Im coming off a year of de-Nile I lost 30 lbs last year...and my a1c was 2. it was to hard, felt like I was obsessed by trying to change my eating habits. logging everything...obsessing over every bite... No 30 is back..A1C is like 9. I got a new dr. he seems more interested in me and my diabetes. keeping it simple. Counting carbs, he has changed when I take my meds.

The D is a lifelong journey with peaks and deep valleys. I'm so glad you are back and that maybe your new doc will be more attentive. Please stay in touch now and let us know how we may help...Blessings!

Many of us have had significant ups and downs in our Diabetic life. Diabetes is not a straight line and many of us (me included) fall off he bandwagon. It just sort of happens, or we make conscious choices its all the same. My particular fall off the wagon makes yours look like a roman holiday. Welcome back, we cannot go back and change where have been but we can learn and say honestly we wont do that again. I know I wont. It is not that you ever left, you just took a break, now that the vacation is over, we are so excited you returned to to TUDiabetes, now forgive yourself and welcome yourself back to diabetes, it like those of us on this site was waiting.
