I've been a member of Sparkpeople since 2009. I've been on and off a few times, but now with diabetes I am mostly on. I love the articles and the nutrition tracker, especially that it counts carbs and allows me to track my sugar daily

Member Since: 7/7/2009

Fitness Minutes: 150

My Goals:
To lose the weight that my doctor challenged me to lose on 2/28/17. If I lose 60 more pounds he will take me off of metformin if I can maintain it
To keep my sugar under control
To keep on low carbing!

My Program:
Eating right, tracking food, reading labels...
making wise choices both when grocery shopping and eating out.

Personal Information:
I have lived on the Jersey shore for 19 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 and GARDEN . We always have an outdoor garden every summer filled with vegetables, herbs & flowers as well as an indoor garden year round with veggies & herbs

I have a wonderful husband, Andy that I love to death and a Shih Tzu, Tyler that I adore....

I work as a customer care specialist (CCS) for a major luxury retail store.

Other Information:
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 NJ lost pets.

I love to read historical fiction, cozy mysteries, beachy novels and Christmas stories.

I LOVE the fall especially Halloween!

We are cord cutters & bingewatch ALOT --some of our favorite shows right now are Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, Supernatural, Billions, Shameless, Bloodlines, Game of Thrones to name just a few :)

We enjoy being outdoors, we have a HUGE deck on our house which is awesome, we hang out back there with friends, listening to music or just enjoy the quiet with the windchimes making music with the breeze. 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

    A Special Light
    Imagine shining a bright spotlight on the path of years ahead of you. Look at the first few steps that will lead you onto that path. Now shine your light all the way to the horizon.

    When you view the journey ahead, do you feel confidence or uncertainty? Is the road clear, or are there road blocks that need to be removed? How can you maintain the faith needed to travel all the way to the horizon and beyond?

    Our values add energy to our lives and help to maintain a clear vision. Without awareness of the values upon which we base our actions, we can easily fall prey to discouragement and negativity.

    It is important to know our core values. When our actions compliment our values, we feel confident and act authentically. We bring out the best within us.

    Are you prepared to give your very best self to the journey of your dreams? If so, then let the journey begin. Life responds to one thing - action.

    The excellence within you is waiting to shine. Share your special light with the world today, and the world will reflect that light back to you!
