"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!

    emoticon emoticon FOR MOTHER'S DAY~~JUST A MOM emoticon emoticon

    She cant stand it when people say, "You're JUST a mom?"
    Yes, she is JUST A MOM!!
    That makes her an alarm clock, cook, maid, waitress,
    teacher, nurse, referee, handyman, security officer,
    photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner,
    hairdresser, personal assistant, & an ATM machine.
    She scares away the boogieman. She doesn't get paid holidays,
    sick pay or days off. She works DAY & NIGHT.
    She's on call 24/7 for the rest of her life.
    She's 'JUST A MOM'!!!
    She is a Mom to someone or to many and she would
    do ANYTHING on this planet for them!
    She's..... 'JUST A MOM"!!.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the MOTHER'S,
    the Mother's you have, and all the Mother's you know! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon KIND emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots,
    Kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits,
    Take care of your garden, and keep out the weeds,
    Fill it with sunshine, kind hearts, kind thoughts, kind words, and kind deeds,
    ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

    NEVER....
    Speak without listening.
    Give up before you're ready.
    Settle for less than you deserve.
    Dim your sparkle.
    Complicate what you can simplify.
    Make promises you can't keep.
    Believe it's too late to begin.
