Welcome, Vickie! You are right where you belong here at SP, because we have teams for all our issues. I belong to this and several other vegan teams, but I also belong to the Compulsive Overeaters Team, because God knows, that's me, too. Once I got the gist of using SP, I was able to stop binge-eating and start losing the extra weight. Because I'm learning to live my life as a vegan, and doing that is more important to me that getting thin fast, I'm losing slowly. Let us know how we can help you.

Welcome, R.P. Pudding,
Books that I love are "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., and "The Engine 2 Diet" by Rip Esselstyn (his son). I am not diabetic (nor do I have heart disease), but these books have turned my life around and the diet should help bring your blood sugar down, too. Good Luck to you in your journey. Good for you!

Thank you guys for the warm welcome. I have seen the Dr Barnard book and I am familiar with his work, but I must admit ( in hushed tones of course ! ) that i have not read it in it's entirity. Thank you for reminding me to do so. My sugar is way way out of control now along with my body, so I need to get it together and now !

Hi!
If you haven't already, maybe check out Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes or The Spectrum by Dean Ornish (though that one isn't explicitly vegan, it's really close). I find sticking with veganism is a no-brainer when I constantly remind myself how healthy it is!

emoticon to the team! Happy to have you here.

Living a vegan lifestyle is just the best way to be. I think you'll find lots of positive changes occur--it definitely will lower your risk of diabetes. In fact, for many diabetics, they recommend a vegan diet. So cheers to make great, positive changes in 2010!

We're here to support you.

Thank you so much for the welcome !
I did not see Oprah but I saw Dr Oz and was chilled to the bone as he talked with Carnie Wilson that elevated blood sugar levels are like shards of glass in your ateries.
I am inspired to change once and for all and get healthier.
I will stick around.
Thank you so much.

Welcome. Did you see the Oprah show today? It was all about Diabetes. It had some interesting information.
If you stick around Spark we can help you reach your goals.

Hello all.
My name is Victoria and I am new to the team.
I want to dedicate 2010, which is my last year of my 40's to total self improvement, spiritually, emotionally, financially.
I have an eating disorder which is simply the only reason why my former attempts at veganism have failed. It is a wonderful way to eat, to live and to respect the animals that I love, and I am going to re-dedicate myself to trying again and hopefully succeeding this time. My insulin resistance is spiralling out of control and if I do not get a handle on it and now, then full blown diabetes is not far behind and my mother is an amputee due to it.

I am glad to be here.
Vickie
