Hey there, I'm pretty new to this "club" as well. I was diagnosed on April 6. My doctor sent me to a dietitian that specializes in diabetes. It has really helped. Perhaps you could ask your doctor for a referrell or just call your local hospital. I learned that a lot, especially about foods. Did you know that peas are a starch? I had no clue. Anyway, sorry about the diagnoses, but congrats on the weight loss.

A book I have been reading that I like is called, The First Year—Type 2 Diabetes by Gretchen Becker. She really helps put a lot of stuff in layman's terms.
