About Me:

I am all about family and love spending as much time with them as possible. My 2nd passion is bringing awareness to Type II diabetes. It is near and dear to my heart. Since being diagnosed a little over 3 years ago, I have lost 90 pounds. March 2007 is a special chapter in my life. It was the month my struggle to control my diabetes took on a whole new light. I reached my goal weight set by my doctor and was able to be taken off all artificial means to control my diabetes. My diabetes is now under control through diet and exercise. With weight-loss and exercise, Type II Diabetes can be managed or prevented. My success at controlling my diabetes has led to a new found dedication and passion in educating others on how to eat right & exercise. It brings me great joy to share my story with others and in doing so inspire them to “get up and get moving!”

I'm inspired to live a healthy life because:

I have dropped 100 pounds and no longer have to take medication for type 2 diabetes

Healthy habits that work for me:

  • Eat 6 small meals a day
  • Exercise 5 days a week
  • lower carbs

The accomplishments I'm most proud of:

  • My Husband and Childern
  • Losing 100 pounds
  • Being a public speaker as a diabetes advocate
