    Especially if you really really like a pizza and a Chantilly cake but you are eating with the handbrake pulled.

    By the way I know a really nice vegan woman that knows how to cook and is not pushy at all , we can talk together about recipes an diabetes without problems.

    Yup, loosing the weight is a great side effect of this lifestyle change. 3 more isn't too ambitious. I've read that we can stall at some point, but my view is just keep doing what you're doing and it will all come good ☺️

    Yes, I know I shouldn't generalise. To be honest I don't envy vegans. Couldn't do it myself. If I were not type 2 not on Meds, the closest I could come to vegan would be a diet of walkers cheese and onion crisps. Rats blown it already. Cheese. D'oh!!!

    By the way I've lost 20lb and want to loose perhaps another 3 stone too. I'd say race ya, but that un does all I said above . Keep me posted though. There's a Friday weigh in thread somewhere...

    Ok its early days for you, but diabetes is livable. You will soon learn the amount of carbs you need, most meats and vegatables are free in the correct portions and the way they are cooked. Just read the amount of sugar in foods ie:- low fat yogurt, that kind of thing. You will be surprised of the amount of sugar in so many foods. Life is what you make it. Think diabetes is easy to live with, you can do sport anything you put your mind to. Do not let it rule your life, you are in charge not it.

    You are not alone my friend - 2 years later for me, and I try to make light of my "incidents" but even jovial doesn't work with those nearest and dearest to me - they just turn deaf or ignore. Thank goodness for the Forum where you at least get a response to your inner, perhaps scary, but well needed reassurance. I'm so glad I joined, the Forum and I'm sure you will slowly but surely grow in confidence. Would be so good to have backing and understanding of friends and family tho' - I'm still working on it without giving them the Zzzzzzzzz!

    I am finding it tricky because my daughter is recovering from an eating disorder and I am trying not to mention me struggling from time to time with the lchf plan. Also feel so guilty and think if I had managed my own eating better maybe she would have had an easier time. But I am over 3 months since diagnosis and have, apart from a few blips, stuck to lchf eating and wearing the freestyle libre most of the time. I find it invaluable since as long as I keep scanning, I just can't ignore the food or exercise!

    It's a serious disease. You are right to think about it and concentrate on the situation and your new life habits. Gradually you will find it less important to tell strangers about your ' problem ' . Try the Samaritans for a chat if needed !
