I am a 59 year RN married to best friend these past 40 years. We have 3 fabulous grown children and I want to keep staying healthy to someday see grandchildren. I have been diagnosed with DM for a little over a year and am now off all meds, controlling it with diet, exercise and weight loss and determined to stay that way. I credit SparkPeople and all the wonderful people and friends on this site who have shared their knowledge, advice and support. It will always be a journey but oh, what fabulous people I have met along the way!!! Chaucer, move over!!!

My Goals:
I have pretty much reached my goals of losing weight (90 pounds) and getting off my DM meds so now I have to keep working hard to stay that way. Feeling as good as I do, I now wonder why I didn't do this years ago. But then I wouldn't have met all the wonderful people here on SP.

My Program:
I try to be consistent with my diet and exercise to maintain my weight and keep my BSs under a tight control.

Personal Information:
I live outside Philadelphia PA near the Delaware state line (tax free shopping!) I work as a legal nurse consultant and in my spare time I like to read, crochet, walk and love spending time with my husband, children and friends. I have three grown children, Ashley 28 married and a dentist, Hayley 24 in grad school for an MFA and Alex 21 who lives with hubby and me and works is an autobody repairer. We have two rescue dogs, Indy and Menlo.

Other Information:
My favorite poem is "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. My philosophy of life is the Golden Rule (Treat others as you would wish to be treated) and I try everyday to live by it. I love life and am very happy!!

    Thursday: Found the groomer yesterday. It was a very nice drive, too.

    Gorgeous weather. Warming up.

    Today is Miss Lilly’s (and Miss Daisy, her sister) 2nd birthday! Got her a Frosty Paws (a doggie ice cream) Yup . . . you guessed it . . . .she liked it! LOL Will have a video call w/her sister Miss Daisy and Miss Daisy’s Mom!

    Clara saw the specialist. We know she doesn’t have: autoimmune thyroid disease, mononucleosis. Suspect: hyperthyroidism and definitely hormonal imbalances. So, await the diagnosis and treatment plan.

    Got lots of housework done after we got back from the drive yesterday. Wahoo.

    HUGS and happy Thursday.

    Wednesday: Well, feels good to have the hair cut. PHEW. Lots less work.

    Going to take a drive today after finishing up clean up outside in the yard. Just want to get out a bit.

    Clara has her specialist appointment today. Offered to go w/her but she didn’t want that. So . . . we wait to hear from her after the appointment.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!
