Hi Everyone

My name is Purrrpy, I was born in Canada and live in Toronto, Ontario. I am 56 years old woman, surrounded with wonderful people and supports. I have been on Sparkpeople since February 2011 and I am slowly developing a healthier relationship with food. I have slowing been losing weight over the last several months and now view this as lifestyle change not a DIE-T.

After 8 months on Sparkpeople my blood pressure is normal again and I have lost 40 lbs. What an amazing feeling. I am even starting to like exercising and exercising is becoming more consistent.

I try to live each day to the fullest and with a positive attitude. I believe life is not what is dealt to you but more on how you choose to cope with it. I consider myself a positive person and I am enjoying getting to know all the new friends I have met on Sparkspeople.

Live each day to the fullest - enjoy each moment and cherish the memories. Know that no matter what the issue or challenge is this too shall pass. Maybe not the way we want it - BUT it will pass.

Wake up each day - with new hope, look forward to new opportunites and possiblities and you will never be disappointed. Remember successes is not necessarily measured by the weight you lose - but more by the healthier habits and patterns that we develop that will last a lifetime!!

Thank-you everyone that continues to be a part of this wonderful journey and I look forward to meeting so many others. TOGETHER we CAN !!!!!!!!

    THANK YOU for stopping by. GLAD to see you!
    I have been all over the place this year. I had some low points but the highest is not giving up on myself.
    Still...lots of challenges within (injury) and around me (2 daughters engaged, 1 graduating HS, father laid off...planning retirement...and on and on.
    I promised myself to invest in my own good health in 2010...and no matter what I keep that promise. Isn't always pretty or stellar or gold metal worthy...but I just keep going.
    That has turned into my definition of success.
    Glad to see you have the same spirit. Spark on Spark friend.
