I have recently been diagnosed with Diabetes II. I am still coming to terms with it and learning how to control my diet and glucose levels. Hoping that I can avoid going on meds at least in the short term. The diet is hard but I have managed to stick to it with it. The bonus is that my weight is now 5kg less and I am back within the normal range for my height. Trying so hard to give up smoking - have managed to cut down by more than half but cant seem to get the whole way as yet. Being used to being in front of the computer all day does not help - I am finding it hard to raise the motivation to get the exercise I need!
