I found out I have Type 2 Diabetes in January. The upside according to the Dr. is that I can control this with diet, exercise and medication. So far I have come down from 296 to 238 in weight. My blood sugar has come down from 500 in January to 140 presently. I have until May 9th to get it down to normal. And I exercise at the YMCA 4-5 times a week.
I feel so much better. Rather than feeling old and tired. I now feel my age and full of energy.
A word to the wise: watch you carbs and keep them low not your calories. Your calories will follow the low if you keep you carbs low.
I just came back a week ago after a one-year absence, so I know how hard it is to get that train moving again. But it feels so good to be back in control! Good for you - glad you are back at it! 1008 days ago
