Good to know, I didn't know that.

I too am a diabetic. When I was first diagnosed I tried all the sugar substitutes. They all left a metallic taste in my mouth. So I made a decision. I will give up all sugar items as long as I can have regular sugar in my coffee. And I stuck by that. I fought being a diabetic. Then I got the message. My first step was to start losing the weight. Exercise was not possible. I have arthritis in my left hip and spine. Be calcium deposits right at the base of my spine. It makes walking very difficult. Then I concentrated on the foods I was eating. Vegetables became my best friends. After 15 years of the battle, I am off my medications of insulin and control my diabetes with diet alone. I have had some close calls over the years and had to call 911. But lessons have been learned.

I lost 40 pounds last year and I was exercising big time. I have everything at home to so workouts now but with Boomer passing and getting these 2 new dogs I haven't been able to exercise so I'm getting flabby. I did gain 7 pounds on my cruise I took over Christmas but ill work on that.

I had my a1c down to 6.3 but I go for my bloodwork this week to see how I'm doing.

I changed my eating habits and I try to never make anything out of a box anymore. I do have one weakness and that's the Velvetta Mac and cheese. I make that, maybe, once a month.
