Here we go......

Hi, my name is Sandy....I want to do this for me!! I don't know how or when I let myself get to where I am now? I need and want to get healthy now. I always said there was that one number on the scale that was a breaking point for me...I hit it and went by it. I've tried this before and just didn't have the willpower to follow through.

Hi, my name is Sandy....I want to do this for me!! I don't know how or when I let myself get to where I am now? I need and want to get healthy now. I always said there was that one number on the scale that was a breaking point for me...I hit it and went by it. I've tried this before and just didn't have the willpower to follow through. I need to keep going and remember this is for life. I developed Type 2 diabetes a few years back and did really good for a while, lost weight, exercised....and then I let life get in the way again. I tend to put Sandy on the back burner and everything else first. I am slowly trying to learn to put Sandy first in the health area. I am worth the changes I have to make, and if my family loses weight because of my changes...all the better.

I love advice, so please....comment often.

I love to give support as well as receive.

Personal Information:
I live in a small coastal community in Maine. My hubby is a lobsterman, and I work for a division of our local hospital. I work with some pretty amazing women who support me in all I do.
Thank god for good friends.

I've gained and lost so many pounds over the years. I just don't know when I gave up and got back to the point I find myself at again today. When did I allow myself to get this big? I sometimes look in the mirror and can't believe the woman that stares back at me is actually me. I hope to one day have that feeling but it is a lot smaller me looking back and be in disbelief that I did it. I'm going to try to take it in small doses and set small goals this time around so I can reach them.

One major goal is to get my blood sugar under control, this is a life style change that i have to find again and keep it going.
