Now I sit me down to eat,
I pray the Lord I will not cheat.
If I should reach for cake or bread
please guide my hand to greens instead!
But help me Lord, if I indulge
and lose the Battle of the Bulge,
to understand that ounce for ounce,
It's Who I Am That Really Counts!

I'm a yo-yo dieter who's on the road to break that awful habit! No more diets for me, just a life-change that will start slow at first, taking one goal at a time until I have that as a life habit. Then I'll move on to the next goal and so on! I can overcome and will overcome!

Sept 2013, when I went in for my 6 month check-up, I got a wake up call. My blood sugar was "a little high," my dr said. Since diabetes runs in my family (both my mom & oldest sister had type 2 diabetes), this news shook me up! My dear sister passed away 3 yrs ago from complications to diabetes. I am taking this serious and working on a few helps I've found. Now I have a meter and am trying to lower my blood sugar levels by testing myself and eating healthier, low-carb meals.

    Ruth Ann, hopefully at the top of this page you will see a line of different topics you can click on. The first one is START and next to it is TRACKERS. Click on TRACKERS and then scroll down to where you see on the right side the "trivia" and click on that.

    If I have no idea of the answer I go back to TRACKER, click on it and start the process over until I have three correct answers.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey there - I like being your buddy! emoticon
    I hope you are having a great day. Do you have any nice plans for the weekend? We are having a young couple from our church over tomorrow evening for coffee and dessert. I am looking forward to getting to know them better.
    Talk with you later. Hugs, Jineane

    I forgot to mention that I sent you a fan to remind you that I am one of your biggest fans. I got carried away with taking about everything else but why I chose that spark goodie. Must be from low blood sugar..........if only I had chocolate!
