Hi, I have T2 and I'm new to the forums. I've been very easy on myself lately. I get this way when I get fed up with being so strict, that I lose some control. I have lost some weight and my sugar…Continue

"Hey Leanne, where did you buy that tea! Sounds amazing. I suppose it could be that there are so many different kinds and brands of green tea. Once in a while is ok but it will not be my everyday tea:)"

Green Tea hype

So I fell for the green tea is so healthy for you and that is all you should drink your whole life again(add sarcasm if you like). I used to drink it at the bucket fulls and started again this year.What I have noticed, this time around, is that when I drink 3 cups a day I get this clouded head feeling. I can't concentrate and my eyes feel heavy.I have been feeling tired this whole week and have been getting more than 6 hours each night. I have concluded that it is either from the green tea or I…See More

I just read this interesting blog by Professor Tim Noakes. I will let you make your own mind up. It is very interesting to gather and learn new information about Diabetes.

What would you do with a diabetes-free day?

Posted on February 13, 2012 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

I have not thought about this for a long time. I can't even remember a time when I didn't worry about my diabetes and about food.

So the first thing, I will erase from my brain is the worrying part. Just living the day worry-free. Not worrying about my tablets, or how every activity is going to affect my levels, or what food I can or can't eat, or when I should check my levels and record it, or that I have to eat everyday the same time or worry about exercise.

I will just do…

I've been very easy on myself lately. I get this way when I get fed up with being so strict, that I lose some control. I have lost some weight and my sugar has been excellent but then I go on a binge(I think that would be the only way to describe it). It is so frustrating because I think that I FINALLY have things under control and I lose all of it! I know I need to be consistent but I just can't seem to do it. How do people stay motivated all the time?!
