Looking for some friends to support and be supported.

New Friends

I started using this site and would like to find a few friends.  Here is a little bit about myself.
I am a 45 year old male, husband and dad.  I teach band at a local High School and have done that for 22 years.
I am a practicing Christian and I enjoy talking/debating religion, politics, just about anything.  

The main reason I started using the site is for support and tracking of weight and blood sugar.  I am type 2 diabetic and have a daughter who is type one.  My highest weight was about 2 years ago when I hit 270.  At that time I was having a lot of trouble with minears disease.  I tried several plans and lost about 40 pounds.  I have bounced back up about 11 pounds and the blood sugar is not so good.

I have been trying to get back to exercising regularly.  I ride a bike, take Tea Kwon Do, and lift weights.  I also am trying to get back to a better diet, but that is tough.  

Anyway, i would enjoy hearing from others.

Take Care and good luck with your goals.

Hi nice to meet you and anyone else around. I'm looking for some support because it really does help to feel like your not alone. I have never gone on a diet before but recently my dr. Told me I am borderline pre-diebetic and since both of my parents are diabetics I know that if I can prevent it an get healthier then that is what I want to do. I have started watching what I eat and I want to start exercising more as well.  . . Lol a little about me I enjoy music and sing in show choir. I love debating or discussing religion politics or really whatever and I always try to keep an open mind.  I hope to make some friends here and support others like I wish for them to support me : )

Hi I'm a 29 year old married housewife in Alabama and i have type 2. I want to find some people in my same situation. i don't really know how to manage my disease. my sugar goes high and low. I stopped taking my medicine and lost 20 lbs between October 2012 and the end of February 2013 but my sugere got up to 419 so i had to get back on the metformin , jenuvia and i damaged my eyes a little from all that. now i have gotten back on track but have gained all my weight back. it is really depressing and some of my family do not understand that i can't just get rid of this with a snap of my fingers. i really need to find people who have this disease bc i feel aol alone and have no idea how to make things better!! Thank you!
