My name is Kathy and I am on the Conservative Christian team. I just started and I am amazed at the encouragement that everyone gives. The reason I am responding is because I feel the pain that you are in. I also am addicted, I believe, to sugar. I am not diabetic but I have had glucose tolerance tests and they put me on a diabetic diet because I passed out from low blood sugar. I struggle just like you do. I am not much overweight just 20 lbs but my friends do not understand. My struggles have almost strangled me and that is why I joined the Christian group. I realize that I cannot do it on my own. So I am here to pray for you, and I will. I believe that we can do all things through Christ that gives us strength. Christ loves you so much! I am glad that you wrote and that we can encourage each other. This is the Last struggle. This is VICTORY!
My name is Lillie, I was away from SPARK for over a year, I had previously lost more than 20 pounds with SPARK. Sugar is a real problem for me, especially soda and candy. I am type 2 diabetic, I crave soda and candy. Those two are my problems. I drink diet dr pepper, at least 2 liters a day. It seems I need candy to survive. My meds always controlled my sugar, the past few days my numbers have been way out of control. "257" fasting has me really worried. I came back to SPARK and hope I can get these cravings under control.
