My Goals:
I'd like to drop a couple of dress sizes before my younger son's wedding in August. I'd also like to have more energy and a flatter abdomen.

My Program:
My plan is to exercise in some way every day and watch my eating, especially in the evening, and find healthier foods.

Personal Information:
I live just west of Akron, Ohio. I started out teaching English and German in a high school near here, but quit once I had my 2 sons. Thankfully, I haven't had to work and have spent quite a bit of time volunteering at school and at church. A few years ago I hopped into the job market for a couple years and worked in the office at Dillard's. It was fun while it lasted.

Other Information:
Laughter is good medicine.

Thanks for stopping by my A1C blog. HbA1c is a lab test that shows the average level of blood sugar (glucose) over the previous 3 months. It shows how well you are controlling your diabetes. It's a good number to know for everybody not just for diabetics.

Thanks for dropping by my blog about how the visits to the chiropractor have helped me. You asked a question about having to go over and over and if it was worth it. I'll have to say, I've been a skeptic my whole life. I'm 61 now, and just started going 2 weeks ago (and only because it was one of those free massage things to get you hooked into coming to the office.) Some of my friends have gone in the past, and said they really felt better. But I was put off by the visits over and over (exactly like your question.) Well I'm going now 3 times a week, for 4 weeks, then down to once a month for maintenance. It still sounds like a lot to me, but each visit is about 10-15 minutes long. He explained it this way---it's like maintenance at your dentist, or eye doctor, etc. Whatever the schedule ends up being, I think I'll keep going since it's been a big help so far. Hope that answers your question. (Oh---another thing. My chiropractor says he tells people right off the bat whether he can help them or not. Sometimes he recommends a medical doctor, or a surgeon. He only takes people that he thinks he can help.) Have a blessed Good Friday, and a Happy Easter! Alleluia!

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!

For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV

There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!
