I am Living Healthier with Spark People. It is spring 2018. The characteristic buzz of the whirling wings of selasphorus hummingbirds is in the air.

After initially being introduced to Spark People in 2010, I left in quick order. I returned in late December 2013 and have undergone an amazing transformation. I feel so much better. I love the feeling of being “at home” in my body again!

I have maintained below an initial goal weight of 144 lbs. since June 2014. More specifically, I have experienced a very slow, downward trend since entering maintenance nearly 4 years ago. I do believe that my body has taken me to the low region of its healthy weight range.

I find myself atypically thin in a country that finds nearly one third of its population overweight, over one third of its population obese, and nearly eight percent of its population extremely obese meaning that a whopping 70%+ find themselves overweight or obese in the United States. I was a part of that statistic for about 20 years. No more ...

It has taken consistent effort and focused attention to improve my health and well-being. The journey has not been easy; but, has been well worth the effort and continues to unfold. This community has been far more than an information source. Resources, support, encouragement and inspiration abound here.

So, give a look at what’s on offer here at Spark People. Get engaged and stick around.

    Thank you so much for reading my blog. It was a great reward for keeping up fitness. I’m learning how important sleep is.

    Have a good weekend!

    Harboring resentment sucks the life right out of you, it is time to release this and get on with your life. Resentment and anger are like a cancer that eats you alive. It takes the joy out of living. Marla Cilley (aka FlyLady)

    Hey there. Thanks for stopping by and leaving some bloglove on my recent post. We're all really looking forward to the fun of another grandchild. Just about a month away.

    While I enjoyed flying by the seat of my pants, I'm ready for some structure now. I still haven't actually written down my lists of Important Things I Need To Do . but I am actually working on some of those things I need to do.

    DH is at least being pretty cheerful during this tough period. He's in touch with the docs and experimenting with options but there's an actual visit in early June.
