Starting a new journey to get healthier in 2018.

Member Since: 12/6/2017

My Goals:
I'm just learning to be healthier. I have diabetes and I've been working really hard at normalizing my blood sugar. I feel like I've had a lot of success and now I want to focus on living a healthier lifestyle. I'd like to eventually get off many of the prescription medications I take to regulate my health. SparkPeople says I need to lose 50 lbs. I'm at 225 right now but most of my life I've hovered around 200. 175 seems like a big change. I'm determined to get back to 200 and then I'll see if I can keep going.


My Program:
Right now I'm learning to eat healthier and make simple changes to my eating habits. I have a pretty chaotic life in terms of my after-work commitments, so my fall-back is fast food on the go, so I need to plan more thoroughly and be better prepared for dinner on the go. I have a job riding a desk all day, so I am also trying to be more active but that takes more effort mentally to overcome the self-imposed roadblocks.



Personal Information:
I'm in my late 40's and fairly recently separated after 14 years of marriage. I think that's one of the reasons my health has gotten worse - a little bit of depression and a little bit of not having to deliberately plan out meals for a family.

I'm my work life, I am a trainer for a software company. I do a lot of writing and public speaking. After work, I pursue my 30-year-old passion of performing arts as a director and producer of local community theatre. That keeps me somewhat active but it also creates a very hectic lifestyle with late hours and a lot of stress, I have three cats at home who try to keep me grounded. I live near Sacramento, California.
