A great time to make healthy changes! I really enjoy this web site, it makes me excited to start the day. Starting again! Been off the wagon way too long! Began eating to live Jan 1, 2018. Have lost 26 pounds and gotten my blood glucose under control again. Have reduced insulin by 18 units! My goal is too be completely off insulin altogether. Taking one day at a time and that approach is working! Feels so good to be in control again!

Member Since: 7/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 7,560

My Goals:
To eat healthy and have fun along the way. To get my Diabetes under great control instead of poor control like it was on June 1, 2009. My diabetes is now in excellent control and my doctor is so excited about my progress! Now my goal is to get off some of my current medications! That would be wonderful!

My Program:
Eating a low fat, mostly fruits and vegetables and fish diet. Tracking everything I eat and drink and staying within my limits every day.

Personal Information:
I live in Omaha, NE and have been married for 37 years. I have 3 great children and 3 of the sweetest grand daughters! My family is very close and we are together very often. I am happiest when I am with them. I am getting healthy for my grandchildren.

Other Information:
For once, I no longer live to eat, I am eating just to live. That has made my husband somewhat sad, because he still lives to eat and feels that life isn't as enjoyable as it used to be. But I have decided that I have to do what is best for me, even if it isn't that popular with him. For once, I am putting ME first!

    Just thinking of you & wanted to say Hi & welcome as a Sparkfriend! emoticon

    "How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal, and you have to be willing to work for it. Don’t give up, don’t ever give up." ~ Jim Valvano

    I hope you have a super Sparkling Sunday. emoticon

    Thank you for stopping by my yogurt blog. I love the Chobani brand and am really happy that Costco carries the 12pk variety pack. I was a Target the other day and found chocolate Chobani (a tip from a fellow Sparker). Yum! Have a great weekend! :)

    Hi. Thanks for commenting on my 200,000 step blog, especially thanks for recommending a new WII game for me! I need something new for the days that are icky outside. I love my WII FIT game -- seems to exercise my body and mind at the same time.
