Here I am back at it. I lost weight before, only to put it back on like so many others have done too. This time I have a reason for starting a healthier lifestyle. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes. I did this to myself, I didn't do it intentionally but I knew the sodas, sugary drinks, candy were all bad to eat, but I got addicted to sugar quickly! The holidays, the sodas on sale, the candies for Christmas, the baking! It all added up! I went to the dr to be treated for one thing and asked, could I have high blood sugars?? When it was checked I was SHOCKED!! I cried! I was on the road to a stroke or heart attack! I'm not ready to die for food!
I know, you're thinking, "you gained it back the last time, what is different this time"? Knowing my age and what the consequences are this time. If I let it come back, I am signing my own early death certificate. At my age, I only have so much time left and I want to know I did everything I could to make my life healthier and hopefully live longer to enjoy my family.
The most important thing is, do I want to live for food or live for life? I want to live for a healthier and longer life!
For anyone reading this, I wish you well in your journey. May you have success in a healthy life style. It's your choice. Do you want it bad enough to make it happen? Because it really is up to you.

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
