Getting on Track

I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health ...

I talk about Spark People to all of them.

Hello There,

Just stopped by to check in on you and wish you an early Valentines's Day.
I see you are still getting in those 8 cups of water. I wish I could do that. I feel lucky if I get in 6 cups. Hope you are all revved up to accomplish great things in 2015!
