Time to take stock

I am 62 years old and it has been 1 Year since I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I came to this site in a state of panic, frightened for my future, and terrified of this ailment that had a hold on me.

A year later - and with the support and help of my SP Friends - I control my Diabetes, it doesn't control me.

I hasn't been easy, and continues to be a daily battle, but with my Friends on SP and my Trackers to keep me in check I am getting to grips with the monster.

I have a long way to go with my Weight and Fitness but I know now I am not alone, that others who have fought, and those still fighting the problems of Diet and Exercise control are with me on my journey.

Member Since: 3/17/2012

SparkPoints: 3,738

Fitness Minutes: 2,115

My Goals:
1 - To learn how to cook healthy meals.
2 - To exercise every day.
3 - embrace my new Healthy Lifestyle
4 - Look after myself properly.
5 - make sure I have some Me time.
6 - Loose weight healthily, no crash diets or skipped meals.

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara, but I like to be called Babs. I am a young at heart 61, married to Peter who is 62 and we have one Son together Daniel, who is 22 in June of this year.
I class myself as Semi - retired because I would still like to work, if I can find a part time job here in Llandudno, North Wales.
For the 11 years before we moved here, from Birmingham, I worked as a Charity Shop Manager for a Large British Charity. I loved the work and would like to get back into it again, if possible.

Other Information:
I am an animal lover, and I would love to have a Cat or a little dog. Unfortunately we live in privately rented property, and the lease says - No Pets,
In the past I would have accepted that as the end of it - but my new Lifestyle means not just accepting my lot, it's about fighting for what I want.
So I am looking for a new home for us, one that will allow pets, and one that has a garden where I can grow flowers and my own veg.
Will I carry it through - you Betcha .

Thanks for your comments on my blog! You sure made me laugh as I can so relate. I'm tossing the covers off and my hubby is freezing and all bundled up. Ahhh, well, this too shall pass, lol!
