Hello. My name is Dyanne.

I am the proud mom of 3 grown children (Brian, Trisha, and Shawn) and Nana to 8 gorgeous grandchildren. My grandchildren are my reason for breathing and becoming more healthy and living a long life. I have 5 granddaughters and 4 grandsons.

I am engaged to be married to a wonderful man. I have been widowed twice previously. My 2nd husband died of an overdose in 2002. My 3rd husband died from lung cancer in 2009

In 2008, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. In 2011, I was hospitalized 4 times with extremely high glucose readings (700 and higher).

In 2012, I opted to have weight loss surgery, after seeing a report on Good Morning America about gastric sleeve and gastric bypass being termed "the cure" for type 2 diabetes. After much research, I went to Mexico and had gastric sleeve surgery. It was a success. At the end of my 1st year post-op, I had lost 70 lbs and 8 pant sizes.

During my second year post op, my weight begun to creep up. 1 lb here, 1 lb there. I am a food addict. This is how it begins.

I workout nearly every day. 45-60 minutes on the elliptical trainer, or walking on the treadmill.

    It is amazing how a plan helps turn fear into butterflies – life plans built from excitement rather than . . . worries. Michelle Vandepas

    “This New Year”
    by Aleena

    emoticon emoticon

    Even during the worst of times
    When I feel the years go slipping by
    Life seems rife with possibilities
    When the New Year arrives.

    Buoyed by hope at the New Year coming
    I feel renewed and want to start living.
    This year I'll travel and see the sights,
    I'll be bold, I'll be courageous.

    I'll reach out and go beyond.
    I might even try being flirtatious!
    I'll be a new fish in a brand new pond.
    This new year I'll be brave and I'll be strong.

    Even though time does fly,
    I won't let this year be wasted.
    I'll look forward to new adventures
    And be open to opportunities I am graced with.

    I'll learn and laugh and have good times.
    I won't dwell on years gone by.
    I'll start each new morning a brand new way.
    I'll pretend it is New Year's Day!
