First off warmest welcome to Spark People. It's going to be a hard journey but if you stay committed even when you fall off get right back on. Log everything as if you were writing a book about yourself. Food prep is a big key. Search this site for recipes and plan meals for the week...Tupperware or brown bagging works. It's about 80-90% what you intake and the rest is activity. Try something new whether it be food or activity. In order for your body to change you have to change your mind. I can go on & on about what helped me loose 56lbs, you have to play around w/ what works for your body. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. I have a support page (link below) if you ever need some daily inspiration, recipes or if you'd like to add some input on what helps you. Stay committed in this journey!!!

It's taken me three months after insensitive diagnosis of diabetes to reach a peace about it. I've now passed through several different emotional stages;
1. Panic, incomprehension of how this could happen to me as I'm healthy (eat properly,exercise),
2. anger,
3. inability to cope with the complexity ( as I take instruction well, and what I start out doing makes my blood sugar worse!),
4. Misuse of my blood sugar machine
5. Hunting Internet for info. And finding it complicated and unhelpful
6. Optimism ( following a visit to endocrinologist)
7. Relief (finding this website and getting a menu, more importantly, being able to record what I actually eat and combine it with a pre planned/balanced menu)
8. Beginning of control (trying to print weekly shopping list, and move to planning family meals again!)

Next - get family budget back under control with coupons for the list.

Thanks for the relief!

I will be exalted in the earth.”
