I'm ** years old, notice it's not into 3 digits.....yet. :D but halfway there, ok, over half, BUt I'm getting offtrack, you'll find that a lot with me. I tend to wander, it's inherited, my Dad was like that...I miss him, he passed away 2/10/12 and is my incentive to lose the weight I'd regained when he was ill and in the hospital with 2 rare diseases. They'd found this VERY healthy man, rarely sick a day in his life, had a brain tumor on my sister's and my birthdays in October, 2011. He went through surgery to have the tumor removed and came out with flying colors. Re-entering the hospital Nov 2, 2011 for dehydration, he came down with not one, but TWO rare diseases while in ICU; Herpes Simplex Encephalitis in the brain, and Aspergillis in the lungs. He left the hospital the end of January after the brain tumor returned, and passed on 2/10/12...the same day a few years after my uncle had passed, and unbeknownst to us at the time, the same day my aunt would pass in 2013. I think I'm going to avoid Feb. 10th from now on! ANYWAY,

I want to re-lose those 60 pounds and whatever else I've gained, and more. I'd like to get down to 170, and I know I can do it..I just have to keep at it. I did the 60 once, so there's no reason I can't do it again.

I've had Type 1 Diabetes since 1975 and on shots, until about 10 years ago when I started the insulin pump WHICH I LOVE. My control was so much better..until I switched to the new model recently, and then my blood sugars went whacky. But I'm slowly getting them back under control, took a couple of weeks, but I have.

I married my one love on August 21, 1982 and we have 2 wonderful kids, Scott & Brande whom I'm very proud of...just ask if you dare. :D

Well, now you know something about me..oh.....a secret....I have ALWAYS hated exercise, BUT I am doing it. I used to walk 1-1.5 miles a day, but stopped that, but I've gotten back to doing exercise every morning, so that's good....at least I think so...and that's what matters, right? :)

As I always like to say, pass on a smile to another, and you pass on a smile TO THE WORLD!!

My Goals:
I would love to lose 100 pounds if not more, but for now, I'd be happy with that. I had lost 60 before, but regained it, and I think more (haven't been weighed lately).



My Program:
I've been watching my food thanks to the Diabetes nutrition plan here, exercising, FINALLY, and having a much better attitude.

Personal Information:
I live with my Husband, and our 2 kids, well 1 of them part of the time, she goes from our home to her BF's, but hey, she's over age, so that's her choice. oh, and 3 shetland ponies (our daughters) and one Golden Retriever who is spoiled rotten.

Other Information:
I LOVE the Packers, Brewers, Fishing, oh and reading Jim Butcher books, especially the Dresden Files series. I had the opportunity to meet him down in IL a couple years ago and it was so INCREDIBLE. I also love his wife, Shannon's Sentinel Wars series. I used to twitter with Jim's sister alot, she's a writer too, but I've not been on twitter lately so I miss talking to her. :(

I am very happy to know that I am able to make you smile, you always make me smile. I know exactly what you mean... I am very critical whenever I do anything. You are very creative and talented as well. I'm so glad that you were able to help your daughter and her fiancé, I'm sure they loved every single thing you've done.

Thank you for the compliments you left on my blog with my pictures. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I hope you enjoy it greatly with your family. You're right, smiling always makes me feel better and the other person as well. emoticon
