    Wayne, this is a keeper. I am a diabetic and have revamped a lot of my recipes to be able to eat them.
    Have you seen my recipe for Homemade Powdered Sugar for us diabetics?

    Actually I have seen your recipe on powdered sugar and I have already saved it. I keep playing with different types of sugar and how to best use it for me. Changing recipes is interesting. My biggest fear is that I will get bored eating something and then fall off the wagon (so to speak). Keep in touch.

    I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 2005. I went to a 9 week course at the local hospital to have classes with a Diabetic Nutritionist to learn how to loose weight then be on a exercise progam to keep from going on meds...I told my doctor I would not go on meds. He said you will or you'll probably die (as I also have a heart and blood pressure problem).
    Well I've lost most (not all) and maintained myself with my eating and exercise from then until now and still not on any meds.
    Brought my blood sugars from over 200 to down in the high 90's. Very rarely do I get up over 100 anymore.
    But, believe me, it's no picnic...it is hard work as I'm sure you well know.
    I also had to give up salt because of swelling...I eat very little salt at all.

    I was diagnosed with Type 2 in April 2010. I too have gone to classes. I believe they are needed for people with this disease. Blood pressure was a problem for me but it is under control now. Since diagnosed, I went from about 235 pounds to 170. Exercise and watching what I eat has helped me do what I have done.
    You can say that again, it is no picnic. Some times it has come to the point that I just get up and walk away from wherever I am at, like watching other people eat. My wife understands, at least most of the time. :)
    Salt is something that I haven't used for years.
    Glad to hear that everything is coming along for you. Keep up the good work and if you ever need to talk about anything just give me a shout.

    Great, you have reall gone down with your weight loss.
    I only lost 50 lbs. and still need to loose about 30 more to be a happy camper.
    At the time I found out I had it I was the head cook at a Senior Citizen Center and for Meals on Wheels. There were a lot of diabetics that I cooked for so I just started eating what I cooked for them. When I had to quit working, I sorta would go on an off the diet sometimes. I still hate it.
    Before I was doing that I was a Nutritional Lab Tecnician for a food company and did the testing to determan the government nutritional labeling to go on food from grocery stores to restaurants (includding fast foods)....so I already ate fairly nutricionally correct (I thought).
    I guess I was kind of a binge eater though. Feast or famine, sometimes I'd eat a lot, then not eat for a day or two of not eating anything.
    I know not good, not I eat about 6 small meals a day. Doctor said not to have 3 lg or even normal meals a day....eat 3 small ones.
    I hit a plato and just don't seem to break it...at a stand still with my weight. At least not gaining back though.
    Men seem to be able to loose faster than women.
    I better get off this soapbox and get some work done...=;D
