Hi, I'm Linda and live in Central North Carolina, and many things have changed since I first came here in 2011. No more horse farm or taking care of my grandson. They moved to be closer to the country club and I moved into the town of Cary - where I can walk to Trader Joe's and lots of other stuff. It's been quite an adjustment and I don't really like having all the extra costs and responsibility of owning property again.

My weight loss journey was going well, even though my loss was due to a controversial method, until my thyroid went crazy in 2013 and I ended up in the hospital with atrial fibrillation. My endocrinologist was not happy with how fast the anti-thyroid drug was bringing me back to normal, so she doubled the dose, which threw me from hyper to hypo, and fiddled with things a few more times, so I felt like a yo-yo. So I gained a lot of the weight back and have not so far been successful in losing it. But I want to be healthy and that will be my focus.

Member Since: 6/17/2011

Fitness Minutes: 21,149

My Goals:
to be as healthy as possible and remain diabetes-free. I am no longer prediabetic and intend to remain that way.

My Program:
I need to get back into an exercising program of some sort. That went away when I moved. It was a very stressful time. I'm eating on a LCHF plan now and feel it's working for me.

Personal Information:
These days I hail from NC, but I was born in Philly and lived all over eastern PA, Vermont and Northern VA.

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries and have become a rabid trivia buff. I'm an event organizer for one of my Meetup groups and enjoy arranging outings for this group, from which I've made many close friends.

    Hope it's not too expensive! I'm having my air ducts cleaned for the first time right now.
