"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!

    Stop limiting yourself. Change your mindset from I CAN'T to HOW CAN I?

    October gave a party..the leaves by hundreds came.
    The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, and leaves of every name.
    The Sunshine spread a carpet, and everything was grand,
    Miss Weather led the dancing, and Professor Wind the band.

    The Chestnuts came in yellow..the Oaks in crimson dressed.
    The lovely Misses Maple in scarlet looked their best;
    all balanced to their partners, and gaily fluttered by.
    The sight was like a rainbow, new fallen from the sky.

    Then, in the rustic hollow, at hide-and-seek they played,
    The party closed at sundown, and everybody stayed.
    Professor Wind played louder and they flew along the ground;
    And then the party ended, in jolly 'hands around.'

    Happy weekend! Don’t forget to weigh in on Saturday!

    What sets apart the successful people from the unsuccessful people? It boils down to one thing and it is successful people keep trying. Regardless of the number of times that you fall down, always stand up and continue the race!
