thanks for the welcome!
i'm doing good actually. i was a little afraid when i first stopped the insulin but eating low carb seems to be working for me - and exercising - my BG is more stable than it has been in years and lower! now it stays around 129 and is slowly creeping lower... when i was on insulin it was always at least 150 usually higher - i kept it higher because if i walked or did anything resembling exercise like sweeping the floor it would plummet... :D

HI Jim- I want to thank you for your word of support and condolence on the loss of my mother. It was a difficult week, but the love that I felt from my TuD family certainly helped get me through it. Thanks again.

Hey, Jim. Thanks for the welcome. I'm not really computer savy - sorry for the delayed responce. I'm on an insulin pump for about 2months & it changed my life. I love diving with Great White Sharks & jumping out of airplanes. I'm starting my solo jumping classes August 7th & have no idea how I'm gonna do it with a PUMP! But I'm gonna do it! I'm working on some really cool ideas...I'm a construction worker & people don't even know I'm wearing an insulin pump cause I've gotten very creative in how I wear it. It's an amazing device that makes me feel 18yrs young again!( I'm 33). I will become a succesful skydiver with the pump. Send you videos
