I'm Debbie and I'm taking it a day at a time

I've been overweight all of my adult life. Getting tired of the yo yoing. In the year 2000 i was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. Turning a deaf ear to the diagnosis i felt "now that i'm taking meds i can eat what I want and not worry aobut the diabetes" How wrong i was. It took an almost fatal accident stemming from a blackout after a 400 blood sugar reading and a fall down a flight of stairs which could haae been much worst in the injury area. I was so lucky. Someone was watching ...

It took an almost fatal accident stemming from a blackout after a 400 blood sugar reading and a fall down a flight of stairs which could haae been much worst in the injury area. I was so lucky. Someone was watching over me. Finally some sense was knocked into my thick head. I've been eating healthy ever since. Not only making healthy choices, i exercise 6 days a week. Since last November I have lost 40 lbs. I enjoy using my sense of humor along the way. It helps burn calories when you laugh. Today i have normal blood sugar readings. I feel good, look good and I'd like to love aobut 40-50 more pounds. I've come this far, I know I can do it. I have faith in myself and Love me more today than i ever have. I'm so glad i was introduced to Spark People by a friend. It really helps to track my food and exercise. I like writing about my feelings, my emotions, my dreams.

Being almost totally Deaf/legally blind has it's drawbacks. But today I am comfortable with myself for who I am. It has not always been this way. It is the main reason for my Emotional eating disorder that triggered Binge Eating normally at night. That is in my past thanks to SparkPeople.

Debbie, just had to stop by to thank you. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog, " Immediate Stress Relief". You look like an absolutely delightful person to know so I added you as a friend. I hope that is OK.

I'm glad you like the new picture, Debbie. It was taken a couple of years ago in Texas by our former teammate, Paula (Little Teapot), when we got together in her town. She took the other one I had on my page, too.

Hi Debs. Fred was messing with the TV-It's fairly new to us and especially me, I have no real interest in messing with it.

Now Fred's eyes are less sharp with the very small print I read it and he does it. We were going to watch a Netflix and when Fred turned it on the menu came up saying the Beatles tribute was recorded.
We sat and watched it and loved it and I thought about you telling me it was so good.
The TV is a satellite TV and you can record store and replay but we have looked at the book and there is no way to do it. I am so sorry. I wonder if it will be on a DVD, we will have to check that out. HUGS.
By the way did you read about the subscriptions I sent it around that time.
I messed with friend feed but I get friend feeds from all over some people just click I like on everything. Some people had 6 or 8 clicks so I had to go through almost 200 e-mails.
A lot of my friends have their pages to private I cannot imagine how that would work. I like to talk to people . HUGS ad Much love Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I missed the Beatles we were supposed to record it but we forgot. I am glad you liked them we always did.

To get you Spark subscriptions. Go to your Start page and you will see the word START on the left Side.
Under the word START there are 2 options one side says "ACCOUNTS" and the other side says "CHANGE YOUR E_MAIL PREFERENCES"

. When you open it up there are places to change things like Articles and e-mails just click the ones you want and REMEMBER to hit the finish button after to SAV E YOUR CHANGES.
