My name is Delbert (though I also go by Delby a lot on the net.)
I’ve been type 2 for about 6 years but untill recently its been well under control with meds. This past year it seems to have gotten worse, and I’m starting to have health issues with it.
So 3 weeks ago I decided to embark upon lifestyle changes, mainly in my diet. I’ve given up soda (99%) eating healthier with a lot more fruit and veggies in my diet and less meat.
I’ve choosen (i.e. read made up myself) a diet plan that has its focus on “portion control” and eating more foods that have a Low G.I. index. In other words eating less and eating foods that don’t spike my blood sugar up.
I’d like to lose a bit of weight prob around 30 pounds, but that is a secondary issue as compared to trying to keep my blood sugar down and level. so far I’ve lost about 10 to 12 lbs… my scale keeps hopping up and down right now… lol
