Welcome KMARTIN963 and IOEINC.

You'll find a number of diabetics (like myself) managing the disease, some of us with a dedication to eat "right".

I have to laugh, or maybe cry, when I see adds on TV for medications that say "when diet and exercise aren't enough ..." The problem is, what diet? What would be better choices? That is where some of us have more experience. I certainly know more than the dietician who tried to help me.

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes one mome

SASSYHARWOOD,

Welcome. About 2 years ago I also wanted to loose weight. That was not the first time I wanted to do that. I happened to bump into a low carb diet that for the first time in my life helped me loose weight and not be hungry while doing that.

I've been eating low carb ever since.

I'm posting to the forums for my very first time. I don't have a lot of experience doing this but am glad to finally be taking this step. I joined spark people for the same reason that many others join, to lose weight. However, another side to my joining is with the hopes that I can make friends and learn to change my eating habits. I have a strong desire to learn a healthy way to eat. I want to be able to choose the right foods and the right portion sizes to not only lose the weight, but when at a desired weight to maintain it. I have several medical conditions that are severely affected by poor eating habits and want to make changes to help myself.
Aside from the desire to lose weight and learn healthy eating habits, I love to read, write and craft. I love art and stamping. I love to make just about anything. I hope that I can make friendships, find support and learn and grow with others by reaching out on this site. I'm looking forward to the journey ahead and leaving my past where it lies.
