1. I have been using a nutritionist for a year and am now continuing my weight loss efforts on my own.
2. I have used Sparkpeople before and like the food tracking aspect of it.
3. I do not have any hobbies or other special interests particularly
4. I am over 60
5. I have been married for 44 years
6. Very empty nesters, no children living at home, no pets, no plants
7. I am trying to figure out a way to have two homes in the states where my children live, but so far its seems beyond my means. Pretty annoying, actually.
8. I really really like sparkling wine (can this be a hobby?)
9. I am attempting to go vegetarian for 3-4 days per week in order to help my cholesterol issues.
10. I am supposed to be cleaning the upstairs guest room, but am blogging instead. So much more interesting.

Also, can anyone tell me how to get one of those cute progress charts I see on so many blogs? Ones that show pounds lost or fitness minutes accomplished.

I live in New England.
I am a little north of 60.
I love spring and fall. I'll take winter over summer.
I have a geriatric golden retriever (my 4th).
I spend too much time online.
I was alerted to a potential sugar problem by my eye doctor.
My very first A1c was 10 (mid-August).
Since the first alert (late July), I've lost about 15 pounds.
I've been tracking every single thing I've eaten since the first of July but reset my goals yesterday and have lost all my data.
Currently, I'm reading about and developing a plan for the 'dawn phenomenom'.

1. My name is Lori.
2. I'm 51 years old.
3. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes just over a year ago.
4. It took a blood sugar reading of almost 600, my vision being temporarily super blurry, and a trip to the ER for me to take this seriously.
5. I test my blood sugar twice a day, at least, I take glimepiride and metformin, but I have a long way to go to get this under control.
6. I have one teenage son I love dearly who goes to a boarding school 900 miles away from me. (I miss him.)
7. I have two dogs who take good care of me.
8. I used to run and hope to get back to running 5K races.
9. I'm a contractor who works from home.
10. I love music, especially classic rock, 80s, and contemporary Christian.

Hi. My name is Judy. I was last here about 2009. It's nice to see some of the same people are still here.

Ten things:

1. I am now retired and just had my 69th birthday.

2. My "baby" Kira (great niece) is getting married in August and I am a bridesmaid.

3. My other great niece, Morgan, has a daughter Ava. I babysit a lot. They are moving this week into a new apartment.

4, I have been doing weight watchers for about a year.

5. Since I retired, I have lost 65 pounds. Would like to lose 20-30 more.

6. My first husband passed in August 2008.

7. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 4 years.

8. I have 3 dogs; two American cockers (girls, chocolate) and one cross American/Cavalier King Charles. He's tan and white.

9. Had a surgery last August and three falls last year so I have slowly trying to get back into some kind of shape. emoticon

1. My name is Teresa or T
2. I have no excuses for not being a healthy weight ~ I am fortunate not to have physical restrictions and I have everything I need to succeed
3. I don't have a job however I work at our annual fair for 10 days
4. I've been married 31 years, 2 adult sons and daughter in law. All four of them are a healthy weight.
5. I've decided to change my life by eating more healthy and start exercising daily because there are things I can't do because I'm so overweight, there are things I can do but would be so much easier without carrying around 165 pounds of extra weight every second of everyday, I want to avoid or prolong complications from being over weight and/or diabetes.
6. I'm learning to change my attitude (I don't like exercise).
7. No one can do this for me and no one can make me do it.
8. I'm a Native American of the Yakama Nation and Cherokee Tribe
9. I plan, organize, direct many people, cook for - large events. People know that they can count on me to do an outstanding job on these events (weddings, feeding the community, funerals, church events). I have stopped all activities because I'm treating myself as the event! I need to put the same level of dedication/commitment into myself as I do on these events!
10. I'm striving to do 7 daily goals. Doing these will cause me to reach my long term goals of weighing around 140, living a healthy lifestyle of making good eating choices and daily exercise.

