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!!!

Fitness Minutes: 114,630

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!!

    Wednesday: Have my appointment w/the audiologist today. We shall see what the verdict is about the kind of hearing aide that will help me. I have my own opinion after researching, but we shall see.

    Sun again, so that’s nice! Still cold, but not bad compared to what it was over the weekend.

    HUGS and wonderful Wednesday!

    Looks like the audiologist is recommending bilateral hearing aides. I am surprised @ this, but will give it a go. Go back in 2 weeks for fitting, etc. She is very knowledgable!

    When we focus on what we DO want, rather than what we DON’T want, life becomes easy. Gail Lynne Goodwin

    Sunday: Well, about 8 in. of snow all told. Cold today! 6F right now and not going to get much warmer. Wind chill advisory in place too. It’s WINDY out there! Feels good to just stay in.

    Miss Lilly is going to have to get used to going outside for her business. She doesn’t like it a lot. Poor baby.

    Hope you have a good Sunday! Hugs and blessings.
