"That sounds like fun! Michelle is who I spoke with today. But my doc also recommended Phoebe. Not sure if those would be the ones you would want to talk to. I always wanted to try Zumba. Where do you teach?"

To keep from dropping I check my bs about 20min before class and if I am under 150 I have up to 20 gm in juice depending. I have begun to keep a small juice nearby when I take class instead of snacking. I just sip juice while I exercise a little. I have to say your A1c is impressive. I was 13.9 when diagnosed and it took six months to get to 7.1 with pretty diligent effort.

Hi! If you're in ANC then maybe you'd be interested in a t1 group? I was thinking about starting one over the summer.
