30th anniversary, WhooHoo! How do ya do it? LOL Must be that all that time away from each other makes the togetherness even better eh? Is your gs still living at home? I've got one more yr w/mine, and then he leaves for greener pastures, sniff sniff.

I think you know he's married w/a kid now, right? I know, too young! But he seems to be handling it extremely well. He's got goals and I'm more than positive that he'll make them. Everything is happening waaay too fast!

Welcome back Sandra.

Wow, congratulations on such a weight loss!! I wish I could do that. I don't seem to be able to give up sugar. Been a sweet tooth addict since childhood. And to control diabetes w/out meds....you're doing great! I'm on a med for it and he put me on it fairly early. I hope never to have to take insulin, so I try but I just can't pass up dessert yet. Probably never will. It's the carbs I watch. Too many carbs and my blood sugar goes up. The highest it's ever been is 212 back in March. That scared me. I had a 187 reading the other day, but normally I try to keep it around 100. Do you take readings everyday still? I don't. Just when I know I've been bad. But my A1C has always been low, 5.4 being the highest so my Dr. doesn't worry about it.

Last yr. I had bought all new capries to wear for summer. I couldn't fit into them this yr. and that just totally pissed me off. And I refuse to buy all new clothes again. So I ended up going to a 2nd hand store and picked up 2 prs. of capries that fit me now. Hopefully, I'll be able to wear my smaller ones next summer. It's soooo depressing when your clothes no longer fit.

Are you still eating meat? What type of exercise are you doing?

thanks Colleen...I did not really plan on the loss..just wanted to make my glycimic levels to come down..adn they did..the bonus was weight loss..mine goes up with the carbs..sugar is the worst though.
