Having discovered I was diabetic at the age of 53 and gaining over 3 stone after going onto insulin, I have decided that I will not let my illness control me. Although it is difficult to lose weight when on insulin, the more weight I can lose the less insulin I will need, giving me more control.

Now at the age of 63 I have found a diet that works for me, my weight is falling and my blood glucose is the lowest it has ever been and hopefully will go even lower.

Member Since: 3/3/2007

Fitness Minutes: 98,638

My Goals:
want to be 163 lbs but not set a date

My Program:
Besides using the food tracking on SP I also exercise on a daily basis. I am fortunate in having a swimming pool and I do try to swim daily no matter what the weather. I now follow the Blood Sugar Diet and intend this to be my way of life.

Personal Information:
I am 31 years old and have retired early with my husband to SW France. We have a wonderful life here although I miss my daughter and 2 grandsons back in England.

Other Information:
When I swim I like to listen to music on my waterproof Ipod. I don't know if I will ever grow out of it but I love people like Lady Gaga,, Maroon 5 etc and love dancing like a loony. Hope I never grow out of it.

I like reading and at the moment I am into forensic science type books, like those of Tess Gerritson, Kathy Riechs and Nikki French. Try as I might I cannot get to like Patricia Cornwall even though she is classed a the queen of this genre. My new go to author is Liane Moriaty from Australia. Loved The Husbands Secret.
