My Tyler Boo
Andy volunteering with the Salvation Army
Getting back on Track (again LOL) always determined, this time I'm just doing it , I am not depending on anyone else, not telling anyone except Spark People-- just going to make wise choices and remember that I NEED to track my food every day, good or bad....
June 2014 diagnosed as Type 2 diabetic. Thankfully Sparkpeople has tracking for this!! Saw a nutritionist & dietician and updated my Sparkpeople tracking to diabetic. Been doing ok on it -- lost quite a few pounds and trying to keep my blood sugar level. My starting A1C was 8.9, got it down to 7.3 -next check up in September.....
August 2014 Down 17 pounds since June/being diagnosed as diabetic. Hit a bit of a plateau and realized I had slacked off a bit on the portion control/measuring -- back to it with a vengeance! Hopefully will notice a change this week or next.....
I'd like to lose 5 pounds at a time in mini-goals that I have set for myself
I will not get mad at myself if I go over my limit for a day --I will keep counting and keep going until I get to my final goal.
Eating right, tracking food, reading labels...
making wise choices both when grocery shopping and eating out.
I have lived on the Jersey shore for 14 years. I was born & raised in Newark NJ -lived in Boston for 9 years but being a true Jersey girl moved back to my home state :)
I like to cook, bake, read, scrapbook, make my own cards & listen to music .
I have a wonderful man, Andy, that I love to death and a Shih Tzu, Tyler that I adore....
We enjoy camping, watching movies & visiting family at the shore.
I come from a big fat Italian family,as does Andy so there is always something going on and always a reason to eat, which I have been learning how to deal with!
Andy & I are involved in Animal Rescue and Therapy Pets (bringing pets to hospital & assisted living) We are also involved with the Lupus Foundation, Diabetes Association and Lions Club.
I love to read anything fiction (and sometimes non). I go through phases usually in the winter months I like to read historical romances, in the spring/summer I like reading beachy novels and in the fall leading to the Holidays I read Christmas stories .
I love the Hallmark & Lifetime networks and Netflix,
We enjoy being outdoors, we have a HUGE deck on our house which is awesome, we also love to go to Cape May NJ --my family had a small hotel in Wildwood for many years so WIldwood & Cape May NJ are my favorite places to be.
FOr over 60 years my family has owned/operated a n Italian bakery in Newark NJ
