Adventures in Living ... Resuming in 2013

Life is one of the greatest adventures given to each one of us ... enjoy every day as much as you can ... learn to choose the things that will make you the best you can be.

My first year with SparkPeople (2008) was a success! I did manage to lose 35 pounds, Now it is 5 years later I've retired, and have decided to restart the program. I'm hoping the extra time on my hands will help me to visit daily, and the support will from teammates will help keep me on track.

Presque Isle State Park, Museums, Theater, Philharmonic, Education (we have 4 Universities). The seasons are phenominal ... each one is special ... It's winter in Erie ... and so far we are well below our average snowfall for the season. however it seems we are trying to make up for it the last 2 weeks!

I am a garden club member and Flower Show Judge ... I love going to shows to see the beautiful designs people create.

I've just retired and I love it!

I appreciate your suggestion about 6-8 small meals on my snack-aholic blog. That's one of the things I love about SP... everyone supports each other and offers helpful advice.

I love your title page "Adventures in Living". I hope you don't mind if I use it too.
