i too was diagnosed with diabetes june 2012 and was put on meds. after a radical lifestyle change and dropping 50lbs thru diet and exercise. i am completely off meds and have never felt better. going to run half marathon next month. when i started exercising i couldnt even run 2 miles in 30 minutes.
its all about the diet and exercise. its hard work but i never want to feel like i felt when i walked in to the dr's office that june day. oh and i havent had a drink since.
