And isn't that all that matters. :)

My Motto: "Handle every stressful situation like a dog. Pee on it and walk away."

I'm not here to call myself Bunny and hook up with smoking hot single men. Though if you've got someone in mind....but I digress! I've been a Type 1 Diabetic for 21 years and am an aspiring photographer and dog trainer. The last time I was at a healthy weight, I was in my early twenties. Now I'm 32 and the stupid Wii Balance ...

I've been a Type 1 Diabetic for 21 years and am an aspiring photographer and dog trainer. The last time I was at a healthy weight, I was in my early twenties. Now I'm 32 and the stupid Wii Balance board keeps telling me I'm overweight. I'm here to change that, and I WILL.

Roll Call:

April 22, 2011 ~ Logged back into SP after a lengthy hiatus. I have no idea exactly what I weigh right now (I'm at at job numero 2 as a type this) so I'm ball-parking it until I can step on a scale.

~~Past Successes~~
WEIGHT (and stuff) TIMELINE

December 20, 2006 - Joined SparkPeople. Didn't bother coming back until;

August 28, 2009 - A week of epiphanies. An A1c of 7.6%. Frank discussion with Dr. Finally found my backbone buried somewhere under my devil-may-care attitude. Gave both an adjustment, and finally created my profile here on SparkPeople. Started just logging nutrition (not changing how I ate). Guesstimated my weight to be 190 (instead of actually checking).

August 30, 2009 - Got on the Wii Balance board for a round of step aerobics and discovered that I actually weighed 198 lbs. Could have cried.

August 31, 2009 - After discovering (thanks to the awesome Nutrition tracker) that I was eating over two thousand calories a day, I got down to business. This is the day I start eating better, striving for a goal of 1200 - 1500 calories / day.

September 9, 2009 - 192 lbs

September 17, 2009 - 190 lbs (WOOT!!)

September 25, 2009 - 189 lbs (down 9 coffee mugs YEAH!)

Finished Weeks 6 and 7 and took a[nother] hiatus. Came back to find that my body couldn't handle even 10 minutes of running, let alone 28 minutes! Soooooo: DO-OVER!!!

Member Since: 12/20/2006

SparkPoints: 15,224

Fitness Minutes: 9,089

My Goals:
Lose weight, obviously.

But more importantly, BE HAPPY. And look hot doing it - get rid of the double chin. And the back fat. And my mother's hips!



My Program:
Step 1 is to ease myself into adopting habits of a healthy lifestyle.
Strive for a weight loss goal of 1 - 2 pounds per week.
Most of all, forgiving myself if I screw up...but not excusing myself.

Step 2:
- Maintain a daily caloric intake between 1200 - 1600 calories. Strive for an average of 1400 calories/day.
- Eat less than 250 CHO / day.
- Have my daily fat intake at less than 30% of my daily caloric intake.
- Couch to 5K program.

Personal Information:
I am 32 years old, 5'2". I have a really small bone structure - I used to shop in the kiddie store. This girl is proud to be Canadian, eh! I live in Alberta, and frequently ask myself why (brrr).

I have a diploma as a Nursing Unit Clerk, used to be a PCA for a special needs child, am now an Accountant, and I'm going back to school for my CGA designation.

I'm an avid reader who is trying to break the one-a-day habit, a gardener and a hobbyist Photographer. I shoot religiously with a Canon XSi and would some day love to take it professional!
(Pictures I've taken are Copyright ME. Please don't use them without my permission, kthx!)

Other Information:
I'm often irreverent and thrive on sarcasm. Suzy Sunshine I am not; I'm a realist, not an optimist. I make fun of myself. A Lot. And then I blog about it. Why the hell not?? It's funny.

I saw your name and just HAD to know why you call yourself TSuzanne. The reason I ask is that my friends at my former job called me TSuz which was a play on T'Pol from Star Trek. LONG story. I've got to know! :)

OMG - i just realized you live in Alberta, too!
