I've come a long way

I'm 28, Type 2 diabetic, hypothyroid, a wife, mother, and a recent college graduate with a new career. I have accomplished a lot in my life, and I am not ready to let this beat me!!

I've been able to manage my blood sugar by diet and am looking into good health insurance to tackle the rest.

Goal 30: 104


My actual goal is to be between a size 8 and 12, but if/when I get there I don't want to ever get complacent, so I've charted goals beyond that through the entire 'healthy' BMI range for my height. :)

My Program:
For the time being, I am focusing on a healthy diet more than anything. I would describe my diet as 80/20 paleo, but this wasn't by design. I eliminated gluten, wheat, soy, corn, HFCS, dairy milk, GMO foods, artificial sweeteners, refined sugar, fake foods and over processed foods, and it just so happened to match up with that 'label'. I choose organic foods whenever possible, and grass fed, uncured meats, free range eggs, etc. I also choose low GI foods whenever possible.


Personal Information:
Let's see, what is there to say??? Well, I was born and bred in Wilmington, NC, and I live here with my husband and our little boy. They film a lot of television and films here (most recently Revolution, Iron Man 3, and soon Under the Dome) in Wilmywood aka Hollywood East, so we tend to have some pretty awesome people around. Oh, and I'm a UNCW alum. Go Seahawks! Aside from work and family I don't have time for much else.

You can find me here:

Other Information:
I'm kind of a 'TV fangirl,' although not a rabid one lol. Here is a list of the shows I am currently following: NCIS, NCIS:LA, Haven, Grimm, Fringe, White Collar, The Big Bang Theory, Warehouse 13, Revolution, Castle, The Walking Dead, The Mentalist, Dexter, Homeland, Glee, New Girl, Criminal Minds, Elementary, Perception, Leverage, Rizzoli & Isles, CSI: NY ... and I probably forgot some others lol.

Thanks so much! I have started a little pile of clothes to get rid of because they're too big. :)

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
