JUDY, I am 68 years young and have been diagnosed type 2 diabetic.
I have been on this site 2 and 1/2 years and my Aic went from 8.8 to 5.4, I have lost almost 50 pounds in that time 46 with Spark people. I am now OFF diabetes medication and I am doing great.
I hope you have set up your diabetic tracker. It was the best part of Spark for me and it helped me so much I love being here now.
I track my meals every day.
On the exercise front there are many chair exercises you can do . There is even a team of chair exercisers that you can join.
I hope your Dr has told you about a diabetic counselor and the diabetes education program too.
If you use the message boards you will get a lot more support. If people post questions they get answers. It is the only way we know you need help and support.
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!
