    Hi,
    Thanks Mo for the invitation to join this forum, I see a number of others I "Know".
    I thought with some of the comments I make I would only be invited to apologise.( They will continue)
    A little bit about me,
    I am a Male, 65, live in South Africa, were we have nothing like these forums, so I look elsewhere to find them
    I grow Orchids and Photography are hobbies.
    I am a type 2, Diagnosed on 1st July 2012 ( My Daughters Birthday so I remember)I am pretty well controlled last HBa1c two weeks ago was 5.8

    I have dropped weight from 128Kg to 88 Kg over the past 3 years.
    I came across a E book called The Diabetes Miracle by Diane Kress, and have used it to change my diet, but play around with other advice as well
    Here's a link if interested(it is really Low Carb based)
    http://www.diabetesdaily.com/voices/2012/08/book-review-the-diabetes-miracle/

    At the moment I am recovering from a back op, but slowly getting more mobile.
    Looking forward to come good "Chats"
    Thanks again for the invite Very Happy

    And your 'Diabetes Miracle' book looks interesting enough that I've downloaded it already.
