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!!!

Member Since: 6/12/2011

Fitness Minutes: 115,470

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!!

    Saturday: Well, John and his family have been ill, but he says, not they’re feeling much better. He says they have enough food and medicine, STAY AWAY. Have chicken soup on reserve, but will wait to drop it off until he determines they need it. The Mom part of me wants to drop stuff off, but he is at a point w/being laid off that he has to be in charge of SOMETHING, so I’ll be guided by him.

    Clara is doing all right. Another resident did pass, but it was due to a # of health issues, not corona. She was in her id-90’s. **SIGH** I just feel so badly for her. It is really difficult to lose a patient. I’m glad, though, that she’s talking to me about it.

    Otherwise, decluttering my office. Not too bad. Just have to go thru some papers and shred.

    Rainy, ugly day, so just as well to stay inside!

    Blessings on your Saturday, stay well, stay safe.

    Thursday: And the beat goes on. Clara told us last night a resident passed away. Oh other info, though. She hadn’t taken care of that patient, so that’s good. She’s feeling better. Even better news.

    She called again this morning and she’s doing well, but really tired. Working 12-14 hr. shifts. But she’s able to rest. Feels much better. Wanted to take her some soup, but not allowed to even leave it outside the entrance for her to pick up. I tried. **SIGH** But she assures me she’s all right.

    HUGS and blessings.
