Me and Fred - he finally got adopted!!!
Me and my new man - life is good!
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!
Lose weight and lower my blood pressure and blood sugar through a healthy diet and exercise.
Keeping a food journal, weighing once a week, exercising (at least) 5 times a week. Lots of fresh fruits, veggies and fiber. Staying away from packaged, processed foods.
Born, raised and currently living in Oklahoma, but have lived in the DC area, CA, AZ, CT, NE, KS and HI. Run a small non-profit animal sanctuary called The Jude Ranch (www.juderanch.org) on my acreage and work part-time as a nurse anesthetist. Enjoy music, piano, tennis, hiking, writing and reading.

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.
