A New Beginning

Each day is a new beginning for us. We have a choice of continuing on the path we have always walked, getting the same results; or choosing a new path and hope for better results. I am choosing a new path with a new and improved mindset. If we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always gotten.

Each day is a new beginning for us. We have a choice of continuing on the path we have always walked, getting the same results; or choosing a new path and hope for better results. I am choosing a new path with a new and improved mindset. If we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always gotten.

In July of 2008, my life was turned upside down. After having worked since the age of 17, I lost my job and was unemployed for the first time. I LOVED my job! I tried unsuccessfully for several months to find a new job, but the good ones are few and far between, espeically for someone my age. So, I took a giant leap of faith and decided to do something I had wanted to do for a very long time, but never had the time to do it. I started a course to study to become a Medical Transcriptist. I have been interested in the medical field since I was in high school. I just love medicine (the study of - NOT the taking of)!

In February of 2009, I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. I wasn't surprised. This nasty disease doesn't "run" in my family - it "gallops"! About the same time, I found SparkPeople - what a life saver. I now know that I CAN make healthier food choices - I CAN track everything I put in my mouth - I CAN loose weight - I CAN keep it off once I get to my goal. I have set some goals, both short and long term, and I know I CAN reach them.

SparkPoints: 6,216

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goal is to loose weight so I will feel better and be able to manage my Fibromyalgia and Diabetes in healthy ways.

My Program:
Exercise and watching calories, carbs and fiber intake to help manage my diabetes.
Limiting stressors and taking life one day at a time to help manage my Fibromyalgia.

Personal Information:
I live in Lehigh Acres, Florida, (southwest area of the state). The area is beautiful with all sorts of wild animas - fox, hawks, eagles, bobcats, hogs and bears - oh my! I have two grown children, two grandsons and my FIRST granddaughter on the way in March 2009 - I am SO excited for that! I LOVE babies!! I have been exploring the Spark site and 'lurking' on some of the teams to see if I can loose weight so that I can manage my Fibromyalgia better.

Other Information:
I am currently training to become a Medical Transcriptionist. I hope to finish this course this year and find a job working from my home. I love the medical field. I like to cross-stitch and read in my 'little' spare time from studying. My favorite author is James Patterson.
