Time to Get Serious!

Hi, I'm Linda and live in Central North Carolina on my daughter's small horse farm where I help around the house and in caring for my computer-geek grandson. I was recently diagnosed as insulin resistant. (So that's why I can't lose weight!) I prefer not to identify as prediabetic since that seems to indicate that I can't change the course of my life. I'm here to start taking better care of myself and become accountable. I'm already doing a good amount of exercise, so that's a start.

SparkPoints: 82,911

Fitness Minutes: 20,161

My Goals:
Well, for right now I just want to get healthier and back into the jeans and such I "outgrew" a while back. And also, of course, to stave off the specter of diabetes which seems to be looming.

My Program:
I've been active at a gym with a pool for over a year now and am doing mostly water aerobics and yoga. I would get out and walk, but it's so ridiculously hot here! I'm still settling on the right dietary changes to make and am leaning toward low(er) carb, since I seem to feel better with that.

Personal Information:
These days I hail from NC, but I was born in Philly and lived all over eastern PA, Vermont and Northern VA. I had serious health problems which caused me to lose a great deal of weight, all of which is back now.

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.

Linda,
thanks for your comment. I'm not sure if stevia and other sugar substitutes have the same effect as sugar itself for everyone. For me I know that some are a problem and others may not be at all. I guess testing it out carefully is the best thing we can all do for ourselves. I had some Xylitol last night and it did not trigger a craving. I have used Splenda and that does trigger cravings.

Hey, Linda! Sorry to hear that the end of the year kicked the stuffing out of you (and moving can be so stressful)... I've been battling something viral for what seems like months already, too. As soon as I don't get enough sleep or push myself too hard, it rears it's ugly head and the coughing starts. Don't let it get you down!
