11 Months and Still Sparkin'!

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I was in a difficult predicament. On January 3, 2012, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, and needed to make major life changes.
It was just five months ago that I was told that I had Type 2 Diabetes. It was time to take my health seriously. I needed to start monitoring my food intake, lose the extra 20 pounds, and make some lifestyle changes. Here is a photo of me before I made the changes.
Since the middle of January, I have been focusing on my health through Spark People. Now I'm hooked! Tracking my food, exercise and learning new things about my health has made a significant change in my life. I'm not going to stop now!
I've been sparked!
Henry David Thoreau once said; "If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours." This has proven true for me.
