In the summer of 2007, my blood sugar was over 500, my triglycerides over 1900!!!, and I was losing my eyesight. I really need to get healthy! I've cut my blood sugar to about 120 and triglycerides to about 180 but I'm still fat and unhealthy.
I've hit several roadblocks to my goal of getting healthy. My participation at Sparkpeople has been sporatic. When I stay with the Sparkpeople program, I have greater success.
This site is awesome! The nutrition tracker has made it easier to see where my calories are adding up at. The fitness tracker has motivated me to keep moving.
Thanks to all of the people who have written the articles! A wonderful source of information!
Hopefully, I can get into better shape -- inside and out!

Member Since: 3/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 547

My Goals:
I want to feel better and have more energy. I would love to be able to hike, bike, and canoe when we go camping. I need to get healthy or I'll literally drop from a heart attack or stroke.

My Program:
By tracking my food I'll be able to control my blood sugar and sodium intake.
By tracking my exercise I will be able to motivate myself to exercise more often.

Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin where cheese rules! Cheese and brats and good, fat-laddened comfort foods! I'm diabetic and over 55, which means I have a spare tire around my middle! I'm a factory worker and a grandma. I love camping, fishing, and sightseeing and hope this site can help me get the most out of my camping weekends!

Other Information:
I love to read crime dramas such as John Sanford writes and mysteries. I write logic puzzles for Dell puzzle books. (Notice that what I like to do are sedentary in nature!)

    A big hello and welcome to Sparks. I hope your journey here will be a blessing to you. I have almost been here a year and I'm still loving it. There is a lot of info you will recieve and friends waiting to be made to help encourage you along the way. Try not to let this place overwhelm you. It will take a couple of weeks before you feel like you know what your doing. No question is a dumb question. We all had to ask a lot of them. Stay focused, it is a long journey. But one we are doing together. If you need anything just let me know.

    Blessings, Susan
