That is a really inspiring story! I am so glad for you that you got your Spark before you got really sick. You hang in there and keep on Sparking!

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Today I am a happy camper! Last July I got the word from the doctor that my "sugar" was "right there", meaning at the point of being declared diabetic. I weighed 275 pounds and had been battling high blood pressure for years. I was finally scared enough to do something - anything! I started watching the diet and dropped 18 pounds before bumping into Sparkpeople in November 2011. To skip all the details, I'm now 235 pounds and walking 2.5 miles at a clip 4 - 5 times a week. My BP last week was 130/80 and today I learned my HGBAIC is 5.8! My meds have been reduced and now I'm going for a walk! As an aside, I'm 65 years old (male) and my total cholesterol is 123 - Zocar has been cut in half. OK, folks - I caught my Spark ... now go after yours! Thanks, SparkPeople!
