You guys have all been more than patient.  We (the staff) are having the same issues with the board.  I'll see if I can get someone to report on the progress of repairs.  We don't want to lose any of you.  It's frustrating for everyone.  Group hug??

It is such a shame becasue I really do like this place and the people that post here.  I did notice that I stated having more problems when I made some changes to internet explore.  just changed how fast it deletes files.  I will put it back and see what happens.  Who ever is in charge of keeping these boards runing is one lucky um person.  No one knows how many new members just leave or maybe cant even sign in to begin with. what a shame.

Hi Sally,


I am glad everything is getting better but wow I still wish things were better for you and Hal.
I hope he is doing what he has to in order to be as healthy as he can.  Being unheathy is not fun.
I cant stand feeling week and I guess that is what gives me my push to exercise.  I remember walking around being afraid is my shoes
would untie because it was very hard to reach them and tie the laces again.  Lots of love to you and Hal.

  First time in weeks I could respond right away and in fact I was almost going to stop posting here.

Thank you so much for replying Nancy.  I care about your responses and hearing about your life.  Life sure gets interesting at times with good times and bad but families plow right through the difficult times and get through on the other side.  Diabetes definitely is a family affair.  Sometimes it works for us and sometimes againest us.  God bless their hearts!

Thanks Sally!  It is so encouraging to connect with others that are managing diabetes.  I wish that there were more people participating on the board.


I have had lots of treats lately so I have moved my next big reward to the 200 lbs loss.  That will be awhile down the road.  I keep a steady stream of little rewards along the way to help me keep motivated.  The first time I was able to buy nice blue jeans was a huge reward Smile.  I watched my Mom lose the battle with Alzheimers....staying health and whole will be my biggest reward of all. 


I live in the Prairies of Canada.  It is spring here now so I am finding it much easier to be outside enjoying exercise rather then being trapped in the gym.

Thank you for your reply Faith.  Means alot to me.  We really are trying very hard with our health.  Hal has so many serious problems because he didn't take care of his diabetes when he was young.  He just didn't have the knowledge of what could happen.  I just learned about so many complications from him and research on dLife.  It is definately a strong motivator to try hard to manage it.


Even though I don't respond on the diet buddy's forum I follow it very closely and always appreciate an entry from you.  You are a nice person besides being a good example for others to follow if they can.  Still planning for that celebration?  I know you are getting closer and closer to your goal that you have set.


Are you in England?

Sally, I am so happy to hear that things are looking more encouraging for Hal.  You both are working hard to be as healthy as possible.  Keep up your efforts!  It is so worthy it.

As you know my Hal has had problems with ulcers and wounds on his legs.  His legs would swell and break down and he ended up with such bad wounds he has to go to the wound center.  He has had his legs wrapped and checked twice a week.

His cardiologist has put him  on alot of diurectics and potassium and he had all sorts of heart and artery tests.  The results all came back good!  Hal lost 30 lbs of water weight in one month and the swelling is down.  The nurse at the wound center is perplexed because it is usually a heart issue or a circulation problem that gives this condition.  Hal's doctor says it is a combination of his diabetes, his weight, and his heart.  *He does not have any blockages though and that is wonderful!!

He is still going to the wound center but I think things will heal up as long as the diurectics work
and maybe it will be ok for now on.  We are encouraged.
