First day of summer....

Monday, June 21, 2010

I'm sitting here at the computer typing this and thinking to myself, "Today is the first day of summer!" It means it's the longest day, offical start for some folks for their vacation time, and other's like myself, it means to make the most of it after all the chores and work are done.

I plan on making the most of it with my daughter and our neighbor girl today by running around in the backyard, gardening, biking, or in line skating. The possibilities are endless. All I know is that God granted me better health than one year ago and I plan on using my new found energy and burn it off in a positive way.

Last year at this time, I found myself in situation that literally woke me up and realize that I needed help and I better do something about it quickly. I went to my doctor and found that my LDL cholesterol was over 200 nearing 300, my HDL was below 30 and my tryg's were well over 400. I'm glad that I have a neighbor who introduced me to Spark People and has been a mentor for me in the beginning, now I plan on continue this journey to see what lies ahead of me.

Like I mentioned in the beginning, today is the first day of summer and the possibilities are endless to what I will do today! Here's to great health and exercise, but most of all here's to God saying in his gentle voice, "I know you can do it, just try and you'll succeed." Thank you Jesus and thanks to all of my spark friends. I know we all can do it together. Well, I did succeed after one year ago, my LDL is below 200, my HDL is over 60, and my tryg's are below 200. I have lost almost 30 pounds and counting!
