I am a 59 year RN married to best friend these past 40 years. We have 3 fabulous grown children and I want to keep staying healthy to someday see grandchildren. I have been diagnosed with DM for a little over a year and am now off all meds, controlling it with diet, exercise and weight loss and determined to stay that way. I credit SparkPeople and all the wonderful people and friends on this site who have shared their knowledge, advice and support. It will always be a journey but oh, what fabulous people I have met along the way!!! Chaucer, move over!!!

My Goals:
I have pretty much reached my goals of losing weight (90 pounds) and getting off my DM meds so now I have to keep working hard to stay that way. Feeling as good as I do, I now wonder why I didn't do this years ago. But then I wouldn't have met all the wonderful people here on SP.

My Program:
I try to be consistent with my diet and exercise to maintain my weight and keep my BSs under a tight control.

Personal Information:
I live outside Philadelphia PA near the Delaware state line (tax free shopping!) I work as a legal nurse consultant and in my spare time I like to read, crochet, walk and love spending time with my husband, children and friends. I have three grown children, Ashley 28 married and a dentist, Hayley 24 in grad school for an MFA and Alex 21 who lives with hubby and me and works is an autobody repairer. We have two rescue dogs, Indy and Menlo.

Other Information:
My favorite poem is "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. My philosophy of life is the Golden Rule (Treat others as you would wish to be treated) and I try everyday to live by it. I love life and am very happy!!

    Saturday: Nice Zoom Breakfast. Did eggs in the hole this morning. So good and simple! Our friends were a little more rested today (the paramed and EMT) Things are still grim @ the hospitals, though.

    Sunny but cold. I’ll take it w/o precipitation!

    HUGS and enjoy Saturday.

    Friday: Thanksgiving dinner turned out deliciously. Jason and I enjoyed it. Will put packages together for John and Clara for the weekend.

    The weather was decent. It was dark and dreary in the morning, but the sun came out.

    So, it will be leftovers tonight. Just heat up and no cooking. Hurray!

    Jason’s thyroid procedure is now scheduled. 16 April. But we have to be up there on the 14th for Covid testing. Then pre-op stuff on the 15th. BUT the good news is, it will be outpatient. I am just ready for ALL this to be over! At least the spring is pretty there.

    Wednesday: Rainy and ugly yesterday. A little snow mixed in w/the rain, but no accumulation here.

    Another rainy day, but Thanksgiving is supposed to be near 50. I’ll take it.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!
