great news from the diabetic clinic today

went to my 1st diabetic clinic appointment, and everyone was delighted that i had done so well, i lost over a stone, my blood pressure is normal, my urine sample was good also, iam eating healthy and doing exercise, the one thing the diettision said was make sure i don't get carried away with eating to much fruit as they have sugar in it also, i no its good sugar but to much of it is bad,
