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!!!

    emoticon Thank you for stopping by Terri, sounds like you are all having a fun time. Hope you caught some fish.
    Just a small family cook out for us. Really very quiet, we won't be going to see the fireworks, cuz the smoke always gets me sick. We can see the fireworks for the backyard, so we will do that instead.
    Also need to keep an eye on Riley, he is not afraid of anything, but we don't want to take any chances, so no walking this evening for him.

    Have a fun evening emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Morning Terry,
    Thank you for stopping by. LOL, I know you are always busy and you have a nice large family to enjoy, so wonderful to have them and to be out and about having fun. Life is an adventure and we should enjoy them while we can. Not good to be on the computer all the time. Always happy you check in when you can.
    Very hot here and will be again, I got out for a very early walk and boy am I sweaty!
    Saw some Parrots fly over as I was walking. Glen was ahead with Riley, He was sure interested in them LOL. Hope to get out for a little vacation, not sure yet!
    Keep having fun. emoticon
