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 stopping by my page. emoticon It's quiet here at the moment, but my son and Amelia are coming for a visit in 3 weeks. We can't wait to take her to Lake Tahoe for a day. We used to take our son just about every summer weekend when he was young, and always had the best time. We are expecting her to love it.

    Have fun with your sister!

    Hi Terry,
    Answer here, my computer is acting up.
    Glad you are having a fun summer. Glad you got the pool fixed, we could sure use one here, been so hot. You trip sound like it will be fun, you do deserve a break. Have a great time Terry.
    Hope everyone is well from all the mishaps.
    Hate to say it, but we will not be building a home after all. Long story, but we are selling the lot. I am not upset, really was a blessing.
    Thank you for checking in I always think of you. emoticon

    Hi Terri,
    Goodness, so much happening all at once!
    So sorry for poor Lily, hope she is not in too much pain. And poor Samantha. Different towns too, sounds like you will be busy. You know I will send lots of prayers. I hope you relax and remember to breath, kinda stressful for sure. I am doing fine, very quiet over this way.

    Keep us posted as to how everything turns of for the children. emoticon emoticon
