"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
Since joining SparkPeople, I have become slimmer and healthier -- in spite of major surgery in January 2010. I am able to do much more than before and feel better.
I am the mother of 6 gifts from God, 3 boys -- Jason, Richard and Bryan --and 3 girls -- Kristen, Catherine, and Jessica. One of my sons is presently in the military (Air Force), one got out of the Navy and went to graduate school and got his Master's degree in biology and is now here in WA state deconstructing a ship, and the third has finished his college course work to become a psychologist. He is now an officer in the Army. My oldest daughter is a paralegal, my second daughter is an R.N., and the youngest is employed by the DOL.
I have eight grandchildren, a girl Paige and a boy Isaac, an adorable boy named Keith Bryan, a grandson named Dylan, a grandson named Trent, a girl Isabella Noelle, then Brady, and an infant named Eric.
I also am the crazy cat and dog lady. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs.
God is my rock and my strength.
To maintain my weight now and keep on with my exercise to maintain my abilities or even improve them.
Staying with the SP guidelines for Diabetes Type 2 for my build, and exercise daily. I concentrate on getting enough protein to keep my blood sugar stable and complex carbs with fiber to slow the digestion of the carbs and also keep the blood sugar pretty stable.
I was originally born in El Paso, TX, have lived in Houston, TX, (muggy), New Mexico briefly, around Newport, RI, and now in Western WA state where most of the time it is cool and rainy (yay!!!).
I love Jesus. My favorite song is "Jesus Loves Me."
