Healthy For Life

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes the beginning of July 2010. In August I took a diabetic education class and began my healthy lifestyle. In October a friend introduced me to SparkPeople. I have been hooked ever since. Since July I have lost 40 lbs!! I took it the slow and healthy way.

SparkPoints: 33,806

Fitness Minutes: 15,982

My Goals:
I want to lose weight in order to be healthy. I want to keep my blood glucose levels in the healthy range for someone with diabetes. And I will continue to exercise 5-6 times a week for life : ) I want to live a long, healthy life so I can enjoy my grandchildren some day when my sons ever decide to give me some :)

My Program:
I walk 3-4 times a week and do strength training 2-3 times a week. During the winter I substitute fitness videos for the walking so I can still keep my heart in shape. I walk/run with my daycare kids in our school gym too. I keep track of my fitness and nutrition on SparkPeople. I eat healthy foods 90% of the time and indulge myself one or two times a week but always in moderation.

Personal Information:
I am a Christian. I live in a small city in Michigan and work in a child care facility. I love my job. My husband is a pastor of a fairly large Lutheran church. My dog is now my kid as my sons both live out-of-state. They have brought 2 lovely women into our family and I look forward to the day when they all give me grandchildren :) I love my life!!

Hi Ann, I joined SP on 9/11/14. I have been reading everything about you and how you turned diabetes around. I have been on insulin now for 8 years, and am going thru some very rough patches which I was told would happen.
It is wonderful to read your success and get inspiration from you.
Thank you for being a friend. God Bless You. emoticon

emoticon The Motivator of the Day. What an honor.


I learned a great deal from Richard Bernstein M.D. who wrote "The Diabetes Solution". He has had Type 1 diabetes since he was 12 and was told he wouldn't live past 42 because of complications, but he is a very healthy 79 now. He has great lectures on YouTube. I got his book at the library. I have Insulin Resistance and don't want Type 2 diabetes.
