I think that this is a good title for my continued weight loss journey. I lost 30 lbs. over the course of 1 year and have gone up and down over the past 24 months. I lost some inches, and I found them back in other places. Exercise has helped. Exercise is just one piece of the puzzle. Sleep is an important piece of the puzzle, as is what I eat from day to day. My blood pressure goal was 135/85; today it is 131/82(and it has been lower) I still am working to loose the weight, but being ...

My blood pressure goal was 135/85; today it is 131/82(and it has been lower) I still am working to loose the weight, but being healthier in all aspects is just as important.
The SparkTeams are a great way to gain support, and I absolutely love the MysteryReaders team. It is an active group and these ladies really keep you on your toes.
The ultimate goal is to keep the focus on healthy living.

Sometimes I forget to thank
the people who make my life
So happy in so many ways.

Sometimes I forget to tell
them how much I really do
appreciate them for being an
important part of my life.

Today is just another day
Nothing special is going on

So thank you, my friend
just for being here for ME!!

When I look at the flag, I see more
than stars and stripes, red, white and blue.
I see the red and white stripes
as the unity of this country from end to end,
fighting for our freedom.
I see sacrifices, and struggles, and fear.
I also see strength, determination, and courage.
The blue is the sky of patriotism
that spreads over our nation.
As for the stars, they are the men and women
who make it possible to fly our flag
with dignity and honor.
