    Beefy, where are you from? I am from Calgary originally, and I lived/worked in Jasper for 5 years.

About Me

  • About beefy
    Hi. I'm Glen.

    I'm a husband and father. Three kids - 21, 19 and 15 - boy, girl, boy respectively. My daughter is now away at university - sad for me, good for her =)

    We've also got a dog and a cat. At least I think we have a cat. Somewhere. His food keeps getting eaten, so I think we still have a cat...

    I'm a true computer dinosaur. I've worked in the I.T. field since 1981... well before it was called I.T.

    I'm currently off on disability leave from from work, adjusting to the diabetes as well as several debilitating back problems. Hoping to get healthier, and trying hard to do so.

    Your experiences with diabetes
    Being diagnosed was a shock.

    I quickly undertook to find all the information I could, filter out the 'bad' and keep the 'good'.

    I learned to test, test, test.

    I've now lost 75 lbs thanks to my low-carb diabetes lifestyle, which includes daily exercise.

    Blood sugars are much more in control, although I still wish (at times) that I could eat whatever I want...
