Hi Pynetree and Byepounds :)

I am definitely loving SP, and it's really helping me stay focused. I need that.

I have been using the nutrition and the fitness trackers and try to make full use of everything on my start page. I've also joined a few SparkTeams and am trying to be active in them, and am also blogging :)

I just uploaded a photo of my Soul showing off her eyelashes.

emoticon Welcome! I hope you will love SPARK people as much as I do!

Everyone is on the same journey to a healthy lifestyle, we might be at a different place, or going a different way, but with the same goal in mind!

So make it a point to stop by often. Some of the friendliest, most knowledgeable, caring folks can be found on this site emoticon .

Have you tried the Nutrition Tracker? An invaluable tool to me!

I'd love to see your eyelashed Kia! Any pictures on your SPARKPAGE?

If it's to be, It's up to ME!

Hi 1CrazyDog :) I checked out the site tour and am very impressed by what is available here!

I iwll be sure to ask questions, Linda :) Thanks for the good wishes!

Hi James :) I would love to be an active part here. I used to be on another forum for quite a few years until it was closed a few years ago, and I still have some dear friends from that website, so I know how real these virtual connections can be :)

Low carb seems to be working for me, too. I am still working on quantity and a few other things, but I have definitely lowered my blood sugars, although they are still high. I will be seeing my doctor tomorrow and she will probably be prescribing some medication for me which will help.

Hi Pat :) I try to walk about an hour nearly every day. I break it out into 2 or 3 different sessions, and I take Sunday off. The exercise isn't something I am loving right now, but I am doing it because I need it, and I will continue to do it. I know I will enjoy it again, I have before, this is just a phase that I will walk through :P

Thanks for the welcome, Ioeinc!

DAISYBELLEKIA,
As 1CRAZYDOG wrote "stay connected". It is a virtual connection but we are real people, so get to be an active member, it makes a big difference.

I can tell you from experience that I have been overweight most of my life. I've suffered through many diets, all of them just temporary. Two years ago I bumped into low carb eating. Essentially the style of eating promoted by Dr. Robert Atkins (Atkins diet).

Suddenly it all became clear. I lost weight almost effortlessly, normalized my blood sugar, and kept my appetite at reasonable levels. Now I think of carbs as "pure evil". OK that is excessive, but I avoid them as much as I can.

Hi all, I'm 48 years old and have just been officially diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. As you can guess, this is bringing some unique challenges into my life, but I am ready for them :)

I currently weigh about 221lbs (I didn't weigh myself this morning) and my initial goal is to get below 200, then to 180 and then to 160. It's easier to think about this in smaller measurements, that way I don't get overwhelmed. Once I reach 160 I'll evaluate things again and see if I want/need to lose more.

I've been overweight most of my adult life - my highest was 290 - and over the past 10 years I've made lifestyle changes that have resulted in the slow loss of 70lbs. When it seems to be impossible to get to 200, I look at where I used to be and am very encouraged.

I've chosen to follow the Paleo diet plan which seems to work best with my blood sugar levels right now. It's not a difficult way of life for me, thankfully :) I just need to be disciplined about planning my meals and logging my food, which is why I joined SparkPeople.

I'm looking forward to being here and getting to know people :)

Oh, and if you're in Sacramento and you see a green Kia Soul with eyelashes, that's me!
