Hi, I caught your introduction on the stop smoking team. I live in Mount Vernon just north of you and I agree with everything you said about the area and not smoking. I am on my 6th week and it's still not easy for me. Hang in There. It does get easier as time passes Good Luck! 1189 days ago
My name is Shawn, I live in WA State and I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come! * Diet is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate! 1516 days ago
Welcome Reneeve. My mom is going through the same diabetic info shock and she is a retired RN. But she is doing very well. We trained ourselves by following the guidelines at Spark People. She is down 15 pounds, and is off metformin, only taking glyburide when her sugar is over ???? well I forgot that magic number.
Be sure you sign up as a diabetic and follow the guidelines in the nutrition tracker as you plan meals. That's how we learned what to do, balancing carbs, fats, and proteins, and spreading calories out over 3 meals and 2 snacks.
