TOPOHOKO - - You CAN do this. Just know that you ARE NOT in this new journey of yours alone. We are all here to help you and to encourage you along your way in any way we can.

I wasn't on insulin such as yourself but I was you noticed I said WAS on oral insulin. After about the first 6-8 months, I was able to get off of those oral medications and have brought my BSs down to normal (I do, however, have a tendency to be hypoglycemic). All of my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are also now down to well within normal limits. I have lost 35+ pounds in the last 18 months. As for clothing sizes I have gone from a size 22W pants/shorts to a size 14-16 pants and from a 22W/2X tops down to a size L. Even my shoe size and gone from an 9 1/2 XW to a 9 W.

Not only am I pleased with myself but my doctor is astounded at the weight and size reduction that I have accomplished.

Be sure to weigh/measure and track everything that goes into your mouth. Start out by doing 10 minutes a day of exercise - - don't be afraid to break it down into 2 5-minute sessions if need be to start. The important thing is that you are moving.

Remember, you are NOT alone. YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!! emoticon and together emoticon .

I have been diabetic for over twenty long years. My goal is to get back on track. If I could start over again I would do things so diffrent, beware of depression, It can mess with sugars but I only tested 6-7 times a week being insulin depended I have lost most of the feeling in my feet except horable pain. so please watch for depression.
