So, I have another family, "Spark People". Thank you in advance for all your support. I am beginning this new and exciting journey with less than a week on the charts, but with a positive outcome already!!!
Wait a minute, let me introduce myself before I get so carried away. I am a medically retired teacher, 61 years young (not old) one daughter and one step daughter and married to a loving, kind and gentle man for 16 years. We love our home life. I love to garden in my many flower beds and he loves to dab into politics. We try to take a short trip once a year somewhere in the beautiful U.S. for a nice vacation. My life became filled with all moving and going that healthy eating and exercise was so far on the bottom of my list that I ignored it. Yes, you guessed it! Cholesterol off the chart, diabetics on the edge and facing other issues if I did not make a change. Although I am on a cholesterol medicine it was not dropping enough. I got serious. I began a daily visit to my gym. Looked into eating less fat and more fiber. Cholesterol was the lowest in over 20 years. So now I am waiting for 3 months before I can take another A1C test for diabetes. This is my chance to finally make it count. I am 5'4" and should be at a weight of about 136-140 and I am not. But... my goal is to get there at the time frame SP has given me. So as I encourage you to give it your best shot, let's think healthy and make our life worth living!
"Out with the old and in with the new"!!!
