No need to stress
I am 62 and was diagnosed with diabetes 4 years ago. My fasting blood sugar level was 189 in January 2012 and today it is 176. I am about 60 lbs. overweight and I haven't been exercising at all - nothing..
It's time for a big change. I know I will have to set small goals to start so I am not overwhelmed. This time I am not going to give up. I want to live, be healthy, enjoy my life and be able to assist others in the community.
1st I want to exercise 15 minutes a day, no matter what.
2nd I want to not eat after 9:00 pm at night.
3rd I want to stick to the program.
Last, I want to beat diabetes.
I am using both the nutrition tracker and the fitness tracker. I am doing the 15 minute desk workout 3 days a week and riding a stationary bike 2 days a week. On the weekends I am walking for an hour.
I am a Florida country girl. I love my home but outside is everything: the trees, fresh cut hay, birds, flowers, my horses and dogs, stars at night, the moon, etc. I adore my sis, my mom, my husband and grandson.

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.¨¸♥¨`*,¸.*´¨`* .¸♥.*.*¨¸.´¸.*
