    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Wk.4 Blood Sugar Boot Camp
    flutetooter posted:
    Well, it sort of turned into a holiday resort, rather than a strict boot camp ;( with too many changes to be made in too short a time. All in all my A1c is down from 6.6 to 6.0. Considering that is a 3 mo. average, heavily weighted to the last two weeks, my food choices and low carbs have been correct. I still have a long waw to go to equal Beta's numbers and exercise program, but this is not a contest wtih him, but with myself .

    I'm off to the gym to try out my new swim fins, rainbow goggles, and flowered swim cap in the lap lanes. (tacky but fun!) They shouldn't be too crowded with 10" of new snow on the ground. I'm getting in shape for swimming in the Gulf of Mexico and kayaking on Sanibel Island.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
