My Goals:
Although I really want to see the numbers on the scale go down, my main concerns are healthy eating AND short, just achieving a healthier lifestyle.

My Program:
I intend to pay special attention to portion control and increasing my servings of vegetables. I am going to exercise at least 30 minutes a day.

Personal Information:
I grew up on a farm about 50 miles from Houston and now live out in the country in west central Texas. I'm an empty-nester and share my space with numerous cats and dogs (love all animals). I also love gardening and decorating my home. God has blessed me with wonderful family and friends. Life is good!

Hi Melinda! I just read your spark mail to me and I thank you very much for your kind words. I would love if you added me to your friends list, you can never have too many friends, especially when it comes to walking on this journey to better health. It's always good to know you've got friends walking the same path.

It's very nice to meet you!

Thanks for the sparkgoodie. I needed that yesterday because it was probably the worst day I've had since I started visiting SP everyday again. Oh well back in the saddle to day. Hope your week is a blessed one. Keep up the good work.
