I just noticed that this team was needing a new team leader and I thought I would make myself available to do that. I have lived in South Dakota for most of my life. I did take a 20 year hiatus though when I went to college in Oklahoma and then lived in the Tulsa and Durant area for most of those 20 years. I moved back to SD in 1994 to be near my family.

I joined Spark People in 2006 and have had a struggle through the years with my weight and definitely was not one to get out an exercise. The highest I every got in my weight was 345 pounds. I was also labeled a diabetic by my doctor because of my glucose levels. It has been the past three years that I have begun watching the food I eat by reading labels very closely. I have also avoided as much sugar as possible. I have also been doing the "E" word by joining a local fitness center. I usually am an early riser in the morning so that is when I do my workouts. I am at the fitness center by 4:00 am. As I result of these efforts I am now around 220 pounds. My a1c and glucose numbers are down, my cholesterol and triglyceride numbers are good and my doctor is very pleased with the results. He is no longer labeling me as a diabetic. I am 61 years old and I feel like I am in better shape than I have been in many many years!

Well, that is a brief introduction of myself and a little of my history. Let's work together and make this team great!
