Welcome to spark!!! With the wonderful tools and support here, you can do it!!!!

The Lord doesn't expect us to work harder than we are able. He doesn't (nor should we) compare our efforts to those of others. Our Heavenly Father asks only that we do the best we can - that we work according to to our full capacity, however great or however small that may be.

When I read your post I had to double check to make sure I didn't write it -- I was in your shoes just a fews weeks ago. I'm so glad you found this site -- it has definitely been the most useful tool for me. I agree with the last poster -- if you haven't already, ask your Dr. for a referral to the local diabetes learning center. They opened my eyes and helped me see what I had to do to save my life. You can take control of your life, and don't let anyone tell you differently! Hang in there - we're all here to help each other!!!

Know Your Beautiful!

Try making a daily plan ~ even if it's just one thing, then stick to it. Add things as you are able. It really helps me to plan my menus so I know what I need in the house and won't just randomly eat whatever I can find. Spark has great recipes!

Also, have you gone to a dietician? When I got diagnosed I felt scared and didn't know what to eat. It really helped to talk to a dietician. My doctor set me up with one.

Wishing you the best!
