Joyce, the worst part of all is cutting down on my desserts...I'm often afraid to do sweets, some can be disclipine enough to do moderation but I know me I have to go "cold turkey" with sweets...or else but thanks for your testimonial, it is a bit of a "wake up" call for me to get back on track.

My personal computers are bugged and I try to catch the boards whenever I can...lately I've been doing the libraries...so that's why I haven't been communicating much here...but thanks for the great advice. I will definitely have to buy some more strips, I've been out for about 2 mos. now....I'm so off track and there's no telling what my levels have been running.

Welcome Bev!

You can control your diabetes and may be able to stay off medication. Educate yourself, there are a number of great books out there, attend classes or meet with a dietitian and most importantly, test your blood sugar a lot. Learn how different foods affect you and adjust your carbohydrates to an amount your body can handle and remain within your blood sugar goals. emoticon

Continue to watch what you eat, and lose weight, and don't forget to drink at least 8 cups of water per day, exercise 20 minutes per day, and lower stress.

Good luck! emoticon

GEMSOFIDAHO is absolutely right! Talk to your doctor about a diabetes education class (you'll meet with a diabetic nurse and a nutritionist). There is so much information to be learned about diabetes as well as proper eating for diabetics. It's a whole new way of eating but it can be done to your advantage. I learned so much at my class. Want encouragement? Check out my last 2 blogs.

You can do this!

Hello Bev and welcome,

I can't say how much I encourage you to take the bull by the horns and do whatever it takes to get you to a healthier place. I was about your weight 15 years ago when I was first diagnosed, but never took it seriously enough. I'm now on three different injections, oral meds and am struggling with a weight that reached over 300 lbs!

The tools, resources and encouragement are here for your use and can help you to keep this diagnosis in check and more importantly get you to a healthier place.

Be sure to get support from your diabetic educator as well as a diabetic dietitian...both will be hugely important for your journey away from diabetes.

Good luck to you and keep us posted on your progress!

Take care,

Joyce emoticon

I'm new here to this group... and also new to the recent news given by my doctor of having diabetes. Right now the doc says I can possibly beat this by eating right and loosing weight. I don't take any meds. or shots, right now I'm just managing my food and weight.

I feel I might have found a great "spot" here for support, I'm looking forward to a successful outcome. emoticon
