I've been overweight for 38 years. I have high blood pressure, take medicine; I've had both knees replaced, I was told a year ago that I was diabetic, Dr. put me on medicine. That was my tipping point, I decided to change me. I searched the internet and Sparkpeople came up. I became a member in April 2018. I have not regretted my decision. Today I am diabetic medicine free, I control it through diet and exercise. I have lost weight and getting healthier. My blood pressure is much better, still on medicine but a much lesser mg. My cholesterol is lower. My overall outlook is much healthier. I track my foods daily and exercise. Change is difficult, but staying the same as I was is not an option.

Member Since: 4/27/2018

Fitness Minutes: 44,003

My Goals:
I am currently 50 pounds from the goal I set for myself. I no longer take medication for diabetes. I take a half of a pill for blood pressure. Things are moving in the right direction for a healthy lifestyle. This is a journey for life, I know I have to stay focused and track my food daily. Exercise has helped a great deal. I feel good with my progress. I am going to see this journey through.


My Program:
I follow my own diet, portion control, lower carbs. Weighing and measuring is important.



Personal Information:
I am married, 42 years, 2 grown children, 4 grandchildren. I want/need to continue with the healthier lifestyle. I have made good progress, but not I have stalled out. I lose the same 5-10 pounds. My fitness level is good, my eating is better, snacking not so good at times. I continue to spark along.

    ...:::I appreciate your comment on my blog --About the 60's … emoticon the good ol days! ... How I would love to have all that energy again!. Thanks for sharing things about yourself too... and you get Kudos for being the only one mentioning you worked at an A&W root beer stand! Used to love going there! .. Thanks again!
    PS. You asked this week how I was doing on the 5% challenge---have to say for me, I bit off more than I could chew---that was a first and last for challenges for this kid---I should have given it more thought---as I was in the final stages of finishing a book, and getting it ready to send my publisher---needless to say, it was all consuming--but thankfully it is done and off! (I still do get my exercise in---but going solo--with my hubby) .. thanks for asking.
