Just a place to write stuff down?

Member Since: 3/10/2013

Fitness Minutes: 955

My Goals:
My goals are to further improve my weight and my blood sugar. I started out with a weight of 425 pounds, and am now down to 305. So I've lost 120 pounds. My blood sugar started out at 360 (when diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in doctor's office) and my A1c is now 4.6. So I've improved quite a bit, but still want to do more.

My Program:
I try to eat low carb, high fat, or LCHF, or HFLC, or nutritional ketosis, or whatever you want to call it. I also do intermittent fasting sometimes, though not every day. As for exercise, I believe strongly in strength training, or lifting weights. As heavy as I can. No one pound pink dumbbells for me, thank you.

Personal Information:
Let's see... pertinent information... um... I'm highly intelligent? I like to learn? I'm a writer? Language is something I find fascinating? I know a good deal of Spanish, and am working on learning Japanese? When I was 21, I had weight loss surgery, and it didn't work (much)?

Other Information:
I guess I'll put hobbies here. I knit, crochet, bake, write (though I suppose this one isn't adequately described by the word 'hobby'), and recently took up Magic the Gathering. Hmm... I can't list off a favorite book, but the top five would be, Dune, Oryx and Crake, The Left Hand of Darkness, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, and The Nightrunner (series). Yes, those are all sci-fi or fantasy. As for movies... god, that's even harder. I'll just say my all-time favorite film is Jurassic Park. Surprises everyone I tell, since it's not 'intellectual'. Oh well. Music? Erasure, Depeche Mode, Adam Lambert, Duran Duran, Placebo, David Bowie, Ke$ha, and Anberlin. And those are just the ones in English. Too many others in other languages to list off.

    Thanks for stopping by. Yes, Mom does take great care of the little ones. I couldn't have done this year without her. Thank God she got over her broken hip and two surgeries...her 90th birthday this year is going to be a great celebreation.
    Our 3 inch rain here was a good start to the warm/hot season. I am hoping that next Tuesday's rain is not as ample as we will be loading lambs. Fortunantly these are youngsters and more easily managed...will spend the week catching them up. emoticon
