Here I am with my daughter 9 years ago! Since then I have eaten myself into obesity and diabetes. I have decided to move myself back into a healthier lifestyle through diet and exercise as I now have 3 wonderful grandchildren who I want to enjoy!!

I started in 2011 but I wasn't committed so this is the RESTART of my road to better health. I'm sure there will be bumps along the way, but it will be worth the trip!

SparkPoints: 3,571

Fitness Minutes: 105

My Goals:
I want to develop a healthier lifestyle through eating correctly and exercising. I have lost weight 2 times before, but being an emotional eater, I never learned how to de-stress without eating. This trip will involve alternates to emotional triggers that cause overeating! I am excited even though I have a long, sometimes rough, road ahead of me!

My Program:
1. Working with my doctor and a nutritionist, I have a diabetes 2 diet plan to follow.
2. I also love to walk, especially with my dog Tucker, so that will be my form of exercise.
3. SparkPeople tracking, teams, etc. will give me support.

Personal Information:
I am a biology teacher in Arkansas with a beautiful daughter and son-in-law and three great grandkids. Could life get any better?

Other Information:
I love reading, and even though I love all types of technology, I still like holding a book and turning its pages so no Nook or Kindles for me !

I absolutely love listening and learning from Joyce Meyer! Her method of "preaching" both challenges and feeds my soul! Glad to know you find her to be an excellent teacher as well!
