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!!!

    You're right, Rose. We have to just keep getting back on track, staying there as long as possible, and when we stumble...get up and get going again. It's life. Hopefully, like the toddler learning to walk, our stumbles will become fewer and farther between. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! WE CAN DO THIS!!! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    I can't believe how time flies! Hope you have a fantastic trip. I just got back today, Monday, at 7pm. Long day of travel. I got to see the mall of America, and we also went to the Como park zoo and conservatory. She has a lovely townhouse. She loves to drink coffee of a morning and watch the birds and squirrels just like her momma. emoticon

    Just stopping in to say hello. How's the weather down your way? emoticon I'm getting ready to fly to Minnesota Friday to see my beautiful daughter. What's' new with you?

    I hope your daughter's fiancée didn't have a lot of metal that had to be removed. I can't imagine the pain he might be experiencing.

    Still praying! emoticon to him!
