My name is Barbara and I am new here. And a newly diagnosed diabetic. I am taking metformin. I just started on 500 mg on Wednesday so when I say I am newly diagnosed ... I mean it. My numbers are not good yet but hope to get them there soon.
I am not thrilled with the amount of carbs they are suggesting I eat at each meal so am considering doing low-carb.
I am confused, upset, angry ... and ready to get started, if I only knew how to do it! I know about Atkins (and did the induction part once,, a LONG time ago). I didn't stick with it. I don't want to pay for South Beach online at this time so am looking for support to get this moving on my own.
I also have three teens that eat me out of house and home so will have to be semi-frugal at the grocery store and tell them to leave my food alone!
