Just a bit about me: I have many medical issues but have made a decision that I can live or I can give up I have chosen to live. This can be difficult. I am an insulin dependent diabetic with gastroparesis. This is terribly challanging. I also live with lupus and fibromyalgia and minor, details like asthma. I live with surgery on my stomac every 3-4 months but I feel lucky this is available to me, very blessed as a wife and mother grandmother, teacher and church musician, and college student, at the age of 53. I choose to live and do as much and often as possible. I have been able to do, through God to live with the pain and difficulties and I am a most fortunate individual. I also thank the lord for this web site and all my teams and friends here at Sparks! Blessings to all p.s. this is a wonderful and motivational place to spend at least 1-2 hours a day, which gives me motivation to keep going. Hurray!

My Goals:
I would like to lose another 15 -20lbs. I have lost 80+ lbs over the past 3 years, I try to keep myself motivated, as I need to keep it up to live.


My Program:
I currently, take my vitamins, work out at least 6 days per week, I have to watch what I eat as I am a brittle insulin dependant diabetic.[6 shots a day] I need all of your help to keep me going. I have gotten a insulin pump but still have troubles but this is better than before. My doctors want me to get a 24 hours blood glucose monitor but of course the insurance company is the hold up. So maybe someday.

    I asked God for a rose and he gave me a garden.
    I asked God for a drop of water and he gave me a lake.
    I asked God for an angel and he gave me you
    Happy Valentine's Day.

    Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
    If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

    Be thankful when you don't know something,
    for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

    Be thankful for the difficult times.
    During those times you grow.

    Be thankful for your limitations,
    because they give you opportunities for improvement.

    Be thankful for each new challenge,
    because it will build your strength and character.

    Be thankful for your mistakes.
    They will teach you valuable lessons.

    Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
    because it means you've made a difference.

    It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
    A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
    are also thankful for the setbacks.

    Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
    Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
    and they can become your blessings.

    May you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. I will be counting your friendship among my many blessings. Thank you for being my friend.
    Blessings and hugs,
    Helen
