I could cry, I’m so happy!! I was just dx’ed about 6 weeks ago. Since then, I’ve lost 21 lbs and got my first reading of 99 today after a walk!! I can do this!!!
Good for you! Yes, you can do this.
Don’t ever forget, walking is the magic elixer!

Thank you all so much! I thought this would be impossible for me. It’s really not, and I’m getting so much better! Love y’all!! Thanks so much for your encouragement!! :

Congratulations! Physical activity and decreasing one’s percentage of adipose tissue in addition to health eating is the first line approach in managing type 2 diabetes! Well done!

Yeppers, seems like exercise is an important part of keeping numbers low. Perhaps doctors should write prescriptions for exercise in addition to any medications. For me its bike riding!
Thanks so much, everyone!
As it happens, I experienced my first spike today. Bleh. One more food to cross off my list, but…it is what it is.
You might find the following site of interest: www.exerciseismedicine.org. As a clinical exercise physiologist I agree wholly with you that doctors should write a prescription for exercise and make referrals to individuals like myself for delivery of the prescription.
Best to you!
That is great, many happy "return-to-normal-numbers ". Perceptive exercise, what a concept!
