I'm happy to find this site and hope to get back to a more comfortable and healthy weight. I'll start out by getting the sleep I need and go from there.* I love the food tracker and other helpful tools available on SP. However, I believe I've made 'beginners' mistakes by expecting a huge change in a very short period of time.

*For one thing I still haven't got my sleep controlled. I've been through just oxygen, then to a Cpap, I'm was using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it seemed to be working okay. Then the insurance bombed me. (Except see my Blogs re: Oxygen & Bi-Pap Machines.) In the meantime, I'm learning to eat the things that are better for me and connecting with the Diabetes teams.

I invite you to read my Blogs. Also check out the links by experts on the Better Sleep Hygiene blog. I also have a Fitbit that helps me keep track of all sorts of things like my sleep which is my main concern right now and a dear necessity.

Hugs and health to all. Having SUPER SP Friends is part of the trick!!

Fitness Minutes: 73,708

My Goals:
One of my goals is to stay healthy long enough to meet other goals. So far, not much luck, but I'm still trying. I'm hoping the Bi-pap and FitBit will help there.

My Program:
Use Nutrition Tracker to keep track of what I eat and what I should eat to control Diabetes 2 and lose weight.

I love my Fitbit, especially the sleep tracker. With it I had proof I wasn't sleeping & could set things in place to help.

Personal Information:
I'm from southern Utah, moved to northern Utah at age 5. I joined SparkPeople in November 2010.

Since I'm a Leo, (August 1st*) ruled by the sun, I changed my background color to yellow. My favorite.

*Added especially for Miss Peaches (Brenda).

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries, humorous, and slightly off kilter books. And LOVE my new KINDLE. (Thank you, Helen & Bob.)

I have had my work published in "Mosaic, a Collection of Short Stories"; and "Tapestry, Poetic Threads of Life." I hope to get so I can have enough energy & creativeness to start writing again.

Goooooood Monday morning! HUGS Hope all is well with you.

Went to visit my parents yesterday. A friend was waked that they'd know (me too) for a very long time, so wanted to be there for them.

(Έ☆΄ (Έ.♥΄΄―`..ΈΈ.☆ Wishing you a splendid weekend filled with healthy choices! ☆. ☆ ... ☆ . ☆ * Barb *

Glad to hear you are still able to walk Charlie. You never know what's next, do you!

Definitely Fall here. The leaves are bare from lots of the trees with the wind and rain we've had over the last 5 days. Not great, but it's Mother Nature's Plan.

So gad it's Friday! May be going to IL on Sunday. A friend of my Father's whom I've known all my life passed away today. As awful as it may sound, he suffered terribly with esophageal cancer. **SIGH** Dad worked with him. He's taking it pretty hard. He was such a wonderful man!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

HUGS
