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!!!

Thanks for the vitamin C Rose! emoticon

I've been thinking about only allowing myself to weigh once a month due to the ups and downs of my scale. Drives me crazy!

Hi Rose,
I had a similar experience years ago: After getting new glasses, I kept getting horrid headaches. I went back to the doctor and he discovered that the facility making my lenses read the script as 100% as opposed to the 10% it was supposed to be.
New glasses - no headaches!

Have a Sparkling Sunday evening!
