I am a 54-year-old mother of three college students who works and came back to Spark People after losing 43 pounds and then gaining it all back plus some. In November 2014 my world was rocked with a diagnosis of diabetes. Since then I have been working my plan - eating a carbohydrate-controlled diet that I worked on with a nutritionist, increasing my exercise, and monitoring my blood sugar. I'm making progress, losing weight (in 15-pound increments so I don't overwhelm myself) and getting my blood sugar under good control. I'm determined to make this permanent and can use all the help I can get to do that.

Hi Meredith, how have you been doing? I am okay, but I need to step it up and start doing BETTER. This cold weather is so de-motivating (even though I hardly go outside, lol.) Hope your weekend is off to a good start.
Hugs,
Pixie

Yes, thankfully, I am in Cali, and took a nice walk around the library today. I was getting cabin fever from getting over an illness. I am sure glad I am not in the cold! My nephew moved to Kentucky to go to school there. I told him that bad winters were rare there. Well, he has had two bad winters thus far and has been there two years!

So proud of the guy. He is a good nephew.

Have a happy Friday!
