Hi, welcome to my sparks page. It is like me, a work in progress. I am 69, a widow, a grandmother and great grandmother. I have been retired since 2003 and enjoy every minute of it. I now wonder how I had time to go to work! I love animals, crafting, sewing, travelling, swimming, and visiting friends and family.

I live on Vancouver Island. We enjoy the most moderate climate in all of Canada.

My Goals:
My goals are to attain a healthy and active lifestyle that will enable me to feel good about myself, control my blood sugars and to just plain feel well again.

My Program:
I started in March of this year with going to water therapy. I had been sick all winter and didn't know what was going on but I knew if I didn't get this carcuss moving I would not be here to enjoy my grandchildren for much longer. I also decided to go to my family doctor and find out what on earth was going on. It turned out everything was normal except for my glucose levels were elevated. I was so thankful that I had already started an exercise plan and was going to plan on implementing a healthier eating pattern. I still have not been diagnosed with diabetes, yet, but I know it's coming down the pipe. So along with my three times a week water therapy and now calorie counting I will be successful in feeling better.

Personal Information:
I am from Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island. I am 69, a widow, grandmother and great grandmother. I retired as in 2003 and enjoy every minute of it. Now where did I find the time to go to work?

Other Information:
I like to craft, sew, swim, camp, travel, visit with family and friends, horses and cats, heck I like all animals!

    Hi. How are things going? I haven't spent as much time on SP the last couple days, but wanted to touch base. I'm doing well, tracking food and using the tools, but haven't been able to spend the time with friends and posting. Thing will ease up after tomorrow for a while.

    Just stopping in to say Hi and see how you are doing. I've had an awesome week, but haven't been on SP as much this week. Trying to go to bed on time instead. Where I should be now. LOL.

    Hi, I was just reading March Readers Digest and there is an article in there about an experiment in Alert Bay. The doctor set up a program to help conquer diabetes with a low-carb diet and it worked. Many in the town took part. If you have that issue or can get it at the library, give it a read. Very interesting. Maybe you could even go to the health center there and get some first hand information? Anyway, thought of you when I read it. I'm going to try it myself. emoticon To bad I don't live on Vancouver Island.
