  • 6 years ago I switched to a low carb way of eating, losing 2 stone and ‘reversing’ my type 2 diabetes. I thought people might be interested in my story, as inspiration for those newly diagnosed or when the going gets tough. My mother was diabetic, my grandmother was diabetic, my brother is...

    I miss the plain ol' ordinary stuff. I do not hanker for posh food in rich sauces or the slabs of cake from the Garden Centre cafes. I miss marmalade and I miss crisps sandwiches on fresh Warburtons white. I dream about salad cream, and onion rings. Weetabix looks heavenly in my son's bowl....
  • I am type 2 diabetic, and I’m really trying to shift it. I have been dieting hard by following a low carb diet, and have lost seven stone over the last twelve months, with three still to go to achieve my target weight of twelve stone (by Christmas?). But my surgery tells me that, though...
  • I haven't mentioned my holiday for a couple of weeks. That's because I was on it. Honest, I tried to check in on you guys but a combination of dodgy wifi, mountains, having to drive a bit more than 2000 miles* and a grandson meant I've been out of touch for a while. This was a trip I've wanted...

    Just found out today that my husband has only months to live. The damned cancer came back and is untreatable this time. My eating has gone out of the window....it seems so unimportant somehow right now. I have to find my resolve again to get back on track or I won't be any use to him at all....

    A great Yorkshire word, is mithered. One that I am feeling a lot just lately. It means being nagged or harrassed from all sides. I am heartily sick of seeing HCPs of one sort or another for various check ups and treatments when, to be honest, all I want to do is to be left alone in a quiet...
  • HI, my brother was recently diagnosed with T2. He hasn't really changed his diet, in fact, I think it's worse than ever. I've been shopping for and with him and things seemed ok for a while. We checked our blood the other day. My level was 146. His was 331! I've discussed diet with him and have...

    this morning I tried on a skirt I made a little while ago, when my clothes started falling off, and saw that it is now on the point of being too large. It is a wrap over style and was on the loosest fastening when I made it, now it is on the tightest. I checked my weight, and it is now 221lb -...
