  • I have really high readings in the morning as well. I just started taking Glipizide (5 mg) along with Metformin. It has improved but is still high. My biggest issue is hypoglycemia in the mornings with the Glipizide.
  • Hi and my name is Kelly and I'm newly diagnosed, well sort of. I've been in denial for six months and have finally decided to take this seriously. I've been on and off MFP for years for weight loss and exercise but new to Type 2 diabetes. Anyway, I've been keeping a food journal for a couple of weeks and then decided to…
  • Looking forward to following this thread. Let me introduce myself: My name is Kelly and I live in Vancouver, WA with my fiance. I want to feel better inside and out. Looking for inspiration as I journey once again to lose weight. Goals: Log Food, Exercise and Water Take one day at a time Be mindful Be kind Be patient Be…
  • Back at it! Feel free to add me!
  • Ball, Louisiana. Near Alexandria. Kinda near Baton Rouge. :)
  • Thank you for sharing @peacehawk! I've been to Michigan Womyn's Music Festival several times, many years ago. I too had some life-changing experiences on those visits. Most of them encompass the power of being female in our own space, completely safe from any harm. A true freedom we don't experience often walking in this…
  • @shiftynj you're right, definitely a running them for the weekend. Played golf on Saturday but definitely made up the calories and then some that I walked off at golf on Saturday night playing with friends!
  • On to the weekend. The hardest part of the week for me, calorie wise. But I'm golfing 18 holes tomorrow and chores on Sunday, which will keep me active. Have a great weekend everyone!
  • Hi everyone, I'm new to the group but have been off and on MFP for years. Lesbian in SF Bay Area, 50 years old and looking for motivation and support! Going to look up all of these "identifiers". :o
  • Lots of new people! Fun! Welcome to all of us! On to a great day!
  • Thank you Gloria67648! I so appreciate the welcoming! I usually start my day off with MFP log-in. I've just started walking to work, 1.5 miles each way and have been so surprised that it's not 10,000 steps. My fitbit recently broke and by chance I put it back on and it's working again. Anyway, thank you again!
  • Hello everyone! New to the group and looking for support and motivation! I've been on MFP for years, up and down weight loss, but this time trying to set a new life style change. Looking forward to daily updates and getting to know everyone through this discussion post. A little about myself. I live in the Bay Area,…
  • A bullet journal? Learn something new everyday! Thanks!
  • Please add me. Thanks!
  • I came across this just today! http://blog.keyingredient.com/post/15561385179/chicken-salad-sandwiches Great idea to add curry and / or apples, grapes, craisins.
  • Let's up the anti a little bit: http://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/2011/10/goat-cheese-stuffed-chicken-meatballs-with-spaghetti-squash-basil-gremolata-salad/ Haven't tried this yet, but I'm on it this week!
  • Try not to feel shame. Move on from the weekend and morning and feel relieved that the afternoon looks brighter... :smile:
  • This morning I had 1/2 cup FF Fage Greek Yogurt topped with homemade granola, half a banana and 1 T. cherry conserve. YUM!
  • One Hershey's Dark Chocolate Bliss... or Two?! Give yourself permission to feed your body ... control your portions. The more we try to NOT do something... the MORE we want it! If you just DO IT... it's surprising how easily the desire goes away.
  • Take a low-carb tortilla (La Tortilla Factory - 110 calories), lavash bread, or even english muffin and throw on any of your favorite HEALTHY pizza toppings. Put in the oven on broil and watch carefully. I don't use low-fat cheese because I don't like it and don't feel it adds any flavor to my pizza. So, I use ricotta…
