    Yes, I got the 6 packs, and shrunk to a size 6 on the bottom. I almost fainted when I tried on my suits for a conference, I went shopping for a new outfit. I still do Tae Kwon Do 3 times a week, the water exercise once a week-oh, I can run with no impact! At the gym I ride the bike, walk the treadmill and do the stairmaster.

    Go back to the karate, you will remember the movement and forms. You know that puts you in good shape, and it sounds like you are doing really well right now!

    Consider the Tour de France guys... average around 5-8,000 calories
    a day, body fat percentages in the single digits, and not a diabetic
    in the bunch...

    I think my problems began when I was taking in the athletes calories and then not following up by riding a bike around europe...

    Re: How low do you go? How high is too high?

    I think I may be in the groove of things finally. My last A1C (last saturday) was 6.5. Diabetics aim for 7 or under so of course I told them the meter was broken...lol

    I'm going to test again next month rather than right away. My logic is to take it as an affirmation that I am doing the right things and keep doing them for another month.

    In addition to the y every other day and walking the dog every other day(we've added hills to our path after we hit 2 and a half miles, to change it up some) I've changed my eating habits.

    Except for nuts and 100 cal snack packs, it has to be fresh - no pre-packaged anything. And I've discovered asparagus and swiss chard! eggplant still sucks though...

    Re: How low do you go? How high is too high?

    My doctor instructs me not to let my blood sugar drop too low as the brain depends on sugar to function properly. It's dangerous to drop below 50 as confusion, loss of eyesight and extreme iritability make functioning difficult if not impossible. Imagine driving a car when you drop that low. I had to be rescued by a fellow worker on the job when my blood sugar dropped below 40. I was so disoriented I couldn't move. Thank goodness he witnessed eratic behavior and came to the rescue. I now carry glucose tablets everywhere or food snacks, even to church.

    Do you guys grill or BBQ eggplant? That's the only way to have it and it tastes great.
