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 currently using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it ...

*For one thing I still haven't got my sleep controlled. I've been through just oxygen, then to a Cpap, I'm currently using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it seems to be working okay. (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: 64,592

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).

Irene

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.

Goood afternoon there, sweetie! Good luck w/your van. Just had to have mine emissions tested (passed, thankfully) and the license renewed.

It is like the tropics here. No rain in sight till maybe Thursday. Oh well . . . Thursday in the Midwest, that's how it is. Stick around for 5 minutes and the weather will change, right!?!

Glad you're doing well, my dear. And SOOOO glad you have Charlie in your live. There is nothing like canine love! emoticon
