Please click on "READ MORE..." and scroll down. It is a brief summary, more interesting than this "introduction."

More than a decade ago I discovered SparkPeople and actually lost 30 lbs while using it. Of course, like many people I did not make an actual lifestyle change so when I stopped working the program I gradually began putting the weight back on.

Well, now I am back because I am pre-diabetic (no history in the family but I have a massive sugar addiction). I have enrolled in the YMCA's Pre-diabetic class to learn new habits and gradually change my lifestyle before my body forces the changes upon me in the hardest of ways.

We were told to begin tracking our food. It doesn't matter what we are eating as long as we are tracking all of it. I think we are meant to learn to pay attention to the labels and what we really are eating. It's a year-long class with a slow, doable approach. Anyway, SparkPeople was, of course, my tracker of choice because it is so very supportive and has all the tools and then some that I could need to succeed!

So hello! I hope to create new supportive friendships with people that can be strong for me when I am weak and that I can be strong for when they are weak. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful evening!

    I have waited for three years for someone to even notice that comment about Reykjavík - and no one has (or at least no one commented) until you.

    You made my week!

    In truth, I love all colors of kittens, but ya gotta work with the lyrics ya got. :)

    When did you leave Cali? '83 for me!

    Awww thank you for the huge compliments. I've never been to NOLA during Mardi Gras either. Would love to go (or to the Caribbean or Brasil!)

    A trip is a huuuuge motivator, for sure. Was much more on track before last fall's trip to the UK. Much less after. Getting there, slowly. :)

    Wishing you a Thupendous Thursday!
