I have just found out my blood sugars are to high. I'm trying to figure out what to eat, etc. My Dr. is on maternity leave and the one I saw wasn't much help. I got my tracking here changed to diabetic tonight. Good luck to you. This is a great site

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated.
I’ve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

Hi! I joined to get help counting carbs. I am milimeters from full fledged type 2. I counted carbs during my last pregnancy (a surprise pregnancy at 47, he's 9 now!) It was do able. Now I need to do it again before the Dr orders it. My sugars are creeping up and up and I knew something was up I was feeling pretty yucky. I also need to lose weight of course.
