Hi, I was diagnosed in September of 2008 and I am simply just struggling to only eat 175 carbs a day. I started ck last week and tomorrow is my first weigh-in. I know I lost probably a couple of pounds but can't seem to make my targets. I go over in some and under in the others. Probably need to spend more time working at a diet plan for the week and stick to it. Diabetes runs in my family very strong and my Dad was on renal failure because of it before we lost him in October. I promised him I would take care of myself and not let it get out of control. My doctors nurse tells me I am in the "honeymoon" stage and nows the time to do something. Well, I would love to join your group and share my sucesses and failures with people who have the same problems as I have.
