looking forward to healthier living by getting moving. as a 50-something diabetic with arthritic joints it has been too easy to stay in a comfortable sedantary rut. since finding sparkpeople a year ago I have cleaned up some bad habits and replaced them with water and walking. I find courage to try new activities through the exercise videos. after a year of staying the course with learning new eating habits, measurng portions, pre planning meals a week at a time I am finally starting to see the scale reflect the hard work and lifestyle changes.
I have completed round one of the Spark Solution Challenge- it was the 'learner's edition' for me. We will have spent 3 weeks on a family roadtrip vacation and then 2 weeks back at work and getting kids ready for school. I am redoing the challenge in September and adding in a combination of the 28 day boot camp, Coach Nicole's total body sculpting and Andrea Metcalfe's dvds Cardio, Strength and Pilates. Those 2 ladies keep me feeling good about moving.
Since starting spark my diabetes medicines have been reduced to half dosages- that has my endocrinologist very happy. It is another 9 months until I see him again- so I will keep working hard and see what the pay offs are by then

It wasn't the BF who offered up the excuse, it was my DD, who is also my spark buddy and knows I'll count shoveling for cardio. But yeah, really, only thing lame about him at times are his excuses!

You are so smart Colleen, about finding the cause, and fixing it-much like fixing a flat. My Dr is only interested in the symptoms and medicating me, he attributes every thing to the Lupus, and it's constant, multitude of manifestations. I want to control the inflammation, and am looking at changing some things in my diet to see if it helps. Thanks for your prayers, I can feel them! Many blessings on your day as well!

Hi Colleen, thank you so much for the nice bowl of soup! I really appreciated your warm thoughts, and well wishes. I saw the Dr Friday, and he made me mad because he said I could die because of my lung issues. Grrr, any way, I had a bunch of tests done yesterday so we will see. I hope you are doing well, and trying to stay warm. I saw the note about wondering if any one wore cleats in the snow! Actually, when we were little, we would wear cleat like things that went on the outside of our boots, they helped to keep us up on our feet when we walked to school. It was a mad house when every one would try and find there boots and cleats at lunch time, and once I got cut by the scramble. I think they only came in small sizes because I don't remember them past 3 grade, I think by 4th they weren't cool, and I don't think I even knew what that meant at the time, just that we didn't wear them! Any way, thanks again for the goodie, I hope this note finds you well. Many blessings-Dee
