Hi. I'm Ally a 54y/o sparker since Oct 13, 13. Yo/yo'ed for months until the end of April when I went to my doctor and said what the heck? She suggested sleep apnea, hormones(ugh), and insulin resistance. Well found out I have obstructive sleep apnea (on a CPaP now) and then mentioned here IR and a buddy mentioned this book (Metabolism Miracle) which helped her with insulin resistance.

I know for a fact that God led me here to this moment and I will give Him all the Praise!

Hiya Ally!

Read your friend feed! Great on the 45 minute walk/run! Keep up the great work! emoticon Also, took a gander at your shared nutrition tracker for Tuesday! Looks emoticon and yummy! Lots of protein! Do you always have so much? Does it work well for you? Something does! You've lost quite a bit of weight! emoticon I just concentrate on calorie count right now, shooting for 1000 total. I lost 2 pounds last week! emoticon

I've skipped 2 walk days in a row, with no good reason. emoticon I'm scheduled for tomorrow, well today (Wed). emoticon I'm only up to 15 minutes at 3 mph, plus cool down walk, maybe 10 min more.. Started walking again for 10 minutes at good pace end of June, so I am happy about building up my time! No wonder I haven't advanced much though - I only go 3 days a week if I don't skip any. I need to work on consistency more than any thing else! Exercising is my weak point! Great on nutrition now though!

Thanks for the workout shoes and encouraging note!! How appropriate!! emoticon
