Hello Sparkfriends!

Since joining Sparkpeople a couple of years ago I have made a complete change in the way I live.

I am now aware of what it takes to stay fit and healthy. I use to eat whatever I wanted and not be concerned about what it might be doing to my health. As a result I had high blood pressure and cholesterol and weighed more than the Dr. said I should.

I have changed the way I eat and exercise and after being on blood pressure medicine for 7 years was taken off of it last year!
I have been able to keep it at a normal level trough diet and exercise. I have brought my cholesterol down 36 points this year also. I don't think I would have been able to do it without the help of Sparkpeople. This site is full of so much information to help you be the best you can be.

I am not perfect and sway away from the program from time to time but my Sparkfriends are always there to get me back on track. Sparkfriends are very special to me! Thank you all for the support.

If you are just starting on your journey with Spark hang in there you will gain knowledge and friends that will stay with you through your ups and downs.

May 2016 bring great things your way!!!

    Thanks for commenting on Amelia's latest picture. She is 18 months old now, a week away from 19 months. She looks like a little girl now. emoticon

    Have fun at the Toyota plant tour. Sounds fun. I remember when we were young we toured Western Electric where my dad worked and we also toured Pepperidge Farms where you actually got loaves of bread to take home. Yummy!
    We have something in common. I am also not a fan of hotdogs. If I eat one I also have to have it burnt from over the fire or under the broiler and even then one is more than enough!
    Have a good weekend.

    I know several women who have had great success with Curves. Hope you keep enjoying it.

    It is so much fun seeing Amelia's progress. She understands so much now and has a big vocabulary for her age. She is also strong. She will walk over half a mile, exploring as she goes so it's really more distance, and doesn't complain at all. She is a big climber, too.

    We hope to travel with her when she is older, as long as we can keep up with her. We are glad to be home for now and aren't planning any big trips for a couple of years. We are going back to our son's house for Thanksgiving and will do a couple of short trips next year.

    We just got home from our trip yesterday and are really tired! I am resting up today, doing laundry, getting caught up around the house, etc. I plan to start back to the gym tomorrow. We had a great time, ending with 3 days visiting Amelia. She is 18 months old now and lots of fun.

    How are you doing?
