When I know time is short and things that you love are coming to an end, looking back over the last 14 years can make me very sad. I started on Spark in 2007, in a great group called Fit by Fifty. It was this group of women who gave me unl... Read more
The Spark Announcement :(
Monday, June 07, 2021      6 comments

I would think by now that everyone has seen the Spark announcement that will kill the spark platform as we know it. I've been here since March 2007, and will miss it immensely! I took the time to go back over all of my blogs and was somewhat sur... Read more
I am Worn Out
Monday, April 26, 2021      7 comments

I was thinking the other day about how my life has always been about food. When I was younger, it never crossed my mind. When I was 11 and hit puberty, I was so much taller than everyone in my class. I was also heavier, even though I was not fat... Read more
Covid Vaccination

I thought it would be summer before we received our vaccinations. We had registered when it became available in January. Then our health department, local or state, changed the conditions that were covered and we no longer qualified. My husband ... Read more

Well, it’s Tuesday, December 29, 2020. Halfway through the longest week of the year, that week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. At least the sun is shining today, even though it’s only 27 degrees. But all the snow is finally melted, leaving... Read more

Well, it's Black Friday and Thanksgiving 2020, is now just a memory. This year wasn't much different than years past. We roasted a turkey, potatoes and carrots, made a sausage zucchini dressing, made my mom's homemade rolls and we had a brownie ... Read more

I had my bloodwork done last week and saw my endocrinologist and my family doctor yesterday. My bloodwork was excellent! Both doctors were happy with the labs but were equally happy about my weight loss, which was due to a huge change in my diet... Read more

I am heading to the dentist this afternoon for another root canal. I wish I had better teeth! I have always taken care of them, but was never a milk drinker when I was a kid. I don't know if that's my problem or heredity, since my mom had false ... Read more

So I decided to make some changes after my bloodwork was kind of dismal. My previous blog explains the problems. This one is one to pat myself on the back! In 54 days, I've lost 10 pounds, have lowered my fasting blood sugar to near normal rea... Read more
Goodbye Twizzlers

Diabetes is hard! I saw my endocrinologist on Monday and was basically threatened with insulin if things didn't change. Things will be changing. My A1c was 7.4% and it was up from 6.7% in December. I usually see her every 3 months, but my ... Read more

Spring is here! But wait! Is it? From the high temperatures in the balmy 40's and 50's, I don't think so! We are actually having snow predicted on Friday, WHAT?! Snow, in May, what the?? To look outside, you'd think spring. Flowers and trees blo... Read more

It's been awhile since I blogged, so I felt like I needed to do one. Spring is FINALLY here in eastern Ohio! Our resident groundhog has come out from under our barn after a long winter's sleep. He looks pretty plump too, so he must've eate... Read more
Does the doctor really know best?
Tuesday, November 06, 2018      4 comments

I've been seeing an endocrinologist since I was diagnosed with diabetes. She's pretty easy to get along with since we both want the same results. The only thing I have a problem with is that she tries to push a new drug on me every visit. I fina... Read more

Sorry, if you don't like reading complaining on blogs, because this is going to be one full of them! So here I go again, gaining instead of losing and I don't know WHY!! It drives me completely crazy to get on that scale and see it going up, w... Read more
