The new me - in progress

I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in May of this year. Trying to control it with diet and exercise and so far so good. I live in Atlanta and have been married for 3 years now to a wonderful guy. I also have 2 grown sons from my previous marriage and expecting my first grandchild in March of 2015.

Update: Time sure flies. Just celebrated my 58th birthday, I have a beautiful one year old granddaughter and still very happily married. I think I'm finally getting a handle on my weight. After my A1c just kept going higher my Dr. recommended I try Atkins. Best thing I've ever done. My wonderful husband is totally on board with me (he has done it before) and keeps me on track. I feel better then ever, more energy, blood sugar is excellent, cravings are gone. 5 weeks in now and doing fantastic. It's not always easy but with the two support groups I have joined and the help of my husband I'm starting a new way of life and a new way of eating.

Thanks for your input Shirley. This is my second procedure, but with a different doctor. It's one of these big clinics where it's hard to get through. Primary doc just went ahead and sent the script when I wanted an endoscopy at the same time since I had some severe stomach problems about 6 months ago....Oh well. Electrolytes can't be that important if they told you Crystal Light. I have some Fit and Active lemonade from Aldi's I'm going to use. Been eating lemon popsicles so far.....

Hope you have a nice vacation....Up here in MI the weather is still in the 40's....

Joan :)

Hubs asked 5 years ago what I wanted for my birthday. I said to finally get the wedding done! my birthday was on a saturday and the courthouse we wanted to go to wasn't open on weekends, so we got married the day before my birthday, August 5th. It only took about 6 years to get it done!

I tried looking at all the office supply places (did you know they are all merging?). Index cards used to be made on 60lb or 80lb card stock, now they are 40lb at most. Posterboard used to be made on 110lb and now it's on 80 at most! I sure hope they don't start thinning TP the way they have every other kind of paper!!! emoticon
