well, it depends on what you want ellen. there are several discussions one of these is just new today here ~ Here is another ~ And the ones from DC here~,

try these. on the first discussion I think you'll have to ask the ladies and send your email address to them via DC emali and they will send you what they have.

Thanks James! As usual your a life saver!! LOL I continued to look after I posted an guess what?? I found one of YOUR discussions with a link and just finished logging in what information I do have. It took a minute cause like I've said before, I'm very "technologically impaired"!! But I got it!! Yeah for me!! It's a free Excel Spreadsheet. Had a friend here to help put it to my desktop so it's easier for me to get too!! Thanks again James!! GOT to get this under control!! So I can get back to work! Dr. won't give me disability…says ALL i have to do is loose 60 lbs. an I can get off the meds and I'll be fine!! My ONLY problem with THAT is It's NOT going to happen overnight!! JUST means I've got to try harder!! Nice to talk to you again though!! I have a feeling I'm gonna be needing you guys a lot more often!! lol Thanks and be well, your friend Ellen :)

HURRAY for you Ellen!

Do you have what I did to manage my BGs without diabetes meds and additionally i LOST about 50 lbs. It is rather radical but I manage my BGs in the normal range without the use of any diabetes meds of any kind. Now you may need to keep on taking YOUR diabetes meds, but this may be a way to lose the weight you need to lose. It didn't happen overnight for me either, but within 2 or 3 months I noticed my 42 inch waistbands getting looser.

I started in Feb 2011 and at that time my focus was on BG readings. by the time of my trip to Ohio in July I had to wear a 38 inch waist band or my pants would fall down around my ankles when I had to take off my belt in the airpost. That was exciting and scary all at the same time. And by Oct 2011 my son pulled me aside and wanted to buy me new pants that fit better so I'd look better for the wedding. (ya know what — I let him!)

Should you wish it, I will send it to your DC inbox so it will be easy to find. Posting things like that in a discusssion board clutters up the board and gets lost so easily. If one doesn't delete that email then you have it to refer to it when needed.

let me know ellen!

Don't be a stranger!

Put your legs under the table and act like you're going to stay a while

Yeah, don't be a stanger. I don't like the competition, as I am "stranger than MOST". In fact my sons wouldn't talk to me the first 6 years of their lives because their momma told them "Never talk to strangers" — and they didn't want to disobey mom! LoL! Such good boys I have!
