You have a fantastic outlook on life. Happy pre-birthday. Your A1C is great. There are many of us who wish we could maintain an A1C below 7. To track you food, go to 'start' use the drop down and go to nutrition tracker. It is relatively easy after that. While at 'start' check the weight and put in how much you want to weigh and when you want to achieve that goal. This information will help SP make food recommendations based on calories and carbs. From 'start' you can also go to the fitness tracker to track the exercises you do on a daily basis.
Happy New Year and good luck!
