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! I exercise daily & am mindful of what I'm putting in my mouth! Hey, we CAN do this! One day at a time, we CAN!!!

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!!!

    The FitBit Charge arrived. It's up & running on the computer, but I can't seem to get it to sync to SparkPeople.

    They don't give you much in the line of instructions. Everytime I hit the little button on the side, it just keeps moving what I assume is the clock forward. I'm not getting anything else.

    I do NOT have a smart phone. I have the old flip phone so I have to sync to the computer. Aaaaargh! emoticon

    I do have your FitBit info. I won't be home much tomorrow...going to the greenhouses with friends.

    Thanks for the Spark Goodie with the sunshine! I wish you really could send me some as I really miss the AZ sunshine. This gray overcast skies give me a headache and is kind of depressing!

    No, Rose, I have not seen that commercial yet. I'm sure when I do see it, I'll probably laugh so hard I'll be threatened with peeing myself.

    And perhaps I can give Flo a few funny hints too!

    Have a great day Rose! emoticon
