"Once in a blue moon we find a gem!" SO glad I happened upon Sparkpeople!

2019~
This is my third year with Sparkpeople, and it continues to be a stabilizing force in my life.

With age and less activity, my weight has gone up and I know I must get it down to help my joints feel better and to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol. I do fine with tracking and moderation during the daytime, but compulsive eating habits often haunt my evenings.Still working on it!

Since I joined Sparkpeople, I have improved my attitude about diet and exercise, due especially to the wisdom and motivation of the wonderful Spark teams I was lucky to find AND to the Sparky individuals who keep me growing strong.

~Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. (Author unknown.)

For health and happiness, I won't settle; I'm a Rebel!

    Hey you......yes you,
    Stop being unhappy with yourself,
    Stop wishing you looked like someone else
    or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else,
    Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you,
    Stop hating your body, your face, your face, your quirks..
    love them for without those things you wouldn't be you
    and why would you want to be anyone else?
    Be confident with who you are, smile..it'll draw people in.
    If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
    then just say "screw it, my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
    I'm happy because I love who I am. I love my flaws..I love my imperfections..
    they make me "me" and "me" is pretty amazing"

    Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world.
    Constantly color your picture gray, and your life will always be bleak.
    Try adding some bright colors to the picture
    by including humor & your picture begins to lighten up.