My 7 daily goals are:

1. Motivation ~ Read long list of why I'm doing this and look at pictures of myself to inspire me!

2. Exercise ~ Walk at least 15 min. Thigh workout in hot tub (pool temp). Oxycise, Wt Lift

3. Accountability ~ Post in SparkTeam and Facebook

4. Tracking ~ Sparkpeople track food, water, exercise

5. Water 12+ glasses

6. Reflect ~ What went well, what to improve

7. Prepare ~ For Tomorrow: schedule, food prep etc.

Here's a fun topic. This will help us get to know each other even better. Tell us ten things about yourself other than the obvious: I'm a diabetic, I'm over 50 and I have 50+ pounds to lose.

1. I am 61 years old and a widow.
2. I was married to 2 different guys. (First marriage in 1972, Divorced in 1980)
3. First husband and I had 3 children. (1 boy & 2 girls). Oldest son was shot and killed in March 2014. He would have been 40 in April. He left behind a Son that was 1 week shy of 17.
4. Got engaged to a man in 1980 but found out he was just like my 1st husband so called off the wedding. I found out I was pregnant with his son ( born Feb 1981) but refused to get back with him.
5. Married my 2nd husband in Oct 1981.

1) I like mathematics and physics
2) I have taken Joel Fuhrman's equation HEALTH = NUTRITION / CALORIES and applied it to various foods and found that green peppers have 4 times the vitamin C per calorie compared to oranges. This equation says to eat green peppers to get your vitamin C, and it also puts a "health" spin on low carb.
3) I like dogs
4) I control my type-2 diabetes by eating low carb
5) I used to work for IBM
6) I like classical music, especially Mozart
7) My family spans 3 nationalities, children born in France and Germany as my wife and I have lived in various places.
8) I once stuck a voltmeter directly into a plugin to show my daughter how to measure voltage, but it was set on the wrong thing and a giant spark destroyed my voltmeter (how embarrassing)
9) I've been eating low carb for four years
10) I think that intelligent (far more than us) aliens exist
11) There is no eleventh item, as I like to obey the rules

1.) I have used SP off and on since 2010.
2.) I am a 20+ year breast cancer survivor.
3.) I have learned to praise God in the storms.
4.) I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy last week.
5.) Part of the treatment for Bell's Palsy is to take steroids.
6.) Since the Bell's Palsy diagnosis and steroids, I have had to use insulin for the first time.
7.) Not wanting to have to continue the insulin after finishing the steroids, I decided I had to get back on SP and track what I eat and see how it influences my blood sugar.
8.) I think everyone on my maternal grandmother's side of the family has had diabetes.
9.) My doctor was impressed today when I told him I took the initiative to track things more aggressively than he had asked, and was asking me questions about SP.
10.) I tend to look at most things with a positive outlook. :)

Ten Things:
1. I'm rejoining Spark because it helped before. I'd lost almost 40 lbs and have regained almost 30. I don't want to have to start over totally from scratch.
2. I battle depression and I know that my unmanaged diabetes makes it worse.
3. I'm over 50 and just started dating again after almost 13 years...yikes!!!!
4. I have a 19 year old son who often makes me wish I were a drinker!
5. I live with my 73 year old mom...actually she lives with me! She's my best friend and I love having her live with me.
6. I love reading.
7. Favorite tv shows involve dead people LOL! I watch Identification Discovery, paranormal shows, medical dramas (someone MIGHT die!)...perhaps I should watch a comedy now and then
8. I don't mind walking to get somewhere, but generally hate exercising. I'm going to do it anyway.
9. I have not been managing my diabetes at all, even though I knew I should. I am really trying to turn over a new leaf starting today.
10. I am going to live better and maybe sharing with others will help.

Thanks in advance!

