"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!

    Thank you for the goodie and lovely note. I know all about the pandemic depression and excessive eating. Yes, I'm glad the gym is open and that every precaution is taken there to keep us safe from the corona.

    I'M NOT OLD
    I woke up...I lifted my arms...I moved my knees...
    I turned my neck....Everything made the same noise.
