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.

Member Since: 6/17/2011

SparkPoints: 82,957

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.

I'm not sick but not really well either. I'm not going to be well until I get back totally on plan and that is coming soon.