1. Mary from both KS and OH here--live w/ adult daughter (only child) in west suburban Kansas City
2. Separated; own a home that has my husband in it in Hamilton, OH (little bit NW of Cincinnati). I go to OH as finances permit, average of every couple of months, in the world's best road trip car. Reconciliation questionable.
3. Was diagnosed for second time (long story) just last December w/ a1c of 8.8 (boo hiss). Hyperinsulinism w/ reactive hypoglycemia runs in my family so I've been monitoring for at least 15 yrs but sugars got crazy high lat fall/winter so got an a1c done. Struggling to get metformin dosage lined out (not supposed to make a person low but it does me); I would much rather eat fewer carbs and therefore need less medication. Most of my meds are for my formerly dangerously high blood pressure.
4. 59, will be 60 in Sept and can't face that milestone in my current condition.
5. Disabled respiratory therapist--both feet completely ruined and one knee is bad.
6. Also live w/ 2 of my 4 purebred cats (other 2 live in OH w/ hubs--mine go w/ me when we go to visit) and my daughter's 2 big female rabbits--the one cat ignores them and the other one interacts w/ them peacefully.
7. Love to sew, knit, crochet, and embroider--designing stuff all the time. Also read a LOT of nonfiction w/ the occasional historical novel or Stephen King.
8. Overdependent on getting most of my enjoyment in life from food--struggling to find workable alternatives. Will feel better if I make something but hard to get started.
9. Ability to exercise is somewhat limited by my very painful foot damage so walking/hiking are out (REALLY miss hiking). Have a good pedaler that I can use for both arms and legs, plus dumbbells and bodyweight exercises.
10. Hope to make some good contibutions to this group, sharing encouragement.

Peace out,
Mary S.

Ten things about myself.
1. I live in Arkansas and have lived here all my life.
2. My husband of 5 years who is Canadian was told he might becoming diabetic
3. He is on metformin twice a day, however, we suspect that the nerve blocker drug his surgeon put him on after back surgery 6 weeks ago is causing the problem.
4. However, while he is checking his blood sugar I decided to check mine and darn if it was not high at 213
5. This means I have to get serious about losing at least 15 lbs and try my best to make wise food choices.
6. I know exercise is a key element in keeping blood sugar down but I am in a wheelchair since the age of 2 so that makes exercise moderate at best.
7. I need a support group that will hold my hand or kick me in the butt.
8. I am going to nutrition meets with my husband through a local hospital to learn as much as I can.
9. Going out to eat is something we enjoy doing together and I need to learn wise choices not let the pictures guide me.
10. Love animals with 3 cats and a beagle pup who rules the world. Also love working in the yard and can't wait to really get here and get some veggies in the ground.

Hi everyone. Looking forward to the team support. Ten things:
1. I'm 67 and working full time for myself as a Marriage & Family Therapist.
2. I lost a bunch of weight but gained half of it back and went slightly over 200. Ugh.
3. I paint and draw and am taking an art class one time a week.
4. I'm a born Californian and can't see living any where else. I live about and hour and a half from Yosemite in the gold country.
5. Married 26 years(this time) to Hank who is 83 and continues to work as a contractor.
6. Have one daughter who lives 2 hours away. She's a special ed teacher.
7. Have two beautiful grandkids, a girl 8 and a boy 3 1/2.
8. My last A1c was 5.4! I'm on metaformin
9. Last year I had a cardiac ablation for Afib and it worked. No more episodes of irregular and fast heartbeats. I'm feeling so much better but for the year before I didn't exercise as it keep triggering episodes. I need to start over again and move my body.
10. I have a 3 year old King Charles caviler doggy. Several weeks ago we had to put down our basset who was the love of my life. We had 3 bassets until they just got too old. We went to a smaller breed because we were having difficulties lifting 65 pounds of doggie in and out of the car.

I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something: and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. Edmund Everett Hale.

2) I will soon be 55
3) I was diagnosed with Diabetes about four years ago
4) I have one 26 year old son that I am extremely proud of!
5) I am getting married in 7 days!
6) I met my fiancé on eHarmony, yes it really works!
