I've used Spark People before with great success and now Im back again. Im not here to lose weight this time - though it would be nice. Rather, Ive been diagnosed as hypoglycemic and need to make major changes in my diet. Currently, I'm unable to do much physically so I'll be reaching out for ideas as to what I can try. My wife is extremely supportive. My 7 fur babies help reduce my stress. I know I can succeed as long as I accept support and guidance. I have a lot to live for - and I want to live!

Member Since: 3/2/2014

Fitness Minutes: 1,850

My Goals:
I would like to lose 50 lbs by the end of the summer. I am working on being more confident in myself and my abilities.

My Program:
My key things to accomplish are to eat more nutritious food and smaller portions. I aslo would like to develop a consistent exercise routine that includes aerobic as well as strength training. My last part of my program is to get out in nature and enjoy nature once again.

Personal Information:
Hi, my name is Karin and I am 46 years young. I live in PA with my partner and 4 cats. I was a social worker for 25 years before going out on disability 5 years ago. I am now working part time as a Rehabilitation Specialist. I also started and produce a performing arts group whose mission is to combat stigma related to mental illness and addictions. I love the outdoors and can't wait till I can enjoy them more. I have some limitations due to 3 total knee replacements and chronic pain but I have learned to live with the pain very well.

    Thanks for the friend add! Back at ya!

    .´*.¸.•´♥ Welcome to Spark People! Welcome to Spark Blogging!

    One thing I would suggest is: Keep collecting Spark Friends like candy!! It is calorie free and they always give you something to "chew on"!!

    You can just "friend" need to ask. We are friendly and don't bite!

    You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and practice your"Power Pose" in the background, (but don't leave and don't do any damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

    If you want to know what Power Posing is, see my blog called, "We Pause for a Little Inspiration" or "I Double Dog Dare You"

    You can do this!!
