Welcome to My Page!!!

Now I sit me down to eat,
I pray the Lord I will not cheat.
If I should reach for cake or bread
please guide my hand to greens instead!
But help me Lord, if I indulge
and lose the Battle of the Bulge,
to understand that ounce for ounce,
It's Who I Am That Really Counts!

I'm a yo-yo dieter who's on the road to break that awful habit! No more diets for me, just a life-change that will start slow at first, taking one goal at a time ...

I'm a yo-yo dieter who's on the road to break that awful habit! No more diets for me, just a life-change that will start slow at first, taking one goal at a time until I have that as a life habit. Then I'll move on to the next goal and so on! I can overcome and will overcome!

Sept 2013, when I went in for my 6 month check-up, I got a wake up call. My blood sugar was "a little high," my dr said. Since diabetes runs in my family (both my mom & oldest sister had type 2 diabetes), this news shook me up! My dear sister passed away 3 yrs ago from complications to diabetes. I am taking this serious and working on a few helps I've found. Now I have a meter and am trying to lower my blood sugar levels by testing myself and eating healthier, low-carb meals.
