Hang in there Rosey! You can do it. I threw out the rest of my cookies (after eating the 5 remaining Keebler chocolate something or others) and there is an unopened bag of low fat Chips Ahoy's in there but I really, really like those and 3 cookies has like 5 or 6 grams of fat and like 22 carbs and 3 cookie feels really good, like you actually got something, you know? I had some grilled salmon and green beans with those cookies last night. Yum, tried to walk, got rained on after 5 minutes, actually ran 2 blocks, and didn't hear the pavement cracking so that's good. Woke up at 92, Yeah!. Uh oh, I am going to have to work on this to try to keep pace with Judy, I was at 237 last year, now at 205- aiming for 180.

I'm 33 y.o. and was just recently diagnosed as type II diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. I also just gained 9 pounds. I don't know how that could have happened. And all of my weight is in my stomach. Being short it makes me look like a bowling ball. I was so depressed yesterday that I was looking on the web just yesterday and found this board. I sure am glad that I did. It'll be great to talk with other's with the same problems as me. Maybe I can help you, and you can help me too!

Join the club! We're all here to help and support each other. I turn 36 in 8 days and was diagnosed back in the end of February with my type II. sucks doesn't it? didn't think I would be dealing with it until I was 45 or 50. As the other regulars here (Judy and Rosey) can tell you, it's about eating healthy, EXERCISING, and trying to get the nast visceral abdomen fat (it's the stuff that's causing the insulin resistance) trimmed down through enjoyable but consistent, steady exercise.

Hi everyone,
I haven't been around much lately, busy as heck at work.. Hope everyone is doing ok.. :0) I'm doing fine, still doing the same ol same ol. Eating healthy, walking everyday, and keeping my life in perspective with all this Diabetes stuff... Overwhelming? Sometimes yes it gets sickening to think about this all the time but then on the other hand it is a wake up call to do what I need to do...

Again hope you are all well and talk to you all soon!

*Judy

Hi everyone...interesting thread you have going on. I am 26 yrs old, have PCOS, borderline Type 2 Diabetic, & Insulin Resistance. Trying my hardest to get this all under control. But as you all know, it's not that easy.

I post over on the PCOS/Insulin Resistant forum, as well as The 100 Lb Club here at 3FC. Would love to see some you join us.

Wishing you all the best..

Uh Oh Jennifer, "borderline" diabetic? They way my dr, the diabetes educator, the other message boards I go too, they all say the same thing...either you're diabetic or you're not....and the 1 example that they ALL love to give is...you're not borderline pregnant are you???? I've skipped over to the PCOS board before and it's interesting. When I was first diagnosed with my type II back in February, I thought maybe I had PCOS, but I miss on the one big characteristic that everyone talks about...irregular periods....I'm like clockwork in that dept and my gyn didn't think I met the criteria for PCOS. Not only that, if I did have it, I'm already on glucophage which I know some PCOS sufferers take to control those symptoms. Take care! Pam

Talking MY BIRTHDAY

Well, I turned 36 today!!! My sugars have looked so good this week, it's scary. I've put those same 3 pds back on. Kind of hard to get them off this week. It was my sister's birthday yesterday (she's an insulin and oral meds dependent type II herself) and we went to Arigato's Japanese steakhouse for dinner...yum, yum, yum....I won't even mention how much rice I ate and then Publix (southeast chain of grocery stores -who make the best yellow cake!)for dessert...I walked w/in an hour after getting home and never went over 105? Whatever I'm doing I hope it lasts...We are going out the Cheesecake Factory for dinner (and obviously as the name implies, dessert) There will be about 9 of us, so we are going to order only about 3 pieces of the most delectable dessert ever created and split it. More walking tonight!
