Welcome Marge (GRAMMYX7).

I've had type 2 diabetes for 9 years. I've been controlling it with diet alone for the last 2 years. We can probably trade cooking ideas, but you might be able to help me more than I can help you.

My rough rule is to only buy/eat foods that are 6% net carbs by weight or less. Why not 5%? Well blackberries and strawberries are 6%.

"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

Welcome Marge, Glad you have joined us. I am so proud that you have been managing yours without medication. That's great. emoticon
I am hoping to possibly get off the meds someday. Still have a ways to go though.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Hi Marge, and Welcome!
You can do this, and it requires knowledge, planning and tracking everything you eat. Learn how your diabetes and your body reacts to what you are eating, drinking, exercising, stressing over, - track everything.
The Nutrition Tracker here on SPARK is my favorite. You have to list it as Diabetic. It will give you, and your Dr. ,a good idea of how your body handles things. It has a spot to enter your blood glucose reading too.
Wishing you Strength & Luck!

You've Got This!

Hi. My name is Marge , 64 years old and I have Type 2 Diabetes. I have had it for about 7 years and have just been able to control it with diet, not on any meds and really want it to stay that way. I think sometimes when we aren't on meds we just brush off the seriousness of this disease ,almost like denial. I don't want to feel that way. I want to be in control of it and my health.
I decided it's time to get serious about this and do something about this.so I am rejoining this group to join to get and gives advice, ideas, support and maybe even healthier recipes. Sometimes when we are not on meds we aren't quite as diligent in our eating and care. as we should be. I want to stay healthy and be around a long time for myself and my family.
This is the first day of the rest of my life.

Looking forward to new beginnings and new friends.
Marge
