Welcome to Spark People and to the High Blood Pressure team, Jeanie! You'll find a lot of tools, information and community support here to help you achieve your goals. If you haven't already discovered it, under the "articles and videos" tab up near the top of the page there is a "diabetes program," with LOTS of good information that I think will be of help to you. Also, I would encourage you to set up a Spark Page so that we can get to know you a bit better (as well as share the occasional "Spark Goodie" with you!).
Best wishes to you, and if you need help with using the site please don't be afraid to ask -- we are here for you!
