I give you a lot of credit for posting your situation here and taking ownership for managing diabetes. It sounds like you know what you want to change in your eating and exercise habits. Perhaps you can commit to changes here with us, and update regularly on your progress. That added accountability may be just the nudge you're looking for. ~Lynn @Glucerna

Those things you mention: ". . . eating is out of control and I dont exercise . . . ." are things which you have power to change. Your weight is also, but that is a longer term process to change. But I believe you can do it!

In the early days of my T2 Dx I was much like you.

Regarding your BG (blood glucose) readings, what are you supposed to be doing to try to manage them? Pills or incjections or other?

How are your BG readings running otherwise?

Praying you get motivated to make the changes needed

I take metformin 500mg 2x a day, diet exercise. Most other counts are 120 to 160 afternoons and evenings. Thats the key I need to get motivated.

I believe you are able to find the motivation. Please care enough about yourself to take good care of yourself! If you cannot find motivation in yourself, take a look at your loving husband and your son and find motivation there! You want to live a good long and loving life with your hubby.
Also you'd no doubt want to see your son grow into manhood and get married and see your grandbabies!

Those things would be cut short or you might not enjoy them as much if you got the myriad of things which could go wrong by way of complications.

I pray you find the motivation somewhere!
