emoticon CHILIWOMAN77 and emoticon to SparkPeople...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

I've been on an adventure for 3 years now. I happened across this site on Friday. I'm really excited about being a member. I have 86 pounds to meet my goal. I am 53, married with 5 grown children. I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes 3 years ago. I am now insulin free (1 year), but I continue to strive to be healthy. 6 months ago, my AIC was 5.8. This month i will see if I can stop on oral meds for Diabetes. Tracking my food intake for the last 2 weeks, and walking or trying to walk 10,000 steps per day since 01.02.13. I love to cook, hike, play tennis, knit, sew and crochet, cross stitch. In the winter months it's hard to stay active, but I am trying. I work, and am happy to help others too. My husband and I love to camp, it is lots of fun. We grow and can most of our foods, and are working towards a simpler life style. I know being able to control my portions and track my carbs will help me get to my goal.
