Welcome aboard, Lynne! Boy I'll say what you're doing is working! Is it EVER working! I'm betting you have just as much info for US, as we have for you, and that's the great thing about a community like this - we all gain support & knowledge from one another & make strong new friendships too.

Thank you for joining us - I look forward to getting better acquainted.

take care,

Welcome. Congratulations too on your weight loss. You should be very proud.

Hi PBER57 well thanks for that to be honest i only started dieting because i could see my teenage daughter putting on weight and i felt i couldnt preach to her when i was overweight myself and im happy to say she has also lost the excess weight. Regards Lynne

That's the kind of good sense we need more of in this world - teach by example! Now you & your daughter have both benefitted greatly from your sensible approach. Way to go, Lynne!

Lynn, that is fantastic that you have taken control of your diabetes and are doing so well now. You are a shining example to your daughter and all who know you. I hope the other type 2 diabetics on this site will read your message and learn from you. Thanks for joining us!
