Here's to a healthier, happier 2016!

I've made many improvements since January 1, 2010, when I first joined SparkPeople, but I'm still working to be a better me. This program helps me to focus more on my health, and I have made many great SparkFriends whose strength, motivation, and encouragement have helped me along this life journey.

Thank you, SparkPeople!
