I was officially diagnosed this morning with Type 2, and it's hereditary from both my grandmothers and my mother, so the odds were already stacked against me. I eat very well and I am active. I guess I'm going through the, "Why me?" phase of the diagnosis. I got my pills and strips today, my machine I will receive by next week.
I guess I have to take the bull by the horns and hunker down even more on my diet, and increase my exercise regime...
I have been given a list of things to eat, which I already do, so I don't know what the dietician could tell me..."Please keep doing what you're doing"? I guess my next step is to buy a scale and start by reconfiguring my portion sizes?
When will I be able to dine out with my husband or my friends again?
What is the first thing should I do? Clean out my fridge & cupboards? What did you do?
