I am a 59 year RN married to best friend these past 40 years. We have 3 fabulous grown children and I want to keep staying healthy to someday see grandchildren. I have been diagnosed with DM for a little over a year and am now off all meds, controlling it with diet, exercise and weight loss and determined to stay that way. I credit SparkPeople and all the wonderful people and friends on this site who have shared their knowledge, advice and support. It will always be a journey but oh, what fabulous people I have met along the way!!! Chaucer, move over!!!

Member Since: 6/12/2011

Fitness Minutes: 91,545

My Goals:
I have pretty much reached my goals of losing weight (90 pounds) and getting off my DM meds so now I have to keep working hard to stay that way. Feeling as good as I do, I now wonder why I didn't do this years ago. But then I wouldn't have met all the wonderful people here on SP.


My Program:
I try to be consistent with my diet and exercise to maintain my weight and keep my BSs under a tight control.



Personal Information:
I live outside Philadelphia PA near the Delaware state line (tax free shopping!) I work as a legal nurse consultant and in my spare time I like to read, crochet, walk and love spending time with my husband, children and friends. I have three grown children, Ashley 28 married and a dentist, Hayley 24 in grad school for an MFA and Alex 21 who lives with hubby and me and works is an autobody repairer. We have two rescue dogs, Indy and Menlo.


Other Information:
My favorite poem is "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. My philosophy of life is the Golden Rule (Treat others as you would wish to be treated) and I try everyday to live by it. I love life and am very happy!!

    “If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem” Douglas Clydesdale Comstock

    I always remember the words my Dad said when my brother passed away in 1982. "He would not want you to grieve for him, but rather celebrate the time we shared together." That is what I'm focusing on. Oh, I still need a pretty hefty supply of kleenex, but remembering the 63 yrs. I shared w/Dad and smiling.

    HUGS oh sweet friend.

    What have you been up to? I'm getting the craft room organized so I can start crocheting again. Also redoing the spare bedroom closet. Maybe the oldest grandsons will come pick up his musical instruments now that he has moved into a larger place.
