I'm happy to find this site and hope to get back to a more comfortable and healthy weight. I'll start out by getting the sleep I need and go from there.* I love the food tracker and other helpful tools available on SP. However, I believe I've made 'beginners' mistakes by expecting a huge change in a very short period of time.

*For one thing I still haven't got my sleep controlled. I've been through just oxygen, then to a Cpap, I'm currently using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it ...

*For one thing I still haven't got my sleep controlled. I've been through just oxygen, then to a Cpap, I'm currently using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it seems to be working okay. In the meantime, I'm learning to eat the things that are better for me and connecting with the Diabetes teams.

I invite you to read my Blogs. Also check out the links by experts on the Better Sleep Hygiene blog. I also have a Fitbit that helps me keep track of all sorts of things like my sleep which is my main concern right now and a dear necessity.

Hugs and health to all. Having SUPER SP Friends is part of the trick!!

SparkPoints: 76,004

Fitness Minutes: 57,132

My Goals:
One of my goals is to stay healthy long enough to meet other goals. So far, not much luck, but I'm still trying. I'm hoping the Bi-pap and FitBit will help there.

My Program:
Use Nutrition Tracker to keep track of what I eat and what I should eat to control Diabetes 2 and lose weight.

I love my Fitbit, especially the sleep tracker. With it I had proof I wasn't sleeping & could set things in place to help.

Personal Information:
I'm from southern Utah, moved to northern Utah at age 5. I joined SparkPeople in November 2010.

Since I'm a Leo, (August 1st*) ruled by the sun, I changed my background color to yellow. My favorite.

*Added especially for Miss Peaches (Brenda).

Irene

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries, humorous, and slightly off kilter books. And LOVE my new KINDLE. (Thank you, Helen & Bob.)

I have had my work published in "Mosaic, a Collection of Short Stories"; and "Tapestry, Poetic Threads of Life." I hope to get so I can have enough energy & creativeness to start writing again.

I RAN OUT AND PAID BILLS, WENT OUT TO EAT WITH A FRIEND, AND SAW A MOVIE. sO I HAD A GOOD ONE DAY, THEN WENT BACK TO HIBERNATING HERE IN MICHIGAN. THIS HAS BEEN OUR WORST WINTER YET.

Just though I would stop by, and tell you that I was thinking of you.

Hi Renie, I would absolutely love to. That would be awesome!

Would you be the "sole" leader, at least eventually? I just started a new job about 4 weeks ago and I can't keep up. I'll add you right now (hopefully, I can figure out how to do it). I'll let you take leadership on emails and challenges, and stay as a co-leader for a while. Feel free to take the reigns!

Love and hugs!
Gigi
