Bravo! Hubby was diagnosed with diabetes about a year ago, and has also done admirably ... lost 25 pounds, and watchese his food. I was pleased that he didn't need to change what he ate, just when he ate it (I'm already a healthy cook) and taking care of the amounts. One thing we really found that helped was taking out the 1 cup and 1/2 cup measuring cups and using them as serving utensils to make sure that he gets the right amount of carbs at meal time. We find it interesting that he eats MORE than he used to at dinner, fewer at lunch and breakfast, and those three scheduled 15 carb snacks (I had a hard time getting him to eat fruit before this reared its ugly head). When he went for his annual checkup, the doctor said if he hadn't seen the beginning numbers himself, he wouldn't believe he diagnosed diabetes. So it has its rewards. We're rooting for you! Success stories are out there!

Bravo to you too, Claire. I"m sure hubby wouldn't have done half as well without you there to help!
