looking forward to healthier living by getting moving. as a 50-something diabetic with arthritic joints it has been too easy to stay in a comfortable sedantary rut. since finding sparkpeople a year ago I have cleaned up some bad habits and replaced them with water and walking. I find courage to try new activities through the exercise videos. after a year of staying the course with learning new eating habits, measurng portions, pre planning meals a week at a time I am finally starting to see the scale reflect the hard work and lifestyle changes.
I have completed round one of the Spark Solution Challenge- it was the 'learner's edition' for me. We will have spent 3 weeks on a family roadtrip vacation and then 2 weeks back at work and getting kids ready for school. I am redoing the challenge in September and adding in a combination of the 28 day boot camp, Coach Nicole's total body sculpting and Andrea Metcalfe's dvds Cardio, Strength and Pilates. Those 2 ladies keep me feeling good about moving.
Since starting spark my diabetes medicines have been reduced to half dosages- that has my endocrinologist very happy. It is another 9 months until I see him again- so I will keep working hard and see what the pay offs are by then

Thank you for the good wishes. I kept thinking I needed so much
more money to retire, but,hey, I am managing OK on the pension and have learned to cut corners all my life. I think I may as well travel and do the things I enjoy while I have relatively good health as believe that the money is not the most important thing in life. Here's to my new chapter. emoticon

It dropped to 9 Celsius last night but it was 23 today and tonight is 12. Then it will warm up we are told. Just perfect. Thanks for commenting on the photos. Glad you liked them. emoticon
