I'm a 65 year old woman who has had Type 2 diabetes since 1981. I have had heart bypass surgery. My story has been one of denial, denial, denial. I'm tired of being fat, but what I want most is to feel better, more able to do things, and to enjoy some good years of retirement with my husband.

SparkPoints: 4,068

Fitness Minutes: 1,516

My Goals:
Try to lose weight at a healthy pace, improve my heart health and keep my diabetes under control.

My Program:
I am following a low GI and GL regimen. But I'm also keeping a log of my food intake. It doesn't necessarily jibe with SP diet protocol, but it works better for me.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Indiana, but have lived in Georgia for 30 years. I'm a grandmother of 5 boys and the mother of 2 sons. And I have a great husband too! I also have three brothers, so I know what it's like to live with lots of testosterone in the air.

Other Information:
I'm an avid reader, and I like to work in the yard when it's not 95 degrees outside. I've always been a great cook, so that is not the best hobby for me. My husband and I are very active in Scottish Highland Games and culture.

Read your post about the diabetes and eye troubles and can definitely relate to them! I have eye problems, too, and would like to add you as friend. Looking forward to chatting with you.
