Hi my name is Sandy and I live in Virginia beach as well. I saw your post on Virginia Sparkers. I was just diagnosed as pre diabetic and they are starting me on meds. I am hoping to be off of them soon though with diet and exercise.

Just stopping by to say, "Hi!" emoticon

Looking forward to spring. The nicer weather makes it easier to get out and stay active and of course, S.F. Giants baseball. emoticon
