need diabetes dieting help and support
just starting to try again...for the umpteenth time...52 years old, motherof 7, diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 4 years ago, and have never gotten serious about taking care of myself. Overweight forever, I'm currently at 227 pounds, and need to get to about 150,,,but my current goal is to lose 8 pounds in the first month.
I'm re-reading all my diabetes education materials on counting carbs, am committing to 10,000 steps per day, will try to drink 32 ounces of water per day (bleck!), and will try to choke down the 5 meds I'm supposed to take each day.
I am very private about my weight-I find it hard to talk to people about it. Maybe chatting online will help me-I want to be around for many more years, and it's starting to dawn on me that simply wishing forit won't make it happen!
