I was diagnosed approx Feb 20/22 of this year that I have Type 2 Diabetes. Was told very recently at my last dr visit that its a mild case (thank goodness). I dont take insulin yet (nor do I plan to). I manage my diabetes through medication (glimipiride), diet and exercise (30ish mins/day 4-5 days/wk on stationary bike at home). So far it hasnt been too hard to modify my lifestyle changes. For example, the foods I have to eat now have been for the most part pretty tasty, but I was wondering if anyone else has this problem.The problems I see myself facing now are that I like to snack after dinner, Im not real hungry in the morning although I know I have to eat breakfast (sometimes I tend to eat that at lunch, being late of course), having control of my portions (am battling both obesity and diabetes) and not putting a lot of energy/effort in my biking lately (for the past few wks). Its not because Im not motivated, I just havent had the energy. Does anyone else have/had these issues? I recently lost a good job I had due to unfortunate circumstance and am limited to what I can do for a living due to a back problem. Are my issues normal being Im new to this? My dietician said Ive had diabetes for at least a year, maybe 2.
