September 2010
At 42 I found out that I had inherited the family curse of Diabetes. My goal is to reduce my morning sugar count without medicine and of course lose weight. Excersize has always been my downfall, I just don't like it! Walking is about the only routine I like and can stick with so that's were I'll start. By the way, I’m 5’7” and average to large frame.

Update April 2018
Here I am now at 50 and the diabetes has taking its toll. Been on insulin for about three years now and it sucks! Loosing the initial weight (restarting again at 188) did nothing to help control my A1C so unfortunately this is a new way of life for me. Still yet, I need to lose weight and after taking several years off from “dieting” I am now back on a low carb way of eating. This journey will never end and I have accepted that fact. So for all those out there struggling, just know you’re not alone and I understand!

Diabetic Easy Recipes
Hi Everyone, I'm new here and thought I would say hi. Also, does anyone have recipes that are easy and fast for a Diabetic? I would love to try a slow cooker one so it's ready when I get home from work.

Thanks for the tips.
