Hi! I'm Bonnie. I have lived in Oklahoma with my husband over 30 years but when we retire in three years we're going to move back to Northern Maine where I'm from. IT'S MY TURN!!!! Ive told him that since he made me live in this heat durning my menopause, he owes me! So he's gonna pull up his big boy flannels and make his wife very happy.
I love to read suspense novels, cook, spend time with my friends and family. I also like to take on projects of redecorating my home. My living room is ...

I love to read suspense novels, cook, spend time with my friends and family. I also like to take on projects of redecorating my home. My living room is waiting for the 'spirit' to move me to get it painted right now. Paint cans are just sitting there looking all forlorn andtrying to make me feel guilty for putting it off. I've got a 'Far-Side' sense of humor and all three of my children and many of my 9 grandchildren have inherited it. I can usually expect a good laugh when they text me.
I've been 'mishavin' where my weight and diabetes is concerned but when the doctor threatened to put me back on insulin I got my wake up call.

Congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

I used to be on Avandamet and Amaryl but switched last year to Victoza. What a difference!! I don't have the lows that I used to have, I feel more in control of not only my diabetes but my life! My A1c has gone from 7.9 to 5.6!! I'd say that's a difference!
When I first started on Victoza, I had the nausea, not bad but it was there. After 2mths I'd say, that went away and now the only side effect I have is gas...and how bad it gets depends on what I eat...no dairy for me!! lol
