Yeah ! Being on the insulin pump this past year is improving even my balance so walking is easier and safer now than last year.

Hi marsha. walking is fun and good exercise.

Yikes! I haven't checked in with this group -- or walked much -- for too long. Spring is here in Iowa (73 degree spike yesterday; up to 50+ daily) so I need dust off my walking shoes and get moving.
Thanks for the nudge, Kevin Lajoie --

Today I find that:

a) metformin to haul back on liver excess glucose release and dawn effect.
b) 1 to 2 miles walking a day. 4 years ago I haed stroke nad needed to get going.
c) limit diet to 1200 calories a day.

Before all of above, could not lose ounce on 1200 calorie diet. After above, lost weight from 330 pounds to sub 260
and still dropping.

Walking is my key exercise and keeps the glucose burned off of the skeletal muscle cells. All forms of exercise should boost further but walking has worked best for me.

Walking exercise every day is critical to keep glucose burned off. Insulin does not do that contrary to all the misguided lies out there. The exercise enusures my BG does not crawl up and stays under better regulation for this type 2. If I have overdone food basket it in a day - I walk extra 1/4 miles loop and this exercise kicks back BG.
