Welcome home Bizzie.
Just want to say that....having diabetes does not make you unfit. You ARE fit....but you're also wired for diabetes. I too am a thin type 2...always was, AND fit!
This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends.

click on "all groups". You can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the
space provided.
Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well.
The resource boxes at the top of the home "Home" page, and
"About us" at the very bottom of your page and every page (the footer), offer you more information still.
