    Hi Debbie and welcome to our Living with Diabetes Team where you will receive lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Just post any prayer requests, questions, comments or suggestions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    You have come to the right place. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I want to see you accomplish your goals. Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. I will be here for you and try to help you on this journey to your goals. YOU can do this!!! It is extremely hard with everything else you have going on. But God doesn't give us more than we can handle. I know it will be very hard for you, but you must take care of your health first so that you can be there to care for your Mother.
    Be sure to drink plenty of water (8 - 8oz glasses a day) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of weight loss and lowering numbers. Start small if that is all you can do and add to it as you feel fit. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. Invest in a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you currently take each day. Before long you will be adding steps just to see how many you can do and how far you can go. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! YOU can do this!!! It's good to meet and have you with us.
    God bless you on your journey to a new beginning. Take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
    God's blessings to you.

    "If you planted hope in a heart today in any hopeless heart,
    If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
    If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
    If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray,
    Then your day was well spent."

    Hey Nancy,
    Thanks for added me as your friend and visiting my page. I made it OK with my diet today, Yepee! I bought a spaghetti squash today and cooked it for supper. It's a good filler with only 37 calories per 4 ozs. I saved the seed to plant some this spring in the veggie garden. I hope they grow good as I can't always find them at the store. It looks just like spaghetti after it is cooked. Have you ever tried it?

    Hi Nancy,

    Welcome to this group. I know what you mean about losing and gaining. I use to find it easy to lose but as you get older it's harder to do. I keep trying though. I am eating healthy now and have trained myself just to eat only one bite of something I just have to have, like when hubby eats ice cream in front of me. LOL. I have discovered some new things that is low calorie so have added them to my diet. I just found the 0 points progresso vegatable soup that is so good. you can eat a whole can of it.

    I wish you lots of success, keep in touch.
