-60 pounds overweight, not active at all. So I knew the changes were needed before the diagnosis, now its Not a Choice, its Needed !
I'm hungry, I feel weak and sort of dizzy.. is that normal when you start making changes? Will I always be hungry or will my body get use to the new food choices? I have been eating.. just not the usual burgers and fries and m&m's. Had yogurt,fruit and fiber cereal for breakfast. a very small roast beef sandwich and greek salad for lunch. Apple for snack, 1/2 bag of smart pop popcorn ( and a few peanut m&m's.. bad I know, but I felt so weird I needed some sugar) So its not like I am starving myself.. but Im so hungry :(
UGH, feel so depressed, discouraged and disgusted with myself for letting it get this way. I dont know if it is hereditary, as I dont know my Bio-Fathers family history
Sorry for so many questions. I'm confused and so much is going through my mind.
Thanks so much,

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. - Emerson
