I see this is a real friendly group. I just got the D word from the VA so I haven't done much yet except try to change my eating. I drive around all day for work so it's tough. Being overweight it's tougher as everything has either too much salt, fat, carbs or all of the above. By the way, I saw one of your pics including Diet Coke. I've been drinking the caffiene-free version for many years; I understand caffiene's no good for diabetics either.
Anyway, I've gotta go to work but I'll be happy to talk with you further as your so local. Maybe we could meet for donuts! Later, mma
I have been good. My Medtronic rep works with my doctor office and they are really pleased with all the work I have been doing on my bloodsugars so they feels good. Although is still needs work. I am trying to gear up to including exercise which has always been my downfall. How many times a week do you exercise? Also this Sat in Atlanta we have Diabetes University not sure if you have heard ot it but I am going for the first time with my husband in tow maybe he'll learn something. Have u given your speech yet, I wish it was filmed I would have loved to see it. I would rather eat dirt than speak in public. Hope you are doing well, thanks so much for checking in, it means a lot!
Thanks for friending me. I am really working on my control and attitude. I am also working on making changes myself without having the doc do it for me which I stink at, but this is the first office I have been in where they really have the resources available. But I can't go as often as I would so I am trying to learn as much as possible.
Your attitude is very inspiring and motivating.
Thanks again Lori
Even as I "lurked" before I joined, I found discussions, blogs, etc. that were beneficial. I'm sure now that I'm a member I'll find it even more valuable! I've really enjoyed your blog and youtube videos. I will certainly use your videos as a way to educate people in a humorous way!
