Capital letters are actually more difficult to read than lower case with a higher zoom. People with visual impairments can increase the zoom on their monitor which makes it much easier to read. But 99.99% of the people on this site are not in that category and all upper case is harder, not easier, to read. Not to mention comes across as aggressive. If you didn't know that, it should answer your question that you posted earlier.

NO ( SORRY FOR THAT ) is because there are some people who cannot not see the small letters. I try to motivate some of you because have to take care fof your bodies for it is the only one you are going to have during your lifetime. Motivation is so important. I ws put on probotic diet by my Dr.because of my trygleceride level.a and when I went to Dr. yesterday it droppe from 200 to 122. 2 heart attacks are enough for me. First one 48 yrs. old 2nd 68 yrs. old. That is a wake-up call.I wish you the best towars your goal and "you can do this" emoticon .

I've read many of your posts but don't respond because the capital letters put me off. It feels like you're yelling at me. :(

Hello GrandMaFranny,

It is great to hear that you are getting your 8 hours and do agree with your Doctor that we do have different cycles and rhythms. I have had circumstances (night watch on ocean sailing journeys for example) when my sleep time came at unconventional times. Congratulations on your clean bill of health!
BTW...it is really nice to see you banishing the all capital posts. They are much easier to read. Online protocol also considers writing in all capitals to be the equivalent of YELLING. emoticon
I envision good unfolding in every area of your life and wish you a happy day! emoticon

P.S. Maybe you are motivating more people than you think....not everyone responds to how they are affected by input from others.

Rebecca !!! Just came back from Dr.'s appt. and I told him about what you said about my sleeoing patter. Told him I get up about 12:45 am and exercise then walk and wind down and I go to sleep at 8 am and wake up at 1pm. He said that some people are like that but I am still getting 8 hrs. sleep. My chloesteral dropped 78 pts. , BP 148-73, Heart rate 69. He said I was s fit as a 45 yr. old I also told him about SPARKPEOPLE and he said he would refer his patients to your website. HAVE A NICE DAY !!!
