It IS scary, especially at first... but this is a great bunch of people, and if you just keep coming here and reading and participating, the team can teach you what you need to know. I like the suggestion of a diabetic educator. Most insurances will pay for that and/or a dietician... and most hospitals sponsor free classes if you can't manage that.

Follow the suggestions about drinking the water and exercising...Use the nutrition and fitness trackers here, and stay active, and you're going to be amazed at what you can do for yourself!

Welcome to the team!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Welcome!

You've already give 2 of my big habits that have helped: walk, and drink water.

Additions: track your food -- watch simple carbs (white flour, white bread, white potatoes, white rice . .. the starchy stuff).

Test your blood sugar often and eat according to what your body is telling you that you need.

Good luck! Have you seen a diabetes educator yet? That is so helpful.
