I'm a 69 year old male, turning 70 on June 26,2016. i'm married to Shirley (who has had a gastric by-pass in 2007 and has lost over 208 lbs.) I was contemplating having the same surgery, but then I came across SparkPeople. I've been at it since 2008. Even though I've had some set backs, I know that SparkPeople works for me. I had set a goal of losing 50lbs., but have found that what is working for me is to go smaller and more realistic with short term goals. I recently had my fourth heart attack. My A1C has been out of control 8.8 with triglycerides at 444.

I am currently in cardio rehab 3 times a week and have come to the web sites that I really enjoy using. I also have the mobile app. It keep me accountable, and I know that weight is no the priority in my life right now, however, when I exercise regularly and eat well, the weight will come down, as well as my A!C numbers.

I found a good quote for me in one of the Spark articles:
"Never give up� keep fighting for your dreams! "


Member Since: 7/30/2008

My Goals:
Long term to lose 50 lbs.
To be able to control my diabetes only by diet, exercise. and reduced medication!
To make right choices in foods and portion sizes.
To increase my daily activity.
Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.


My Program:
I am back at it. Even though I've been out of the loop for a long time., I realize Spark People is the place I need to be in contact with good articles, exercise motivation, and positive reinforcement.I need to log in every day because I need accountability.
I am trying to get more activity in my day instead of sitting at my desk for hours.

    Hi Pastor Joe,
    Thanks for the Spark Mail. I didn't mean to send all my friends that Spark mail but when I hit send, away it went. i feel awful about it.
    You know that you and Shirley are our very good friends in the
    "REAL" world. Irene, my good friend on Spark, is the one I'm closest to in the "COMPUTER" world.
    Dave and I thank you for your loving support and we are counting on both of you and know you'll see us through with your thoughts and prayers, love and concern. We love you and pray for you 'guys' every night. Thanks for being there for us. You're the best!
