What a great way to be able to keep track of foods I eat. Carbs , protein, fat, everything is charted. even down to how many calories a meal. Plus they have a fitness tracker too with oodles of ideas for exercise. I did a few of their recommended exercises plus my son and I worked out on the Wii today. I also did a 30 minute cardio dvd too. I have to say God has been blessing me with some real excellent glucose readings this past week. Praise and Glory go to Him for that.
www.sparkpeople.com is a really great site. try it!

Hi Laura. I joined sparkpeople in June. Add me to your friend list on Spark. Look for ANNIECOX. It's great to get to know people. I don't know about you, but I need all the help I can get…Annie

I joined sparkpeople a few weeks after being diagnosed. I find the nutrient analyzer to be an excellent tool in evaluating my diet. Gives a breakdown of the carbs, fats and protein. Will even give you a graft of the percentages. I also use the recipe calculator for writing and evaluating the recipes I use. Gives a pretty good breakdown of all nutrients and nutrition label for all my recipes I post on my website.

Thanks for sharing the site and your progress with us. I have been on SparkPeople's site and have gotten some great recipes and menu ideas.

I'm not a member there but I frequently use their recipe calculator. When I have a recipe without the calories / carbs pre-figured, I simply type in the ingredients and the handy calculator will give me a detailed nutritional analysis of the recipe. It's much easier and more accurate than anything I can do on my own.

I have been a member of Sparkpeople.com for a few years. It is the best site for tracking food and exercise. It also has many videos for info. Great for people wanting to be very strict with their eating and exercise.
I have to admit I haven't been as active with it as of late. I fell off the wagon at the beginning of this year.

Well Star lets you and I get off the wagon and do the site together. Nothing better than having a buddy to help and encourage right?
