I want to lay the foundation to change how as to how I eat as an individual and we eat as a family.

I live in rural Iowa and recognize that I need reach out for a strong support system and knowledge base, if I am to reach my goals.

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

Greetings Cheryl! We are happy you have joined us on the message boards. Are you familiar with SparkD? It focus on help with all types of Diabetes, eating plans, info, etc.

Get there by clicking on Health Conditions (top menu bar); Condition Centers; DiBetes Spark*D Program. You will find all kinds of resources. If you have already visited that area of Spark and this info is redundant, please dismiss with my apologies! Otherwise visit the site and see if there is helpful info that you can access immediately.

Sorry to hear about your RA. I have a couple of friends with that condition, and I know it can be beyond challenging. As above, you can gain access to interesting and sometimes enlightening info by clicking on Health Conditions; Health A-Z; Click on the 'R'; scroll down/click on Rheumatoid Arthritis. You probably know more than most peeps about this condition, but the info may interest you.

If you are not already a member, there is a SparkTeam that you might enjoy: "Living With Rheumatoid Arthitis".

Hope these suggestions are helpful for you. Let me know if you have any questions about SparkPeople in general. Wishing you great success as you journey to better health.
