I have been married to my best friend & the love of my life for going on 35 years. We have 5 children, 3 of whom are married and 5 grandchildren, who are my pride and joy and reason for wanting to get healthy and to be able to enjoy life to the fullest. I have a passion for children and am the Children's director at our church. I praise our Lord that their angels always see Him face to face. I work as Farm Market Manager and bookkeeper in our family buisness. I love people of all ages and so much long to loose this weight and have the energy to do all the Lord commands me to do that it may bring glory to him! Sooo, in March I found out I had sugar diabetes and that my A1C was 10. I think I had been feeling bad for at least a year if not two. I knew we had a family history of it but was in denial. I kept thinking I would lose the weight and it would go away...however I never lost the weight. I woke up one night while we were out of town and my eyes were blood red and really blurry, I knew I had a problem. My dad tested my sugar and it was 333 and he checked it again the next day and it was in the same range. I went to the doctor that morning and got medicine and began to change my life. I have lost 21 lbs so far and my blood sugar stays in the 100 - 150 range. Mostly under 130. I am reading everything that I come across and trying to learn. How sad...that it took this scare to actually get me lose weight and realize how much I want to be here for all of my grandchildren and children. Hence the name Allforthem. I wish I had ate healthier while I had so many food choices to eat. My Lord is faithful and even though I haven't heeded the warnings in the past He is still healing me and I am being obedient to love my body and lean on Him.
My new goal is to lose 8 lbs a month. Putting me down to my goal weight of 135 by June 1 2010.
I have been on several programs and alway come back to this one. It cannot be beat for keeping track of your goals and for inspiration! I am still just trying to count calories balance carbs and eat healthy plus trying to get my water in daily and exerecise.
I am from the midwest and love serving the Lord in whatever capacity He needs me.
I love to read christian fiction and have lots of non fiction books as well. I love to do crafts as that relaxes me, I have a hard time fitting them into my schedule. I love working with my husband in our buisness and being around people.

Jen, Lets set a date for eating right and working out. My next two weeks are going to be busy. I have to be out of town the next four days for work and will not get home in time to post. I will see you all on Friday. The pups are wonderful. They were with me all weekend. I take them to ride in a 1988 ford pickup truck. They love it. Both pups sit very well when we ride. They have 12 commands. Over the last 3 days we went from shake to high five; both pups will now give a high five! Paul and I both have put a lot of time into them. They are still the perfect pups. They have made peace with the cats; they are out numbered.I will try to post tomorrow night but don't think it will happen. All my best, Carol
