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!!!

    Oh Rose....you just don't know how small my town is!

    No, there's no Pickleball here....but it sure sounds like fun! After we get electricity at our Park, and IF, we ever have enough money to add to the Park, that sounds like a good thing to put in. But it would take 5 years here, no doubt, before it became a rage here!

    I sure do miss you Rose. Loved always reading your blogs and seeing how you were doing. Looks like you have a very busy life (all that laying around on the beach). haha.. I'm not doing too bad myself, I had a pretty nasty fall on Thursday this past week. Fell on my new knee. It's pretty bruised up but doesn't look like it's broken. My wrists on the other hand is another story. fell on the sides of both of them. Right one which must have taken the full blunt of the fall (that and my right knee) is bruised and swollen but Thank God, not broken. Hope you are fairing better than me.. Hugs to you my friend. emoticon Donna

    Hi Rose,

    Yes, I did move heavy furniture by myself. And yes, I was very dangerous when it came to shelving. I was rearranging all my shelving in the computer room and they are stackable. I won't try to explain the reason for the rearranging of shelves, but when it came to stacking the top shelves, I had to climb up to the second rung and hold onto the solid wood shelving and then get them matched exactly so the grooves would fit.

    Yes, the entire time I was praying....and....saying to myself: This isn't going to sound good in the emergency room when I have to explain what I was doing.

    Ahhh...the muscles were bulging....they eyes were bulging....
    You get the picture of the 72-year-old idiot, right?
