I haven't been around in a couple of years--not sure if any of you will remember me. I'm trying to get back on track so I came here for recipes and support.

I remember you. Glad you to see you again. How's it been for you since you were here last - a couple years ago?

I remember you VeeJay! I haven't been really bad, but haven't been good. My A1c has crept up to 7 and I need to get back on track.

Welcome back! I also went missing for quite awhile and I'm so glad I returned. Coming here every day really helps me stay focused on doing the right things.
