Hi! My name is Rose & I've been Sparking for a while now! My weight was at 230 when I became serious about my health & well being. 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 165 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!!!

Hi Rose,
Thanks for your kind comments..........and NO..........I am too verbose to write a book. It would wind up being 800 pages and nothing actually said! And anyone who tried to read it would wind up looking like this: emoticon

I'm still thinking of you and praying all goes well Thursday.

Yes Rose, I DO believe it. Tomorrow I'll send you an email (long and somewhat funny) about how I'm pretty sure I had a torn miniscus in the early 90's. Nothing was done about it.....long story! And YOU won't believe how it happened!!

Still sending positive thoughts. I know the pain!!
emoticon Take two and REST!
Hugs - Gwen

Thanks for the "spa visit" goodie. I'll need that after the 15th. In the interim......run, run, run, computer, computer, computer!

Rats....they're calling for thunderstorms on the 15th here. If so, that will ruin 1/2 of the Park's plans.

Oh well...............................

Have an enJOYable day dear Rose.
