Hi, I am 52 and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in November, 2011. I have lost 60 lbs. to date and have been able to cut my metformin dosage in half. My blood sugar numbers are close to the normal range because I have been able to control the diabetes with a major change in diet and adding regular exercise back into my lifestyole.

Hi, I am 52 and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in November, 2011. I have lost 60 lbs. to date and have been able to cut my metformin dosage in half. My blood sugar numbers are close to the normal range because I have been able to control the diabetes with a major change in diet and adding regular exercise back into my lifestyole.

In October of 2012 I read "The China Study" and because of what I learned from reading the book I changed my diet to vegetarian and while not quite vegan, I have limited my dairy intake significantly. I am so glad that I have made positive changes to better my health. I feel so much better.

I live in Ithaca, New York. I work full-time at Cornell University. I have been married for 21 years.

I have two daughters, one is a sophomore in college in Buffalo, Ny and the other is a senior in high school. I am trying to rediscover things I like doing now that my kids are older and I don't need to spend all my time taking care of them.

I love SparkPeople and it has helped me tremendously with my challenges.

11/24/12 was my GET QUIT day to stop smoking with Chantix. I am a non-smoker!

Mischiefboi's Quote of Motivation :

Motivation is like a car. emoticon
When it stalls, just let it coast down hill a- ways.
Then pop the clutch, give it a little gas &there it goes
Ready to drive up the next hill. emoticon

Ah, Spring is in the air. Lovely allergies come in from everywhere.
A young lad's dream of cookin' vittles outside..WHOOSH went the fire with flames as tall as the house. Well, you don't really need a set of complete eyebrows, do ya?
Happy Spring!

Here's to ONE MORE DAY ABOVE THE ROSES!

Work like you don't need money, don't know how much things cost. emoticon
Love like you've never been hurt, love like you've never lost. emoticon
Dance like no one's watching, as often as you can, emoticon
And when you drink, drink like, you're a true-blood Irishman! emoticon

Live every day like it's your last,
They're going by, way too fast! emoticon
