PENNYMCGAHEY,
I was on oral medication for type 2 diabetes for nine years. Pills around every meal. What a constant reminder that you are unhealthy.

Thankfully my body still able to manage food without the need for those medications. I don't eat what I did before, but I enjoy what I eat more, and a whole bunch of new things that I didn't used to eat. Over two years without medication now.

Best Wishes on your making changes.

James

You can do it! I was diagnosed a couple of months ago and my blood sugar readings are usually in the 80s and 90s, unless I indulge in some extra carbs. I'm on meds, but only half of what my doctor originally prescribed and I've been losing weight. My next visit with her is at the end of this month, and I'm hoping for a really good A1C reading and to eventually get off all meds.

"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

That is what I told my co-worker, "after this Holiday" I need to get back to where I was when I was first diagnosed at the beginning of the year! I did so well the first 4 months and then major stress happened for the next 3 and my sugar has been out of control. For most part, the stress is gone, but still have times where it comes back for a day or two and I eat all the wrong foods. At least I can say I haven't gained any of the weight back I did lose! But that is only part of the problem. I need to get my BS lowered before I go back in for a check up! I don't want to be put on any other meds.

You know, with your attitude you CAN do this! I was in the same spot and I did. Thought it was impossible in the beginning. Well, it isn't easy, but taking it day-by-day you can do it.

Always keep learning! That's the secret for me. Always learn newer and better ways to take care of yourself. IT makes a difference.

Be sure you read the threads on this site. They're informative.

Love is the root of all things good in life.
