emoticon I agree with Susiegkorn - you may need to get some "hands on/personal" support via a dietician, or a diabetes educator to get info and suggestions to get control. You have taken a great step though by joining Spark People - we are all here to support each other. My suggestion is to take one challenge at a time - don't try to change everything at once or you will burn out. Maybe try to tackle the soda problem first - ie everyother time you reach for a coca cola drink a cup or two of water. Water helps greatly with weight loss, and most people are not drinking enough (should be 6 to 8 8oz cups a day). Congrats on choosing to get your diabetes under control emoticon emoticon emoticon

Please get the help you need to get control of your blood sugar levels. I'm worried about you with levels like that! It may be helpful to see a dietician. I know you can do this because YOU are important!

I've had diabetes for several years now and am still in denial I guess because I haven't been doing a thing I'm supposed to manage it. I try but I keep messing up. I'm really scared now though because my glucose levels have been up around 400 lately. I have a real problem with coca-cola and sugar in general. I'm hoping this challenge will help me jump start a healthy new lifestyle.
