Welcome and congratulations to you. You have taken a big step in the right direction by joining Spark and this team. Lots of support here.
If you haven't already, I would suggest you ask your doctor to send you to diabetes education classes and a diabetic nutritionist. Both are tremendously helpful.

My mom had six kids. I loved being part of a big family. Routine was important to keep chaos to a minimum. In the summer we all did Jack LaLanne, a morning TV exercise program. I think that's why as adults we don't mind exercising. A not so great physical is your wakeup call. Your children can be your biggest motivators. You need to be healthy for them. Teaching them how to eat healthy and exercise increases their chances of great physicals over their lifetimes.
Well, welcome to you. NINE KIDS! Wow. It's a pretty safe bet that MOM'S needs are way, way, way low on the priority totem pole. But as you said, it's time to take care of YOU (or you can't take care of those kids!), so ask any questions. We're here for you. We've all walked the road, as it were, and are here to tell about it, so that's a GOOD thing.
HUGS to you.
