Its the sound of the underground, & we gotta fight for this love, before we breakaway, cos silence is golden, & its only words, & love will keep us together, on a night like this, wow, hey baby, my baby love, save your kisses for me, or its goodbye cruel world, forever & ever, goodbye my love.

These are all my favourite song titles, all put 2gether, as a kind of ode/poem, Melanie Louise Jackson (aka Grease 31)

My diabetes educator said that drinking water helps to dilute the sugar in your blood and you pee it out so I guess that is what is going on with you. I hope that all is going well for you and it sounds like you really have a lot of options for flavors. Thanks for your message. emoticon

Hi JIMJENMILLER,

I have to admit, that i have never tried the flavours, that you have written down, as your (favourites), they do sound lovely though, i know that when i used to go shopping on my Benefit Days (every 2 weeks), i wud buy what i now know are energy drinks (i thought they were just ordinary diet drinks), i wud buy loads of them & drink them all in 1 go, but since i was diagnosed a Type 2 Diabetic April 16th (this year) i no longer buy the energy drinks, i just buy Diet Drinks/NAS Squash/Cordial Drinks instead, even though whenever i drink them they always make me have 2 go 2 the loo, as i keep on peeing sugar all the time now!!!!. emoticon emoticon emoticon

If I use any flavors in my water I like strawberry, watermelon/strawberry or raspberry flavor. I don't really have too much of a problem just drinking plain water but I do occassionally like a change of pace. The hardest thing for me have been stopping the coca cola because it's the real thing or nothing. No diet pop for me. But to be honest I feel so much better now so all that sugar and caffeine must have been really bringing me down.

Hi JIMJENMILLER,

Thanks for your message, what i meant by squash is various fruit flavoured cordials, (no added sugar varieties), my favourite is sherbet lemon no added sugar cordial, whats your favourite flavour?. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well I think that adding the flavors to water to help you drink it is okay as long as they don't contain sugar. There are actually a lot of sugar free options out there for that. I'm not sure what you mean by "squash" but I am assuming you mean flavors. I have some days where I really go crazy with carbs. I am finding that I don't have to go to extremes in that area so far. My fasting bs is good everyday. I am also finding that the metformin is helping me lose weight. It does say to eat when you take it. The pharmacist told me that also but sometimes I don't because I take it with my pm meds too. I sometimes have really bad days where I am not eating healthy at all as well. It seems easier not to. But, I am also noticing that I am not having as much trouble jumping back in the game the next day. This is going to be a day by day process and taking small steps is by far working better for me. I fail quickly if I take drastic steps. Hang in there.

Hi JIMJENMILLER,

Thanks for your message on my sparkpost page, i'm finding it really difficult to eat healthily & drink lots of water, as i cant drink it on its own, i have to add squash to it (various flavoured squash), which makes it easier to drink when i take my medication (metformin included). emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi! I'm Jennifer. Just got diagnosed in March myself. So far so good. I mainly stopped drinking pop altogether. Lost 10 lbs in a month. Still losing slowly but surely. Trying to get more exercise cause it help burn glucose. Also really trying to cut my carbs. Not real easy to do but my Fasting blood sugar has been good every day. I say test, test, test. Wait 2 hrs after meals. This will tell you if something you ate spikes you. What was your A1C? I am just over the edge myself so hopefully it will go down next time. Just try to get away from the refined sugars. And work on lowering those carbs. The nutrition tracker on SP is a super great tool to help you with that. Also drink lots of water. Good luck and God bless you!
