Good morning to all. Yes, I have Type 2 diabetes. I am a little overweight and have had diabetes since I was 17 years old, when I delivered my third son who weighed 10 lbs.

There are times that I gain and loose. For a while, I lost a lot of weight, now I have gained some back. I also have other health problems, but I don’t let it get me down because I enjoy life, and leave it in my Lord’s hand who watches over me.

But I do want to improve my life and eating style. There are times where I don’t care to eat, but will force myself, and there are times I will eat some sweets, but I am not too much of a person who eats sweets. I have cut down on my fried food and haven’t eaten a t-bone steak in so long that I can’t remember, because the doctor said no, and that he rather me eat sirloin which I do now.

My dream is to take Tai Chi so that I can build my bones, because they really hurt, so that I will not be on medication. I love to dance, but have to take my medication so that I won’t feel the pain. You see, I also have neuropathy and osteoritis. If anyone has some good recipes that are simple, that I can make, bless you all and thank you for all that you do.
