I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, no meds for now, just diet and exercise. I think I've done a fair job of eating and exercise these last couple of weeks. My numbers are coming down but still spiking in the afternoons. As I sat here struggling over the grocery list, depression set in. I know this is NOT the mind frame I need to be in to deal with being a diabetic. I got on line looking for a meal planner or ideas and found this site. After reading many of the post I feel much better. The ups & downs are going to exist for awhile but I have a renewed commitment to turn this into something positive. I will lose weight!! I have the opportunity to set examples by living a healthier life!! And best of all…I don't feel as alone as before. It's a comfort knowing that I have a place to come to share my experiences and learn from others that face the same struggles.
