Hi there! We don't seem to be a very active group here at the moment, but welcome all the same. My goals are pretty similar to yours. I am almost 32 myself and have had type 1 for 20 years. Starting a new exercise and eating habits sure does throw a wrench in one's treatment plan, but I actually find that too be a good thing. I was low almost constantly for the first two weeks since I started back up with Sparkpeople and exercising more, which really forced me to re-examine all my pump parameters. I tend to get lazy about tracking and reviewing my bg and pump data when there aren't big changes. I still have control issues sometimes, but I think my control is on average better than last year. Progress over perfection.

Hello, I am 32, diagnosed 27 years ago. Have lived most of my life with this special gift we all have. I'm looking to lose somewhere between 15 and 35 more pounds, with the main goal of being "fit" regardless of what that equals out to on the scale. I am looking to do that through a pretty steady approach. I am logging my food, exercising daily, and limiting processed foods as often as I can in my busy lifestyle. I wear an Omnipod, and occasionally hook up my Dexcom as well. I do struggle with control. When my diet habits are going well and I'm feeling pretty content with my nutrition is always also when I suffer the worst lows. Still searching for that balance. which is hard to get when I am changing my diet up and introducing exercise more and more.

Looking to hear from more T1DMs and hopefully find some ways of supporting each other.

The journey is the destination. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
