Ok! I'm starting over again. My name is Dee and I've been a member since 2006. I'm a diabetic and I want nothing more than to stop taking medicine.

This is my 3rd trip down SparkPeople and I'm going to make it this time. I am the mother of 7, 2 birth children ages 41 and 39, 4 step-children ages 41, 40, 37, & 27 (the youngest is mine because I raised her), & 1 adopted, almost 10 year old that I've had almost since birth. My husband of 19 years and I are currently separated with appearently no intentions of getting back together.

I am a devout Christain with a a total and complete love for the Lord. He is my friend, savior, God and love of my life. I CAN do all things through Chris.

Member Since: 3/20/2006

Fitness Minutes: 12,102

My Goals:
My first long term goal is to stop dieting and start losing.

My second short term goal is to add exercise to my lifestyle in the terms of 3 to 4 times a week with whole body toning and walking.

My Program:
To eat a Ketogenic diet and lose the rest of the weight I need after my Gastric Bypass. I've lost 60+ pounds and need about 30 to 40 more to go.

Personal Information:
My name is Dee and I'm a dedicated, born again Christian. I'm married, but with lots of children. Actually only 2 of my own and 4 steps although we are separated. All of our children are now grown and I were looking forward to being empty-nester's, but the Lord had different plans, we adopted one of our grandchildren and I will be raising her in my old age. Grandchildren; 4 girls and 2 boy and 1 great grandson.

Other Information:
I'm an avid reader. I personally enjoy murder mystery (without the blood & guts) books like the Cat Who.... books by Lilian Jackson Braun and the Alphabet books by Sue Grafton. And I love 'love' stories.Who can resist a good love story. I enjoy reading anything on how to grow closer to the Lord and I like Joyce Meyers.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
