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.

    One step at a time is enough for me. Impatience is simply a way
    of beating yourself up.

    The more you give, the more you get.
    The more you laugh, the less you fret.
    The more you do unselfishly,
    the more of everything you share,
    the more you'll always have to spare,
    the more you love, the more you'll find
    that life is good and friends are kind,
    For only what we give away
    enriches us from day to day.

    The Oak Tree
    A mighty wind blew night and day.
    It stole the Oak Tree’s leaves away.
    Then snapped its boughs
    and pulled its bark
    until the Oak was tired and stark.
    But still the Oak Tree held its ground
    while other trees fell all around.
    The weary wind gave up and spoke,
    How can you still be standing Oak?”
    The Oak Tree said, I know that you
    can break each branch of mine in two,
    carry every leaf away,
    shake my limbs and make me sway.
    But I have roots stretched in the earth,
    growing stronger since my birth.
    You’ll never touch them, for you see
    they are the deepest part of me.
    Until today, I wasn’t sure
    of just how much I could endure.
    But now I’ve found with thanks to you,
    I’m stronger than I ever knew.

    “In this life we are all just walking up the mountain
    and we can sing as we climb or we can complain about our sore feet.
    Whichever we choose, we still gotta do the hike.
    I decided a long time ago singing made a lot more sense.”
