Huh??? I thought the stereotype was that all DMers are supposed to be
fat and sedentary. Mostly because of all the PR about Type 2, which is
by far the more common. 

But even Type 2's are not all fat -- nor are Type 1's all skinny -- when
your BGs are under control, your body is going to be the shape it was
genetically destined to be, which is the same range of shapes as in the
general population.
