Since starting with SP in July 2012, I've brought my blood sugar and blood pressure down dramatically, with both numbers being in the healthy range now. I am exercising 6 times a week, for 45-90 minutes at a time. I am eating well for the most part, but really need to get better control of night snacking. I am finally sleeping well. I am feeling better and more hopeful than I have in a long time.

Hi Susan,

What a day we had yesterday. I worked yesterday then had 24 people here for Easter dinner and at 10:30 PM my daughter called and said she was going to the hospital because she was having contractions. The hospital is 35 mins. away. She got there and 1 hour and 35 mins. later she had the baby. The Dr. showed up 2 mins. after the nurses delivered her. They didn't have time to give her an epidural or anything for the pain. All went well but it was very painful for her. Brinna Nicole is 5 lbs. and 12 oz. She is a beautiful little baby.

I have had company today and now I am ready to rest!

I'm glad we had our Easter get together yesterday! I don't know how much more excitement I can take this weekend.

Have a great evening!

Hard work is a two - way street. You get back EXACTLY what you put in.

Susan,

emoticon Thank you.

That's what I need for now!

I'm boiling 7 doz. eggs right now for all the kids to dye tomorrow evening. I hate the smell of eggs when they are boiling so I hope my house is aired out by tomorrow.

We are having an Easter egg hunt and dinner here tomorrow evening.

Easter kind of slipped up on me this year.

Well I better get back to my eggs... emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blog and for your comments. I've thought all along that finding a doctor that was willing to really listen to me would be the key but wasn't able to find one in the little town we lived in before moving. Today is day 1 of change (again). I've had a lot of "day 1's" but hopefully this will be the start of a more successful journey.
