In 2009 I had finally decided that I need a lifestyle change, not just a diet.


My doctor is so pleased that all my stats are well within normal ranges now as am I. From pre-diabetic to normal in 2 years!!!

I still am not diabetic in spite of the gain but don't want to get back there ever again...


Thank you Spark People!

My Goals:
My goals for 2014 and beyond:

Not to beat myself up. To realistically do what I can and not try to be perfect, which gets me in trouble.

I will lose at least 10 pounds this year, hopefully before May 30.

To get fit and be able to do whatever outdoors things my husband wants to do.
Kayaking, Hiking, whatever...


My Program:
To use all the trackers.

To keep to the calories and eating vege's and fruits everyday.

To exercise 3 days a week with some type of aerobic exercise.

Personal Information:
I live near Scottsville, NY on our horse farm. I teach English horseback riding.

I am married with 2 adult girls, who are married as well and I have one grandchild, a boy, Ryan, who is now almost 10 years old, and a new grandson, born on 5/9/11!

My older daughter and her husband and child live in the house with us. The other girl has her own home in Leroy, with her husband and new baby boy, Shane.

My husband and I have been married for 41 years ( Dec.) and are best friends.




Other Information:
"Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

Hi! I hope that you don't mind that I added you as friend. We're neighbors...sort of...I live in Macedon now, originally from Rochester and Gates.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! It's nice to hear that others can sympathize.

You have come such a long way, you must be so proud! I have no advice on losing the last 10, unfortunately I've been going back and forth with this middle 10 since March! Ugh. Time to step up my game. (and by game, I mean exercise!)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. :) Looking at your page, I realize we are sort of neighbors! I'm down near Canandaigua. Good luck with your streak...it's got to start becoming automatic eventually, right? :)
