Before I Turn 50...

I joined SparkPeople in January of 2010. I used it well for several months then quit. Since then, in 7 or so months, I have gained back 8 pounds. So today, Feb. 16, 2011, I am rededicating myself to a healthy lifestyle. My doctor is giving 3 months to get some weight off and get my blood sugars down or he is putting me on medication. I don't want that. It's time to take action. I am starting over. I turn 50 on Easter, a time of rebirth. I can do this!

Hi, Thanks for the goodie. I'm doing well and stepping up my fitness program a bit. I don't sign on very often, but I am still pushing the edges. You're doing well, I see.
