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!!!

    No change for me this week, but i know it will happen if I just keep at it. Hope you had a good week.

    We are down at our son's for a visit. I had so much fun with Amelua today. She is talking so much now and knows how to get what she wants. emoticon

    Hi Terri. Hope you are doing well. I can't believe this month is already half over. Time is flying by and I seem to be getting busier with projects and life in general. There are days I log in to Spark people and other days I don't have time. I'm really working hard to lose the pounds. I feel like I am starting to have that under control whether I'm on Sparkpeople or not.
    Have a good night.

    Thanks for the spark goodie, Terri. I have really been trying to watch what I am eating these days. Hopefully it will finally pay off. Keeping really busy working on my family trees. I actually connected with a 5th cousin from my tree and it is great some of the info he shared with me. Working on this is becoming a passion for me.
    Have a great weekend

    Afternoon Terri,
    Still raining over here. Cars are still getting washed, lo.
    yard is a swamp now. I did go out anyway, but sure missing the sunshine.
    You be careful with the new storm that is coming your way. Not really cold here yet.
    Snowing in the mountains.
    Hope your day is going well. emoticon
