It’s been nearly 6 years since I started sparkin’. Today I reached level 25. I don’t see myself stopping with Spark People because I get so much out of this website. I struggle daily with meds and eating and it will never go away. So I stay on... Read more
Progress and set backs
Sunday, November 05, 2017      2 comments

It's funny how progress can occur despite living among set backs. My weight is starting to move back down due to my never-ending persistence (and some med changes). The set back part of this equation is that my beloved career is in great crisi... Read more

Earned Level 21 today
Sunday, April 05, 2015      3 comments

I used to think that Level 20 was the highest Spark level. Once I got to level 20, I realized there were levels beyond. Today I hit Level 21. 150,000 points. In the 10 months between level 20 and level 21 I have accomplished one big goal. I... Read more

Day 5 & 6: Streak busted
Tuesday, March 25, 2014      0 comments

I'm in training this week which means lots of sitting and feeling trapped. I also gave in to some sweets so I went over on cals/carbs. Not enough hours in the day to exercise it away so streak busted. Will start over tomorrow, like day 1 ... Read more

Day 3 streak - holding on by a thread
Saturday, March 22, 2014      0 comments

I made my cal/carb range on Day 3 (today) only because it was a day full of exercise. Yikes! I hope my blood sugar is good to me in the morning. Now tomorrow is a busy day of basketball with the joyful eaters. Basically a back-to-back-to... Read more
Day 2 of a sort-of streak
Friday, March 21, 2014      1 comments

Well, as usual, I ate today. I love to eat!! EEEEKKKK! I was over on cals but did hit the carbs so it is day 2 of a sort-of streak. I ask myself where I messed up. I think it was just a stressful day and I ate more than I should have. ... Read more
Like Day 1 all over again
Thursday, March 20, 2014      4 comments

Well, I am an epic failure at staying within my cal/carb ranges.... But today I somehow managed to do it (at least on cals). So it feels like Day 1 of a streak. I am enjoying the good feeling. I want to be that Little-Engine-That-C... Read more

Thursday, December 26, 2013      6 comments

I recently added this to someone's blog comment and I wanted to re-post it here. I started with the Spark Activity Tracker about 3 weeks ago. I have never used a pedometer or anything like this before. My experience is very good and I fin... Read more
a1c on the down swing!
Tuesday, December 24, 2013      1 comments

I had my blood work checked on Dec. 16. My a1c dropped to a 7.2% (from 7.8% in October). I am feeling super about this because I feel once again in control of my diabetes. (My control ebbs and flows, has its ups and downs. Sound familiar?) ... Read more

I adore Thanksgiving. It's a great holiday to be with family and friends and to eat some great food. Now that I have diabetes T2 I have to be careful about the meal so I don't lose the day to a food coma. So here is what I REALLY want to eat:... Read more
