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

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!

    The world is a dangerous place
    not only because of those who do evil
    but also because of
    those who look on and do nothing.

    Let's all work hard together to bring Unity, Peace, Equality,
    Safety, Love, Happiness, and Freedom to our Nation.

    A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.

    Hugs are fat free, sugar free, and requires no batteries, helps the immune system,
    reduces depression, blood pressure, and induces sleep.
    It's invigorating, rejuvenating, and has no unpleasant side effects.
    It's nothing less than a miracle drug. Hugging is also all natural.
    It's organic, naturally sweet, has no artificial ingredients, environmentally safe,
    and 100% wholesome. Hugging is the ideal gift. Great for any occasion,
    fun to give and receive, shows that you care, comes with it's own wrapping paper,
    and of course, it's fully returnable
    emoticon I wish it were possible to reach thru the computer & give you a HUG emoticon
    emoticon emoticon Give someone a HUG today...I bet they'll hug you back emoticon emoticon
