I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in 2010 & was put on Metformin. I joined SparkPeople in an attempt to lose the weight & become healthier. My weight has fluctuated, but I'm around 175 now, thanks to SP & it's wonderful community! Currently, I'm not on any Diabetes medication & my HgA1C is 5.3!

Hello! Name is Rose! Struggling a bit these last few weeks & haven't been tracking like I know I must! Getting back to the basics is what's needed! I'm still down almost 25 pounds since I started w/WW's & I need to recommit, track my foods, & stay within caloric range! I'm exercising daily & plan to continue! My most recent love is spinning!!! Lovin' SparkPeople!!! Lovin' the community!!! Go fellow Sparkers!!!

Hi! Rose here! Since I've restarted my weight loss efforts, I've lost 29.2 lbs doing Weight Watchers! I track both on SparkPeople & I'm using the etools on WW's. Tracking has been the key for me...& I realize I will ALWAYS have to be mindful of what I put in my mouth! I exercise daily & plan to continue! I adore the SP community & the support of so many wonderful people! SparkPeople is awesome!

Hello! My name is Rose & I've been on SparkPeople for two years! I lost almost 70 pounds when I first joined. I've strayed for a while...& have gained a little over 30 lbs back. How? Not by not exercising, cause I do plenty! I stopped tracking! Yep! Simple as that! So, I'm back on track! SparkPeople works! The community is wonderful! Let the games begin!!!

Rose, I didn't know if you heard about the head-on collision accident that I was in. I posted an updated blog about my current injuries. I'm so proud of you for making daily healthy choices and permanent lifestyle changes, resulting in fulfilling positive results! I'm giving you a STANDING OVATION for the goals you have achieved and the progress you continue to make! I'm keeping Rick in my prayers. You are:


emoticon * S * P * A * R * K * T * A * C * U * L * A * R * emoticon


S = Set goals! Develop plans! Take action! Make progress! See results!
P = Promote regular medical checkups to achieve optimum health!
A = Approach each goal with optimism, dedication and completion!
R = Reduce stress! Eat healthy! Drink water! Exercise regularly! Sleep better! Have fun!
K = Keep track of nutrition intakes, fitness minutes, weigh-ins and body measurements!
T = Trust your choices, decisions and actions in all that you do!
A = Add variety to nutrition plan, fitness activities and personal well-being goals!
C = Create a non-food reward system for working hard to achieve healthy results!
U = Utilize behavior modification to break bad habits and challenge yourself to change!
L = Live life embracing healthy choices, positive changes and individual growth!
A = Assemble a support system to help one another stay on track!
R = Record emotions, setbacks, adjustments, progress and achievements in a journal!
