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.

Thanks for stopping by my page. I'm sure my Fiancee would call me Puff too if he saw me while trying to run. For now I'll leave that as my dog's alter ego name.

Hi Ruth Ann,
Just wanted to welcome you to the Grandmother's team and also to tell you to take care of that knee. Sounds painful. Make sure you follow orders!
