Chipping Away at Type2 Diabetes Naturally with Diet, Exercise & Attitude!

April 21,2015
Both DH and I are doing quite well. The strength I get from controlled healthy eating, exercising and taking care of my mind body and spirit is impressive. Even my sense of humor and creativity are returning. Once the scale stops scaring me, I should be well on my way to fabulous! Don't you just love an over-inflated sense of self. It's a tickler! lol

I have been with Sparkpeople for over two years and it is a wonderful life-line. If I wander off the path, I know it a resource I can pull on anytime. People here have become life-long friends and I feel very fortunate to have them with me in the good times and not so good. Today, I am picking up the pieces again from a rough time with my husband's recent diagnosis of Stage 3 Micro-metastatic Melanoma. He doing better now after some surgeries so I can begin to refocus my attention on my health. I have a new found respect for caregivers. It is a balancing act at best. My task now is to find a way to get through these dicey times (we all have them) and not lose myself along the way. Peppered into this mix will be much laughter which I find essential to a whole and happy life. My best to you all. I am here to help anyone. We just have to always believe in ourselves! -Holly


Almost April Fools Day 2015! Still struggling with some of life's crooked roads, but I'm learning to "lean into my feelings" and let "transitions blossom into transformations". I welcome the change. This last bit of weight seems tied to who I am and how I embrace, identify and own my feelings instead of running away from them and turning to food. Always a poor bed fellow.
I have the power to put a positive spin on things. There have been lots of troubling times of late and I am trying to view them as valuable lessons that can make me stronger, happier and healthier. I can not afford to doubt myself. That being said, I must realize there is lots of me to yet transform. I best put my seat belt on in case it's a bumpy ride! I wish everyone peace of mind, body and spirit. Have faith in all precious gifts placed in your lap. Love to all, Holly



January 28, 2015 I hope I have just ended a rough patch. You know the old saying "When it rains it pours"? Well, it did just that in my world recently. Lots of things came at me at once. Self-doubt crept in while I grew more and more tired which tells me I need to do two very important things in my future. One is don't take on so much at one time even if I think I might be able to handle it and two, be prepared for several things to go much differently than expected at any given time. In short, have a tool box stocked with remedies to keep you on the straight and narrow as best you can. Remind yourself to use all your Spark resources and to take the very best of care because you're worth it. Look back and see how far you have come, then pat yourself on the back and get back on the trail. The view from the top should be spectacular!!! My best to everyone. Thanks.

SparkPoints: 20,788

Fitness Minutes: 5,280

My Goals:
It is my goal to rid myself of extra weight and keep myself centered and better balanced. I know I can do this, as I have done in the past, however this time I want to be able to handle maintenance with greater success and understanding of the health benefits. I must trust myself and filter out the unnecessary negative chatter in the world.

My Program:
My exercise either walking, swimming, biking and horseback riding daily. 'Move it or lose it' daily! Food Tracker and Fitness Tracker are imperative as well as tracking my blood pressure and blood sugars. When I am not exercising I practice Mediatation to keep myself balanced with an inner peace. I also try to keep my caloric intake below 1100 calories from day to day with "NO EXCUSES". I take full responsibility for my actions and I laid all my excess baggage to rest. Forgiveness is the key to everything. It lightens you up ALL OVER!


Personal Information:
I am a Wellesley College graduate living outside Boston. I love all cats especially Siamese. My husband and I have rescued several. I always was crazy about horses but got too heavy for light horses so I moved over to draft horses for several years. I trained, exhibited, rode, drove and showed Clydesdale horses. Now, with the support of Sparkpeople I am of a more normal weight I have recently returned to light horses. I also enjoy the arts, creative writing, all forms of comedy and gardening. I am passionate about encouraging others to treat themselves better so they can enjoy the luxury of being a normal weight. I am also renovating a 1918 English colonial home with my husband.

Other Information:
I like to think everyone has the ability to get to a healthy weight and lifestyle at some point in their lives, only then are you are able to take control for your own happiness. It is a wonderful thing. I am finally learning to embrace the process hiccups and all. Many thanks to SPARKPEOPLE!

I always thought debtors prison was such a ridiculous concept! First of all, if you're IN debt, that's like prison. Secondly how are you supposed to get out of debt in prison if you aren't working! Sheesh!

Anyhow no prison for either of us. Just handling things day-by-day.

Well, that's a good sign that the drain is only draining 80 cc (and I say the word 'only' loosely, cuz I am wishing for less! I know you are too!)

Good for you for hanging in, though. We both are. Yeah for us.

Awww, sorry to hear that that dang site is still draining. **SIGH** Hope it slows already!

POOR little fur baby. I remember when Spot had his surgery, it took him a couple of days to be more comfortable, and of course, it's more extensive for feminine felines. ARGGGG

Well, on the last load of dishes for the day . . . . I hope! Glad to get out of the kitchen and with all the food I am just NOT HUNGRY . . . on food overload just looking @ it all. But things will sort out. Just takes time.
