Here I go again!
I am going to show my age, didn't Dolly Parton sing that song: Here I go again! I have been off of here since about March, started a part time job, was getting up aroung 2:30 in morining to get to work by 4am 3 days a week did that till mid May then hours got cut back again now I work 12 - 5 m, t and everyother wednesday and at least one weekend a month.
Well, my workouts are non exsistant. My mind tells me to get up and do it but the rest of me is to tired. I really need to get back i shape! I am now 56 years old I can't seem to get my priorities in order or my schedule to work out! I wish I could be the coach to my self that I used to be to others. I would just like to ask for prayers for me to get my act together to get back to healthy me!

Thanks and God Bless!!!!

Time for an update!
I am 55 years old now, boy has my life changed in the last 11 years! I had owned my own fitness center for women for about 4 years and then closed it. I gained a lot of weight back from that. I was sad to close but yet don't regret it. It was a lot of hard work but I enjoyed working with my ladies everyday! They made my day! I miss them a lot!
I have struggled with my diabeties for a long time. I think in the last few months I am starting to get it figured out. Almost! My A1C for a long time was between 9 - 13. My morning fasting reads were 250 and higher. I went on a 30 day detox from Jan 21 - Feb 19 and I was doing so good on that that I reduced my insulin intake. Well as you know at the beginning of each year your insurance makes you reach a deductable before it goes into full effect. Wel my deductable is $4000 then it goes 80/20. Well usually at beginning of the year I can't afford my insulin it goes up to $300- $600 for 20/30 day prescription. Well my insurance cost went up $30 a week this year so I pay $250 a week for insurance so it made it even harder to afford meds. I looked on our insurance site, med site, and Good RX to see what kind of deals I could get but it seemed to still be too high. My pharmacy will text me when my order is ready and I also get a price with it. Well I decided to see how much my insule was going to cost me, so I ordered it got the text afraid to open it and the good Lord is helping cause the cost was $00.00. Thank you Jesus. Now I feel like I can go on and continue my healthy life style. I was eating right and exercising with out my meds for a week and my sugar reads went high, but I have been back on for a couple of days and they are down!

I had been off of SparkPeople for awhile, I would check in and see if there was any changes but never really went on any of my team pages or posted much. and I have been posted and getting back involved since the beginning of the year and I realize just how much I miss this and the encouragement I get from fellow Sparkers. So thank you all! God Bless!

is my story: I am a 44 year old mother of 2 - son 19, daughter 17, grandmother (from son) of 1 - 22 month old boy (who is one of the cutest boys u every see.), 7 years ago I remarried ( one of the best husbands a woman could ask for ), at the time we got married I was around 20 - 25 pounds over weight. 6 years ago I was a pepsicaholick and quit, 5 years ago I had been smoking for 26 years and was up to 3 packs a day and quit, 4 years ago I had agained another 20 pounds and found out I was diabetic - and due to the medicine I gained another 20 pounds. I found this site and logged on and off for the last couple of weeks and decided to give it a try. I am one that needs something to remind me everyday and every second what my goal is. I want to get down to 130 pounds. I feel like quiting smoking was easier than losing weight. I need all the support and help I can get. Even if it means for someone to txt me saying: GET UP AND GET GOING NOW!!!!!!!!!!! I type as much as I talk so I better quit or we'll have to start another page. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
