RENEEMITT,


Welcome. My diabetes has been controlled by diet alone for the last two years. The nine before that were on oral medication, but my numbers are actually better in the last two years.

My advice? Read labels and do nutritional searches on foods, then avoid grams of carbs like the plague. That keeps my diabetes under control, plus I lost 30 pounds.

James

"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!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

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 one mome

I've been back and forth as a "good diabetic" since my diagnosis in 2005, but am currently diet controlled, but know I need to lose weight to stay that way.

I thought I'd join back into this group (I think I was a member when I first joined sparkpeople long ago) and see if I can get some extra motivation and help.

Thanks for your time! :)
