Let's make this the best January ever. Let's use all 30 days to make improvements. This is my 13th Sparkversary, so thanks to finally finding a doctor who put me on Metformin, Armour Thyroid, and Bydureon, I've been able to lose weight, with about 10# to go. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June '17, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. The doctor tells me my bone has healed thanks to my Ultra-Sound stimulator, but I still have problems because of the pins, but I'm dealing with that. . I'm continuing to exercise daily. I find Robert Cywes M.D. on Youtube has interesting talks on weight loss, auto-immune diseases, and Type 2 Diabetes.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success. "

I've been a Sparker for thirteen years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 45, 35, 33, 31 and 30. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (9), Chanel Ava (8), Lily Dona (8) and Chloe' Renee (6).

My 13th year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 71 and in my head I'm still 30.
My son, Nathan is a Cancer survivor now for eleven years.

    Thanks for leaving the note on my page!

    I use a Verizio Onetouch. It allows you to touch anywhere, not just fingers.

    I was diagnosed in 2010 and was on Metformin for 16 mths. During that time I tested 3-5 times/day. I kept a food diary so I could see the correlation between blood sugar and what I ate.

    Basically, for me, I cut out all the whites (flour, sugar, bread, processed foods, potatoes (white potatoes), pasta, rice (white rice) and processed foods.) That, combined w/exercise and using the Metformin, allowed me to get my blood sugar from 300 to a high of no more than 90 and low of 75. I still test first thing in the morning. It gives me an idea of how I need to plan my food for the day.

    I do meal planning. Definitely helps. I have recipes I use all the time and my recipes have all the nutrition information I need.

    I really eat low carb. I don't do keto. I just personally don't feel good after awhile on it. I would say that the closest nutrition plan that describes how I eat is low carb Mediterranean.

    Hahahaha! A sled Spark gift! You are SO sweet! We actually talked about getting some cardboard for “sledding” down one son’s street in Austin (which is quite hilly) but then discarded the idea because of the length and elevation of the hill.... snow is a fleeting thrill here for sure
