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.

    That is so funny!! This student is my only science major - engineering.

    I think it was a very good experience because I get lulled into thinking the students don't have opinions about things if they never express them Of course they do! It gets too easy and comfortable for the teacher.

    I'm sorry you're expecting such high temperatures. I do hope you can stay in the cool and avoid a bad reaction. I don't know very much about hypothyroid. It sounds like both a trial and an intriguing mystery.

    Take care, Jeanne.

    Hello my dear! Thanks so much for your comments on my blog emoticon I will have to add to your list: NO hair color! It's weird because I look young, even though at my age, I could have grey hair. It's like this patch at the side part of my head. Thanks for wishing me well. You're an inspiration with your healthy lifestyle, I might add emoticon Keep on going Strong emoticon Have a good weekend!
