LIVING A SPARKLING LIFE!

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!!!

No, I hadn't heard about the fire. I'm sure the replacement will be so much better and hopefully they will change time slots....maybe you could say something to the directors?
Come visit...I'd love to...but you're talking to "Miss Chicken" here. I don't drive outside of my little 'burg (well maybe 30 mile radius), I had an extremely bad experience with flying, and not fond of boats. Did go to CA by train once, but that was with my husband....travelling alone would petrify me. So........
Even if I somehow got there...one "push-round" on the bike pedals in the spin class would have me totally exhausted!!!!! I'm afraid I "ain't" what I used to be.
The other problem: I have so many projects, committees, etc. that I'm involved in, I'm lucky to get any exercise in. And now I may be getting involved in another: This one involves changes in a roadway system that I was against 10 years ago because I felt it was unsafe. And 1 year after PennDot abandoned the idea, the accident happened killing my husband and the motorcyclist who broadsided us....exactly for the safety reasons I previously expressed concerns about. Now they're bringing the project back up for consideration.
Sorry to be so long in my response, but I have "my big girl panties in an uproar" over this.
Okay, finally...someday I might surprise you and tell you I'm headed your way! Have a SUPER evening Rose and thanks for always being there for me!
Gwen

Thanks for the Spark Goodie! To be honest, I had forgotten that diabetes is what prompted you to lose. I just remember how great you lost! I hope I'm as successful. I'm down 22 lbs so it is coming off. I have no choice any longer but to follow the diet. All my poor choices in the past have caught up with me.
