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.

    Happy Friday! It's the beginning of a long holiday weekend, and one we as Americans love to celebrate - Independence Day. It is sad that this term is now used infrequently. Why not remind others what the celebration is all about? People have forgotten what 4th of July really is about. It's not just another day for cookouts, fun, and fireworks. Our July 4th commemorates what our ancestors fought for, and the freedom(s) that we have, and use everyday. It's not fireworks and parties. That's just what makes it fun. Wish all your friends and family "A Happy Independence Day", and help them remember, too!

    I'm hoping I can fire up your enthusiasm for some holiday fun with these hot jokes. I hope you'll get a real bang out of them!

    emoticon What kind of tea did the American colonists want?
    Liberty!

    emoticon Did you hear the joke about the Liberty Bell?
    It cracked me up!

    emoticon A battery and a firework were arrested.
    They charged one, and let the other one off.

    emoticon Which colonists told the most jokes?
    Punsylvanians!

    emoticon What's red, white, and blue and likes to wave?
    The American flag.

    This one will crack you up. . .
    emoticon How come there are no knock knock jokes about America?
    Because freedom rings!

    emoticon Why did the colonial doctor give America a clean bill of health?
    It had a good, strong constitution.

    emoticon What did the little firecracker say to the big firework?
    Hi Pop!

    emoticon What would you get if you crossed a patriot with a very classy, curly-haired dog?
    A Yankee Poodle Dandy.

    I hope you didn't find any of these jokes to be flame-outs or real duds!
    Enjoy your weekend and keep freedom ringing! emoticon

    Start today, start now!
    Even if it is small.
    drink a glass of water.
    Eat some fruit.
    Take a walk outside.
    Those small changes will become bigger
    and you will be glad you started now."
