Hi, I'm Deb from PA. Was diagnosed 4/10/2012. My numbers are not too high, so I told the doctor that I really did not want to start on meds, but rather, try to control it with diet and exercise. She agreed, and I will be tested again in 4 months. My goal is to never have to take diabetes meds! I joined sparkpeople in September, but fell off the wagon. Time to get back on. I have been very overweight for about 25 years. I should have known better, since my dad was diabetic, as was his mom, my grandmother, that I never had the opportunity to meet. So, here I am, ready to get started. Thanks to all of you for being a part of this wonderful website and especially this team! Your stories are inspiring!
