Newbie T2 intro

Posts: 0

Hi! I’m a 47 yo partnered lesbian social worker living in lakeside Wayne/Hammondsport NY. I’ve had type 2 since March 2011 and am a recovering binge eater using mindful intuitive eating as a lifestyle change to help manage my diabetes and eating disorder. I’ve been a controlled type 2 diabetic since I started my recovery journey. I’m interested in starting a PODS meeting in my area and want to learn more about what that entails as the nearest meeting is 87 miles drive from where I live - it would be great to establish a Southern Tier of NY PODS.

Hello, Sisters!

I’m T2 almost 20 years now. Under my endocrinologist’s supervision, I maintain A1C 5.7 through diet alone. On my latest visit, my endocrinologist told me that I no longer have to test (finger stick) unless my A1C goes up. I I’m not a saint—I still weigh like 300 lbs. I control my sugar through diet only. And I don’t feel deprived. I kicked my addiction to sugar/carbs over one tough year. Now I enjoy everything except commercial desserts
