For too long it's been "hanging" out with me, I mean that literally. I've watched the clothes in my closet cease to fit (some never even worn). I'm a type 2 diabetic and I know the weight needs to come off, but still we hang like best friends. We act as if we are life-long friends. Well, this "hang-out" partner has to go. It's goodbye to the weight. It's time to live a healthier lifestyle. Time for those clothes in my closet to fit. Time to show those who care for me that I care for me too.

Now is the time for me to start taking better care of me!!!

My high point, weight-wise, is 260 (Feb 2009). While to some that may not seem too high, it does mean that I'm about 60 pounds from where I want to be.

This is my year of change! No diets, just some lifestyle changes!

TIME TO GET FIT!!


Member Since: 2/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 5,811

My Goals:
1. Get healthier - drop my 60 pound hang-out buddy.

2. Learn to eat better.

3. Got to bed at a reasonable hour.

4. Get the blood-sugar level down to where it belongs: 90-120


My Program:
No less than 60 minutes of cardio 5 days a week and 6 when I'm having a really good week.

Dust off the Total Gym and use it 3 times a week to tone and shape.

I know the cardio and Total Gym will help drop the weight but ab work will ensure that I look good when the weight comes off. And it WILL come off!!!



Personal Information:
I'm a Yankee now residing in Dixie. Not that the "Tar-Heel" state isn't nice (the weather is SO much nicer than it was in CT) but sometimes it can be difficult on this side of the Mason-Dixon Line.


Other Information:
Love reading and since I'm in the technology field, I definitely love my tech toys.

Hmmm...seem to get along well with all these things that I can do sitting down. Need to start liking some things that will keep me physically active.

    Thanks for stopping by my page. Glad you enjoyed my blogs.

    I see youre one of the Blackberry SPTeam Leaders. I also love my blackberries. I have a pearl and a curve. My husband has a bold (company owned - he sells wireless service) and a curve. He wanted me to get the iPhone, but I refuse! Although, I do love my iPod touch. I just downloaded Blackberry App World and will be checking out their new apps.

    I used to support a RIM server in a Lotus Notes environment in my previous career, so I started using blackberries back when they were pagers! I am currently unemployed and will be starting an SQL Database program in May - after spending 6 years in Technology Sales. With this round of unemployment I am making it my mission to get out of Sales! I would much rather be working with technology directly than selling it.

    Im sure Ill be seeing you in the SparkTeam message boards I think I might join another I noticed on your site SparkGeeks!

    Congratulations on your weight loss and decision to get healthy! Keep up the good work!!

    Welcome to Spark. I didn't get a chance to let you know that. I was offline for quite a while. I hope it's all working out for you so far. If need I am not too far away.
