"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
I was diagnosed type 1 diabetic 23 years ago at the age 10. I am the only one in my family so support was always a problem. I am happy to have finally found something that I can relate to. Thank you for the welcomes.

I agee with Pat in Maine. This is a great site and a fabulous team, so full of caring and knowlegable people so ready to help with advice and support. I too am Type 2, diagnosed in June of last year. I love the tracking features of the site and use them religiously. It has helped me tremendously. This is a fun team. Post often and let us get to know you. Once again, welcome!! Pat in PA.
to Sparkpeople this is a fabulous place to be. Since I find you on a diabetes team i must assume your are a diabetic. I am a type 2. I used to take medication but using Spark I have gone from A1c 8.8 to 5.6 and I am off meds thanks to Spark It is a big site but what helped me the most was using the diabetic tracker with my own food preferences. Set up your tracker and the look at the community and you will see lots of Diabetic articles to read. The diabetic challenge is an 8 week challenge using food and exercise. Exercise is a really important part of diabetes control. Welcome once again Pat in Maine USA
Pat in Maine. I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker. I will do it slowly I like it that way. Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip! JUST DO IT!
