Thank you for visiting my SparkPage! I Love being supportive and encouraging on SP. You can call me Bobbie.

**My Inspiration is Ernestine Shepherd, and she says, "Age is Nothing But A Number and You CAN GET FIT"

My PLAN: is to stick with my Keto lifestyle forever and IF (Intermittent Fasting) and Dance to my Heart's content. I want to be as healthy looking as Ernestine Shepherd when I'm in my eighties and nineties!

I'm getting healthy first. I have 17.0 pounds to go, to reach my goal weight of 145 pounds.

ANNIESADVENTURE Thank You.
*******************

When I was a kid I was called "Toothpick" and it hurt my feelings.
I think I was skinny from way too much stress then.
Before my 1st child was born I weighed 110 lbs at 5 ft. 5 1/2 inches. After my 3rd child was born I settled at about 125 lbs.
I had a total hysterectomy when I was 28 but, not much change in weight. I didn't get up to 140 until I was about age 39.
Then when I was 46 I had stage 4 breast cancer and after chemo and radiation I got up into the 190s.
I am a medium frame and at 51, I lost 50 lbs on Atkins in about 6 months. I gained it all back when I put all my focus on my daughter while I was caring for her after her stroke in 1997. She is doing fine now. But, it took me years of trying to get back on track until
I started watching Dr. Eric Berg's videos explaining that the only thing the Atkins diet was missing was the veggies to protect the liver among other things. Also how good Interment Fasting is for the body.

Now, in my golden years, I just want to stay healthy. I have been learning a lot from Dr. Berg and doing Ketosis and Intermittent Fasting lifestyle since Sat.,10/26/19. I stopped using All SUGAR including foods that turn to sugar in my body, like all bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, and anything with white or wheat flour in it, etc. https://www.drberg.com/
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Saturday ~10/26/19 ~ I made a commitment to myself: No More Sugar!
(1) So far, my morning readings of Blood Sugar have dropped from 250s to 100s.
(2) I'm sleeping so much better too.
(3) My mood is so much better.
(4) I'm not hungry all the time anymore.
(5) My belly Is NOT bloated anymore.
(8) I have lots more energy.
(5) I'm getting out of chairs easier and walking faster.
(6) My left knee has stopped hurting.
(7) I have stopped losing weight for now. (But, I'm not worried, that will happen as a side effect as I get healthy).
(8) Update: I have lost 48 pounds as of 11/8/20, it happened very slowly.

Once I made up my mind to do Keto I went to my kitchen and threw away my bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, and anything that was high in carbs (I could do this because it's just my husband and me). Don't worry I kept the things he really likes and he's fine with it. Then I made my list of allowed meats, veggies, and condiments, and off to the grocery store I went.
You Can Do ANYTHING You Make Up Your Mind To Do.!!!

I think the best Medicine is Resting, Dancing, and Fasting. Intermittent fasting simply allows the body to use its stored energy, by burning off excess body fat. Resting, and Dancing are great for the body and soul.

*******A MESSAGE from MY DOCTOR******
RE: Lab results
General Mailbox
05/29/2020
Hello Ms. Bobbie Walker,

I have published your lab results on your portal.

I want to congratulate you on the enormous success demonstrated by these labs. You are no longer showing any evidence of diabetes, elevated liver enzymes, or elevated triglycerides.

Your electrolytes, kidney function, and blood count also looked great. Your thyroid is in control.

Your cholesterol is still elevated however the majority of this is usually due to genetics. Please keep up your success and do not revert back to the diet that caused all the problems we identified earlier.

Please review the labs and let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Dr. Tarpley
