Welcome Marcy, hope you can sort it all out and get healthy.
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
When I joined SP, I'd never written a blog, attached a photo, had online friends, or God forbid, publicly posted my weight. Take your time learning your way around. Learn something new often. Ask if you can't figure it out!

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
I'm brand new to Sparks People and am very excited to get involved. I have already receive a lot of support and encouragement from the links. It makes me feel wolcomed but perhaps a bit overwhemed as i am not accustomed to working with computers at all.(l am not allowed to order anything from a computer site because the last time I ended up buying the same exact item three times.) But, hopefully that will get better With time and practice. I am 59 years old. I recently had a 'biventricular pacenaker' put in due to a flabby, inefficient heart. It was 'strong suggested' that I excercise and lose weight to improve stress on my overburdened heart. So here l 'm trying to make some improvemts, I joined a gym and my husband decided that he could benifit from some exercise too. So he is very supportive and attends exercise class es.with me. I am retired after working over 30 yeas as a crital care nurse on the night shift. (That presents it's own set of problems as the hospital cafeteria is closed at night making purchasing healthy meals impossible (thus promoting buying fast food for delivery and frequently snacking while working. Also working unusal hours makes it a bit more difficult to get exercise in...but with creativity and a little effort I got it in.). Now being retired and plaged with severe depression, it is hard to accomplish much more than lying around rhe house all day. I am hopeful thi program can offer some support and direction. It has been great far offering guidence and direction. It's an awsome site I can't believe I just sturpmbled on it. It has so many great features; I spend toń of time just wandering through the site trying to learn about everything that's going on. Looking forward to learning and losing Thank you for your support and encourgagement.
