    Bubbs, I know quite a few diabetics. They live normal lives, and one of them is, shall we say, large. He lost a lot of weight, almost got off insulin, then put it back on the idiot. I'm assuming it is Type 2, controlled by diet and pills, in which case you will do fine xx



    Neither have I

    Get levels down bubbs but don't go buying Diabetic Foods, waste of money. You can still bake and eat cake but in moderation, good luck

    I've hardly slept a wink last night, the rain lashing against the windows and howling wind All is calm here now

    mhoc. Sorry to hear about your sister, I wish her well on her journey. We're here as a family to offer support at any time xx

    Snap. How are you feeling this morning? I'm getting twinges in my right big toe joint, the one that suffers gout attacks. Not been a problem for ages

    I'm not dressed yet and as I'm not going out today, did too much this week, I might not get dressed at all

    Wendyak. You and hubster are in my thoughts daily, I hope you are able to ride this one out, it's a rough ride but I'm here for you, any time xx

    Hugs and caring thoughts to the Elite poorlies and those low in spirit xx

    Good morning from wet Wales.

    It's 3am and everyone's sleeping, so I can probably say this and no one will notice, ive got a confession to make, I've not got any sharpies, I'm not even sure what ones to get. There I've said it!

    hey bubbs I was diagnosed diabetic type 2 a couple of years ago last year I was put on metformin and I lost a lot of weight(thru sickness) and my blood tests showed last week I am no longer diabetic although they are going to wean me off metformin slowly just in case it is only the metformin that is forcing it down - I was gutted when I was diagnosed but just little adjustments to my diet now and I feel so much better and don't feel the need to drink gallons anymore good luck on your journey hun and don't waste time worrying cos it won't change any outcome xxx
    We are many we are one xxx

    So that every single post that I contribute to this thread is on topic I would just like to say I am an elite 11+ member and I hear the unjust silence of my opinions whilst I am shopping in supermarkets mainly. Just sayin.

    Does anyone think we should upload again? Ive got my receiots and ID numbers

    one submission Ive done twice already and both times it didn't give me an id number so I sent an email with pics of the receipt. I also contacted them on the MSE Quidco thread but they said to contact them via twitter of facebook. I expect if I did this then they would just say to email photos of the receipt again.

    This is going to be a long job

    afternoon all, more rain - please can everyone visualise 2 dry days for Sunday and Monday please for our bit of the wilds of Cheshire

    Eldest childs best mate is flying in from the states overnight so it would be nice if it would just stop raining for a change, just for 2 days

    There has been some intense house scrubbing over the last few days but at least we could get to the bits that needed scrubbing now that the decluttering is in full flow - you couldn't see the dining room table this morning so an extra trip to recycling was needed -aldi sized bag of books for the book bank, 2 baskets of the normal plastics/cans/bottles and 2 baskets of waste paper, huge box of plastic hangers (recently found out our Sainsbobs takes these) and a bag and box for the charity shop and an ebay parcel
    Yes I know all this activity is just a distraction technique so I dont dwell on the insoluble problems ...

    Oh is not co operating - I had to point out to. him this morning 4 pairs of trousers and 5 shirts which were located in his floordrobe. so basically after work he has changed out of work suit into clean jeans and shirt and left yesterdays on the floor every single day He brought everything them downstairs to the family bathroom and dumped everything in the bath so he was advised that washing goes into the laundry bin - its a lot of effort to lift the lid of the laundry bin.
    A stand off will now ensue as I am not dealing with his washing until after the wedding, too much else to do this week.
    So now he will have to get shirts out of his wardrobe which he never usually goes into - always just wears whatever has just been laundered as its the least effort It could well be narnia in there with a lion and a which
