There is a ton of support here. And lots of ladies with lots of experience to share.
I do know a bit about diabetes and the best thing you can do is get your weight under control. I think you will be surprised how much better you will feel after a couple of weeks of 10K steps and good, healthy eating. There have been a number of posts over the months by folks who have conquered diabetes, so here are my prayers that you become one of those stories too!
PS: try adding either Crystal lite or Propel to that water. I'm with you, plain water isn't very appealing all by itself.
