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!!

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.

So very glad that you got out for a walk and to socialize w/others. WE all need that.

I am just pooped, so going to bed and appreciating the weekend yet to come!

HUGS and love to you too.

Goooooood Friday morning. Were you a good girl yesterday!? We brought so much food to my folks. Left several meals for them and have some for us. So good and I behaved . . . didn't eat. Didn't even have any dessert! I was so full from the cooking -- weird -- when I cook a large meal, I just feel full afterwards!

And hope you're feeling decent today!

HUGS and hope you have a good day. Not going out in the Black Friday crowds. UGH

My sweet, just take care of you . . . that's most important. No matter the cause.

And crazy??? Nah! Normal is overrated, right! emoticon

I am doing all right. Just got in from IL visiting the parents for Thanksgiving. It was really nice. Mom really is slipping w/the memory, but seems happy none-the-less. That's her. Always positive attitude.

HUGS my dear. Have tons of food to put away. Left a lot of food w/Mom and Dad, too, but with a 20 lb. turkey . . . YIKES! Lots of leftovers.

HUGS and love
