Each day that I make healthy choices I feel that energetic glow that makes life so joyous. And that glow improves with practice. I choose to embrace who I am today. And I take responsibility for the quality of my life by making responsible and healthy choices in all aspects of my life. The by-product of a Healthy lifestyle is a healthy body weight. I'm not exactly sure what number that is for me. If I keep my focus on living my healthiest every day, I am sure that a lot of different numbers will be healthy for me, along the way.

Member Since: 8/14/2007

Lower my A1C!

Make Healthy Choices

Keep a Positive Attitude

Take full responsibility for my quality of life.


My Program:
On August 9th, I went back to my old account on Atkins.com and started following Induction (the first stage with 20 net carbs. Net carbs are total grams carbs - fiber grams.) At my Dr.s appointment 10 days later, I told my Dr. that my blood glucose levels were too low at bedtime (78) and she told me to go off meds (Invokana 100mg) and agreed to let me try and keep my sugar levels low by diet and exercise. I keep accruing information and have since acquired a copy of Dr. Fung's book "The Obesity Code" where he recommends a program of Intermittent fasting to lower insulin levels in the bloodstream. I have been eating a full day of a low carb diet one day and just eating dinner on the alternate day for about a week now. My body seems to be responding well to this and I am losing weight. Even more significant to me is my fasting blood sugars are in non-diabetic ranges. I keep waiting for them to creep up, but so far they have been lower than when I was taking medication. I will continue on



Personal Information:
I am a native New Yorker (upstate) who was transplanted to Texas (Katy)
61 year old mother of five - ages 34, 31, 27, 26 and 22. Four boys and one girl (26 year old). My husband and I have been married for 38 years.


Other Information:
I am smoke-free since 2/15/2007

Newly diagnosed as type 2 diabetic started insulin treatment on 1/28/2016. Now off insulin. Oral medications only 2/15/16 UPDATE 8/21/16 off diabetes meds on low carb diet.

    OH WOW, Nancy Jane!!! I could have written that MYSELF! I think you and I have come to the RIGHT place!! I know I am in here SOMEWHERE and I am about to find me! I have total confidence in Sparks...if you get a chance, read the article "What is normal eating" ....a real eye opener!! I also read one that said "be your own best freind" and talk to yourself like you would talk to a freind that you are trying to encourage and give hope to! COME ONE Nancy Jane, let's DO THIS!!!!
