Hi! Welcome to my page! My goal is to improve my health so that I can live well and longer. I have several chronic health conditions: type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, severe arthritis, chronic pain, fibromyalgia...I want to get to the point that my health issues no longer control me! I'm a softy for animals, especially felines and canines...not too fond of lizards and snakes though! So, welcome to my page! 7/5/2016 Since I wrote the above, I've lost weight, and regained it. Joined weight watchers, quit weight watchers. Completed the MOVE program at the VA, lost 5 pounds, and gained it back. I've also developed severe issues with my left foot...finally resulting in a diagnosis of neuropathy. Caused by my diabetes, and arthritis. I've had 3 back surgeries, 1 fusion and 2 related to implanting a spinal cord stimulator for my neck. I get discouraged easily now about my ability to move/walk, and to lose weight and keep it off. I need help!!!!! AND motivation. 8/13/2016 I will overcome my resistance to logging my food intake. I will not be the fat one at next years reunion with my childhood friends. I will walk more. I will ride my bike. When I'm in pain and discouraged, I will overcome and not get derailed. Life is beautiful.

My Goals:
1) lose 30 pounds
2) improve my blood sugar level, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels
3) decrease my pain


My Program:
I'm working on getting movement and exercise to be more consistent.

Working on tracking food daily.




Personal Information:
I'm approaching 58, but still 'feel' like I'm in my 30's!
Update: I'll be 65 this year...still trying to lose, and maintain the loss, that I started with when first joined Spark People.
I love to ride my bike, and to take walks and hikes, but my arthritis interfers too much and too often.
I'm a big fan of felines.


Other Information:
"Please God, help me find those that seek the truth, and save me from those who have found it."
