    Ha - once upon a time I was a geologist. I got fed up with walking in the rain, so I trained to be a teacher instead! I've been for a swim instead this morning - which was good and relaxing:) It looks like it's brightening up so I'll add in a walk later.

    A slightly disappointing 6.2 this morning - I think the 2 wholemeal buns yesterday had a lasting effect! Sigh - back to the grindstone - must do better since my exercise has been put on hold due to the appalling weather this week! Sick of this torrential rain!

    Hi Emma I'd say nice to see you here - but I'm sure we'd both rather not! :) It's such a lot to take in isn't it. It's nearly 6 weeks since my diagnosis and whilst I've got the blood sugars , weight loss and exercise all under control - my brain is just mashed. Read lots on this site though - there are lots of different ideas - but take what is helpful for you

    Thank you for the warm welcome! It's a lot to take on board but I'm committed to keeping myself as healthy possible. I've already acquired so much information from being here and reading through posts and being able to relate to many. I guess it's going to be a lot of trial and error but I'll eventually get my head around it all..I hope!
