Hi, I am 52 and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in November, 2011. I have lost 60 lbs. to date and have been able to cut my metformin dosage in half. My blood sugar numbers are close to the normal range because I have been able to control the diabetes with a major change in diet and adding regular exercise back into my lifestyole.

Hi, I am 52 and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in November, 2011. I have lost 60 lbs. to date and have been able to cut my metformin dosage in half. My blood sugar numbers are close to the normal range because I have been able to control the diabetes with a major change in diet and adding regular exercise back into my lifestyole.

In October of 2012 I read "The China Study" and because of what I learned from reading the book I changed my diet to vegetarian and while not quite vegan, I have limited my dairy intake significantly. I am so glad that I have made positive changes to better my health. I feel so much better.

I live in Ithaca, New York. I work full-time at Cornell University. I have been married for 21 years.

I have two daughters, one is a sophomore in college in Buffalo, Ny and the other is a senior in high school. I am trying to rediscover things I like doing now that my kids are older and I don't need to spend all my time taking care of them.

I love SparkPeople and it has helped me tremendously with my challenges.

11/24/12 was my GET QUIT day to stop smoking with Chantix. I am a non-smoker!

Mischiefboi's Quote of Motivation :

Motivation is like a car. emoticon
When it stalls, just let it coast down hill a- ways.
Then pop the clutch, give it a little gas &there it goes
Ready to drive up the next hill. emoticon

Ah, Spring is in the air. Lovely allergies come in from everywhere.
A young lad's dream of cookin' vittles outside..WHOOSH went the fire with flames as tall as the house. Well, you don't really need a set of complete eyebrows, do ya?
Happy Spring!
