"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!

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.

emoticon 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 emoticon emoticon

JUST DO IT!
