Hi Dawn, welcome to the team.
The road may be long and sometimes tough, but it doesn't have to be lonely with all the Sparkers out there for company.

Hi Dawn, I too am a type 2 diabetic. Isn't it fun??? I've lost about 30 lbs. so far, very slow but sure... Hoping since you are younger and have 3 young kids that yours comes off faster...

Visit the Over the Fence June Wedding Bells thread, and you'll find lots and lots of friends and friendly support. I do hope you have joined one of the diabetic teams too. I'm on 2, and they are helpful and supportive too.

Keep in touch, and YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Hi! My name is Dawn. I am a 38 yr, old, 240 lb. wife, & mother of 3, a type 2 diabetic, & pretty much alone in this journey. I'm hopeing 2 meet other people who can understand what it's like 2 be doing this as the only diabetic in the family. It is not easy buying & preparing meals for people who don't have diabetes, when you do. It also isn't cheap, but I am working on it! That is my favorite thing to say. I'm working on it! That is why I am here. Hope to hear from you. Luv n hugs to you all!
