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!!

    Monday: Rained overnight, but we were lucky, no severe storms for us. That was north of us. We were lucky.

    Well, Monday, here it is again. Let’s make it the best Monday we can.

    Hugs and blessings

    Saturday: Supposed to be a stormy weekend, so we’ll see!

    Take out breakfast today. But we’ll zoom later. They are first responders, and their schedules are chaotic @ best.

    Otherwise, getting more ready to pack for Wednesday.

    HUGS and have a great Saturday!

    Friday: John’s car was officially totaled by the insurance company. Now it’s getting a new car. OY.

    Heating up and a little more humidity, which is going to be irritating this weekend. Enjoyed the last few days!

    It’s FriYaY!

    Thursday; Making a crock pot pot roast today, enough for a couple of days. Yum.

    Got the floors done yesterday after I got home from our appointments. Felt good to get that done.

    The hair cut makes is so much easier to just get up and get going in the morning.

    Happy Friday Jr. HUGS
