Hi Jill

Thanks for accepting my friend request. Which part of Newfoundland are you from? I was born in Gander but grew up on Fogo Island. I moved to Toronto about 13 years ago and have been type 1 about the same amount of time.

Your pictures are amazing!

Take Care,

Great music - I forgot you've got some good tunes on your play list. BTW, read your post about how much insulin you use. Lucky you! I average about 20 units a day. Would be less, if I was more active, but I'm LaZy! Take care and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thanks, Jill. I work out 4-5 days a week with crossfit ( and eat a paleo diet. The lack of refined foods and intense exercise leaves little room for highs. Lows are more of a problem.

Hey! Thanks for your comment. Thats really amazing, all the things you've done while sporting your pump. I usuallly am really enthusiastic and love educating people, its just not so much lately. Hmm, :\ Ive tried the pump in bra thing, but it doesnt work with me. Mainly because i dont have the boobs, and my pump is too bulky. I have the glucometer attachment so it makes my pump fatter than what it already is. Lol.

Hey Jill...

Thanks for the encouragment! I'm cracking up because all three of the ladies that commented on my blog mentioned the "marriage" aspect and used code words. My pod should arrive today so I'll probably get hooked up next week sometime. Any pointers for someone just starting out?

ahhh i see, i tried clipping it under my bra the other day. worked fairly well with the shirt i was wearing- tried the next day, not so much with a tighter shirt. so now i see your point about loose blouses and such.

so you're in NORWAY?!?! bahh *envious* lol. how did that death metal band thing go? lol- there's a huggeee DM/viking scene there its crazy. wish i was with ya! haha, and you totally should visit finland. Summer is the best time to go cause its not depressing and frigid!

-hope you're having a stellar time in Scandinavia!

Oh I have never seen the full ad for the Nicole Kidman Chanel ad - now it all makes sense. It's sooooo good. Thanks for posting it on your Homepage Jill. Now I'm going to have dreams of that sexy man - hope my BG's don't get elevated with the excitement !
