Number have consistently been under 200 for the past week..huge deal for me. I really hope that the number keeps going down. If not, then I go on insulin. SO, not only will I keep eating healthy and exercising, but I will also try to keep positive. Honestly, I never thought that I would end up exercising again. I hate it...HATE IT. The treadmill really helps. I don't mind it too much. I just put on a dvd and walk. I always feel accomplished afterward. I'm only doing a mile at the moment, but it's still early....I have to build up my stamina.


  1. Good work, keep it up! If you were put on glucophage(metformin), it takes at least 2-3 weeks to really kick in.

  2. Hi dear, im new to your blog, just found it, keep up the good spirits, try walking out in the park.. the fresh air will make you feel much better, take a pedometer , further you can always fill your day with various activities and it'll be almost like an exercise but we are not building dashboard abs, and biceps and triceps here, so u can always choose the alternatives. You will definitely feel better, I'm 22 and have hypo thyroid, since last feb i was in turmoil, lots of idiotic sounding pills kept increasing my weight and waist but last October I turned to Indian [Ayurveda] medicines. Withania herb called Ashwagandha gave me relief, thankfully..My hormones are under control, I have made a routine to walk before that i used to go to gym [ it all worked but i lost just 5 kgs in 5 months. not a great deal " when i was 143 lbs now im 134 lbs, without that much exercise and only with a "nature walk" I did all this and still doing. At times it's frustrating to see my swollen face in the morning but since I have turned to naturopathy [ my dad's a doc of this ] Im glad... Withania actually helped me.

    For your diabetes you can look forward to Ayurveda, these medicines are available despite of the fact where you live.
    Keep us updated.
    i'm following you.☺☻

    love Naqvee ♥♥♥

  3. I don't have diabetes but I'm under constant watch for it, due to meds I have to take. Good luck w/the workout and I hope you don't need to take the insulin.


  4. I hate exercise too. Wish I had a treadmill and a place to put it. As you know from reading my blog, I had to go on insulin because of concern for my kidneys. There is no shame in using insulin. It's just another tool in our medicine chest. See you haven't posted in a while. I encourage you to do so.
