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.



Personal Information:
I live in Michigan, on a farm. I have 3 horses, my dog passed away over 1 year ago, a Newfoundland. He was 15. Ive been married to the same wonderful man for 33 years, we have 2 children and 2 grandchildren. We are expecting 2 more grandchildren in Feb 08 and March 08


Other Information:
I am a very caring compationate person,I am a very right brained individual, with many interests, I am a musician, teacher, college student. Wife, mother and grandmother. It seems like I do every craft, there is , I like to "do my own thing" I rarely use patterns, if I do I put my own signature of some sort on it.

    Go to your home page, at the upper right, click on "E Mail Preferences"
    At the bottom of the preferences page, click on "Add Edit My Message Board Profile" - then insert your profile information. When it asks for a picture, you should be able to grab it from you gallery? If not, get back to me and I will help you from there. But first you have to set up your profile.
    Good luck,
    Dennis
