Hello Sparkfriends!

Since joining Sparkpeople I have made a complete change in the way I live.

I am now aware of what it takes to stay fit and healthy. I use to eat whatever I wanted and not be concerned about what it might be doing to my health. As a result I had high blood pressure and cholesterol and weighed more than the Dr. said I should.

I have changed the way I eat and exercise and after being on blood pressure medicine for 7 years was taken off of it in 2014.
I have been able to keep it at a normal level through diet and exercise. I have brought my cholesterol down 36 points also. I don't think I would have been able to do it without the help of Sparkpeople. This site is full of so much information to help you be the best you can be.

I am not perfect and sway away from the program from time to time but my Sparkfriends are always there to get me back on track. Sparkfriends are very special to me! Thank you all for the support.

If you are just starting on your journey with Spark hang in there you will gain knowledge and friends that will stay with you through your ups and downs.

    Who made the rule that life has to be so serious?
    One would think that "life is serious" had been engraved
    upon stone tablets to judge from how most lives are lived.
    Get a life, smile broadly, sing loudly,
    paint your rooms in bold colors,
    search every rabbit hole for a magical white bunny,
    have caviar for breakfast and oatmeal for dinner,
    wear a purple coat with a red hat - dance lightly with life.

    A sense of humor... is needed armor.
    Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign
    that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.

    Hallelujah! It's Friday! What a blessing!
    Here are some funny church bulletin postings.

    Mrs. Jones remains in the hospital and needs blood donors for more transfusions.
    She also is having trouble sleeping and requests tapes of Pastor Nelson's sermons.

    The Choir director invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir.

    The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind.
    They may be seen in the church basement on Friday afternoon.

    Our new associate minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign
    slogan last Sunday: I upped my pledge - up yours!

    A new cookbook is being compiled by the ladies of the church.
    Please submit your favorite recipe with a short antidote for it.

    Ladies don't forget the rummage sale. It's a good chance to get rid
    of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands.

    Tip of the day: How do they make holy water? They boil the hell out of it!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Often the greatest happiness comes from going through a life challenge and growing into a stronger person
    “There’s truly nothing more fulfilling and thrilling than discovering yourself to be a stronger person than you ever dreamed yourself capable of being”
    ~Karen Salmansohn~

    emoticon A new word: blesson. emoticon
    “It’s when you’re able to view painful lessons as blessings.
    A blesson is what happens when you see the blessing in the lesson
    that your challenge taught you.
