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!!!

    Afternoon Terri,
    Computer is still bad, but I am trying, sometimes it just shuts off for no reason. I lost all my alerts, so it is taking me more time to get through.
    Glad you joined curves, nice to meet people and interact with them. I have been helping in the garden at the apple orchard where I love to hike. Love doing that and the people are so nice, we even went on a few hikes together. I usually like going alone, but have been shown some new trails.

    Happy birthday to Baylie emoticon and Sun emoticon , Great names :) Nice to have those happy occasions. I gave them each a cake and a wish.
    Have you have a wonderful weekend too. Pretty soon Fall color by your lake. emoticon

    Hi Terri
    Have a great day. So glad you are back. I just made oatmeal last week, so it will be time to make a new batch again soon. Did I tell you I switched up the fruit using apple and craisins. It was good, but a little to sweet for me. My daughter Gina used peaches and raspberries which was good.
    Rain has finally stopped , humid easing up and sun coming out, so I'm going to enjoy this wonderful day

    emoticon Terri,
    Thank you for stopping by.
    I am glad that you are finally getting some needed rest.
    You really deserve it. emoticon
    I am still having some silly computer issues, but I am doing ok.
    Had some beautiful hikes and it is really cooling off here, almost cold today.
    Glen and Riley are still tired, so I don't know if we will be doing any hiking today.
    We will be having a family BBQ later. I have my veggies ready. emoticon
    Happy Labor day emoticon emoticon emoticon
