Wow, thank you very much for the nice comment. Very kind of you. I am thankful that I found TuD almost 1 yr. ago and wonderful people just like you. Again, thank you sweetie. Take care.
Yeah - I got the same email today about the 15% - I just put my order in ... the day before - but managed to use the discount from Tu and they were offering free shipping. I ordered up a few, one for my nephew as well, he's going on a Disney cruise next week, and the package is being shipped to his home in Kissimee (Orlando) - he's going to be so excited - as it's flame red. When I see him next month, we'll be able to show off our Spibelt (mine with the pump - his with a wad of chewing gum and change). Even my husband now is saying - "why didn't you order me one". Duhhh. Another time, when we make a trip to the USA (we have friends closer then FL - that are only 5 hours drive west of us in Rochester, NY - I sent alot of packages to them - many of them D related - e.g. SoloPump/Omnipod - due to those types of medical devices being sent to Canada as they're not approved here. Silly Canada - they've got their reason for not allowing all the cool stuff you get in the USA. I have ways of getting things tho' ;)
Hey Cassie - thanks for the "code" for the Spibelt. I want to order 2, and being a Montreal Fasionista, having the most difficult (LOL) time figuring out - which colour to get. I'll hopefully make my decision today, so I can send off the order, and have it waiting for me at my sis-in-laws in Kissimmee. What I like about this is, when I snorkel/swim, it'll be up tight against me! Also, like you say, going to the loo will be so much easier instead of having the pump clipped to my waist band! Have a great day!
Cassie - I am going to the States next month - and having things shipped to my sis-in-law that I can't get delivered to Canada (sometimes it's due to the outrageous posteage American companies charge). Anyway, I'm wanting to order up some of the Spibelt's - and you were saying we Tudiabetes members (have been one since April) get a discount. Many thanks if you see this in time before I order.

Typically I will drink a big glass of water first thing int he a.m. with my supplements. Then I will blend up a green drink with variable ingredients, but the mainstays will be fresh nopal cactus and bitter melon. I will sometimes add spirulina. For a snack I might have some raw cacao hot in almond mylk or some seaweed snacks. For lunch I will usually have a large salad with homemade dressing or just a simple vinegrette. I might add some nuts and seeds to the salad if I want more protein. For dinner I try to keep it light and have some veggies or lettuce wraps. I guess the main thing is just trying to make sure everything I eat has good nutritional value, mostly is green, and low glycemic. I lso try to make sure I don't get too hungry during the day because then its harder to stick with the raw diet. I am satisfied and feel good on the diet though. I drink tea between my meals and water and sometimes lemonade made with fresh lemons and water and stevia. I only use stevia to sweeten things. I will also chew xylitol gum if I feel it. It doesn't raise my sugars. I don't want to start another riot on this site...but between you and me and whoever else is interested...smoking some herb really seems to lower my sugars, and I smoke before bed. So...a day in the life of my belly. There you go, hope it helps.
My pleasure Cassie! I do think we're on the same page. It seems unwise to me for a person to take antidepressants when there are real reasons to be depressed. That said, I know there are circumstances where people get so down that they have to look up to see bottom, and I suppose you need to at least get in a better place where you’re capable of helping yourself……
Hey Cassie, how are you? And thanks! We must have excellent taste in music. :) I know, it's really surprising that the arm site hardly hurt at all inserting. Will definitely be trying it again now that I know. I was expecting it to hurt like crazy lol. The absorption worked out pretty well too. It seemed that my fasting numbers were a lot more steady with it there and my numbers became a bit more predictable in general... All in all it's nice to have another location for sites. I was very pleased I tried it. And I really appreciated your feedback about it! Made me less freaked out knowing it could be done with that tubing length. I hope you have a great weekend! :0)
Yes,Cathy I do know where Allentown is. I often travel pass it on my way to Harrisburg. It is a real nice area,alot warmer than the Poconos.

It is truely beautiful in late September,when the leaves begin to change colors.Till next time,take care,PA Pete
