Greetings from France

Having discovered I was diabetic at the age of 53 and gaining over 3 stone after going onto insulin, I have decided that I will not let my illness control me. Although it is difficult to lose weight when on insulin, the more weight I can lose the less insulin I will need, giving me more control.

Fitness Minutes: 76,788

My Goals:
want to be 150 by 26th July, doing well and sure to reach goal.

My Program:
Besides using the food tracking on SP I also exercise on a daily basis. I am fortunate in having a swimming pool and I do try to swim daily no matter what the weather.

Personal Information:
I am 61 years old and have retired early with my husband to SW France. We have a wonderful life here although I miss my daughter and 2 grandsons back in England.

Other Information:
When I swim I like to listen to music on my waterproof Ipod. I don't know if I will ever grow out of it but I love people like Lady Gaga, Will.i.am, Maroon 5 etc and love dancing like a loony. Hope I never grow out of it.

I like reading and at the moment I am into forensic science type books, like those of Tess Gerritson, Kathy Riechs and Nikki French. Try as I might I cannot get to like Patricia Cornwall even though she is classed a the queen of this genre

I was looking for those books but won't bother now. I like medical examiner type mystery.
I am reading a book about the Tarahumara.
I read Cromwell over vacation and honestly can't even remember which two I tried but I kept having to reread. I keep falling asleep reading in bed and that is slowing down the amount of books I am able to read. Thanks for letting me know about the earlier books. Were they romance? I will read a Norah Roberts once in awhile. I respect her but don't bother with that genre. Nice to chat- good to see someone I can talk to if I find a book to talk about. Karin Sluaghter?! great name emoticon will check that out.

I love Tess Gerritsen. I don't know why Patricai Cromwell is liked. Tess knows her stuff and I cannot put her books down. I also like Jeffrey Deaver too. It has been awhile since I read any fiction. Lately been into non-fiction
