aloha to all

I am Jill aka jwamca. I have type 1 diabetes 18years now, and need the "SPARK" to get started with diabetic control and weight loss. This is day 2 of 28 plan for me. I will say I have the tools... a insulin pump and the continuous monitor and a very supportive family. so small steps forward maybe the answer.

Thanks. I joined SparkPeople about two weeks ago and I took a while to learn to navigate the site (I'm still discovering tons). It took a couple of team searches to even dawn on me to look for diabetic teams, even better type 1 diabetic teams! emoticon Once I found this team, it still was hard to commit, you know to put myself out there. Being a diabetic for so long, food issues have been a part of us for so long...I had a hard time joining for fear of letting myself down...again. SparkPeople feels different though. A way to be proactive in my care and have people understand where and what those visible-only-to-diabetics stumbling blocks are. Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

Hi Robin!
Welcome to the team! emoticon
I laughed at your "fluffy" description, my doctor actually told me last spring that I was also "fluffy" (followed by a quick disclaimer that that isn't a real medical term.... well, duh!).

Have you been lurking long? The team's been a little quiet lately, but if you post questions you'll get answers pretty quick!
Here's to being a little less fluffy as time goes by!

Hi. I have been lurking around teams trying to figure out where I fit, and I think that I belong here. I am 38 years old. I have had type 1 diabetes for 30 years. I have been on a pump for about 9 years. And I have been fluffy for so long that I cannot remember. I have two incredible children 5 and 2 (all thanks to my pump, a really smart team of doctors, and a lot of help from above) emoticon .
When I was pregnant with both children, I was in such tight control, I did not even recognize myself. I would like to have that healthy, clear-headed feeling again, for myself and my family. As luck would have it, just as I was admitting to not being able to do it alone, and that I would really like some sort of support group, I found SparkPeople. Thanks.
Robin
