Hi Sandy and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with everything here, make a sparkpage (in order to join some teams you must make a sparkpage) and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. I have added some teams I think you may like, no you donít have to join any/all, please donít think I am pushy and good luck on your journey.

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. 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.
3. 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! *~ Paula *~

My name is Sandy and I'm 52 years old. I'm a diabetic person since 2006. Last week, I received the lab report from Kaiser and it showed my A1C was 7.5. I don't know why my A1C goes up all the time even I cut back eating rice, pastas, and noodles, as well as walking more hours each day. I decide to join this club. Hopefully, somebody can give me some tips how to bring down my A1C. Thanks.
