I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in May of this year. Trying to control it with diet and exercise and so far so good. I live in Atlanta and have been married for 3 years now to a wonderful guy. I also have 2 grown sons from my previous marriage and expecting my first grandchild in March of 2015.

Update: Time sure flies. Just celebrated my 58th birthday, I have a beautiful one year old granddaughter and still very happily married. I think I'm finally getting a handle on my weight. After my A1c just kept going higher my Dr. recommended I try Atkins. Best thing I've ever done. My wonderful husband is totally on board with me (he has done it before) and keeps me on track. I feel better then ever, more energy, blood sugar is excellent, cravings are gone. 5 weeks in now and doing fantastic. It's not always easy but with the two support groups I have joined and the help of my husband I'm starting a new way of life and a new way of eating.

    And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
    Hebrews 10:24-25

    The most inspiring piece of advice I've gotten is simply to persevere. Always keep going no matter what. When it feels too difficult to push forward, I always remind myself, 'This too shall pass,' and then I redouble my efforts.
