Ready ...for Spring...for flowers to bloom...for a healthy & happy life!

Hi my name is Risa...I've been on and off here on Sparkpeople since 2007...formally under the name "Sunflowerisa"... for my love of sunflowers and how it inspires me....you know, how it's always reaching up towards the sun.

I had a stroke in February '14 and I'm still recovering. It affected my short-term memory...but it has gotten much, much better.

Recently diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic.... I'm not Diabetic ... but I'm really close! I need to keep an eye on my sugar ...

Recently diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic.... I'm not Diabetic ... but I'm really close! I need to keep an eye on my sugar level and keep it under control by diet and exercise.

I'm starting back slow but steady...my goal is to be living, feeling healthy and good! I'm here back on Sparkpeople for good!

I am now ready for a healthy and happier life - so my new sparkname is "Readyrisa".

2015 is my zodiac year - year of the sheep..which is cool and I am happy about ...Whoo-hoo!

Believing in the Easter Bunny is like saying
you believe in an over sized purple bunny,
pooping colorful eggs all over your lawn.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Good Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Easter Sunday.
Bad Idea: Finding Easter eggs at Thanksgiving.

The Easter Bunny made his list and
checked it not once but twice.
And unfortunately, he found that
you've been naughty not nice.
Now, I knew it was bad news
when his ears started to droop.
But he still left you special
brightly-wrapped bunny poop!!!
