Fitness Minutes: 641

My Goals:
To be able to walk a flight of stairs without being winded. To be just plain healthy and off all these meds. Not to have to prick myself all the time to check my sugar levels. To be able to enjoy a walk without being too tired to go in the first place.

My Program:
Working with my doctor and the program to tweak the carbs so my sugar levels will go back to the 70-100 range I enjoyed before I went into the hospital last year. Right now 40# will make me real happy.

Personal Information:
My name is Christine (Chris) and I am from Chicago, Illinois. My hobbys are reading historical novels, sewing (quilting especially), crocheting, counted cross and cross stitching. I have two dogs -- one is a male golden retriever and collie mix and the other is a female black lab and coon hound mix.

I'm reading "The South Beach Diet" by ARTHUR AGATSTON and I thought it was some fancy diet book, but found out he is a Cardiologist who designed the diet for his patients, with no intentions of writing a "diet book." It has recipes because he got top chefs to cook tasty food that was healthy and could be eaten while on the diet. He explains why we have METABOLIC SYNDROME/Pre-diabetes and why we have to deal with it. I do recommend reading the book. Even with your diabetes, it would be helpful and informative.

Hi everyone!!! This week is one year with sparkpeople. I figured I needed to change my numbers a little bit. My original weight -- the highest I was going in to the hospital in '06 is now on my page. My weight went from the 397 to about 415 with the start of the insulin in April. Now the weight is going down nicely and the doctor is happy with the numbers and insulin dosages. We seem to be in sinc.

My starting weight changed when I went on insulin the end of April. Was moving down stopped at 397 and went up a few pounds to 400. The new weights start there. Finally going back down again.
