Hi Mona; I wish I did live near you. I don't exercise as much as I should. I think it would be awesome to find someone to exercise with. I wish you good luck. You are an inspiration for me.

Hello Mona, Nice to meet you. Unfortunately I live to far away also. You will find on here that we are all scattered all over the place. It is very helpful and encouraging to have all of this support. Everyone is just great and you will not find anyone that understands better than those who are going through are have gone through what you are.

Hi Mona, I'm too far away to be your exercise buddy, but I always suggest fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish or poultry, low-fat dairy products, olive oil, as basics for a good diet, diabetic or otherwise. Are you testing your blood glucose to see how the foods you are eating are affecting you? Welcome to the community.
