"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!

    Well here comes another present if you dance while you sing a Christmas song. Let me know which one and your lovely big present will be in your Spark Goodies. Then pass this on to another Gem to keep the gifts flowing.

    emoticon Merry Christmas to you and have a good night. emoticon

    In order to receive your Gem Gift you must sing a Christmas carol with your family. Once you have done this, let me know (I'd like to know what you sang too!) and your gift will be on the way.

    Then you are to leave a challenge for another Gem to keep the gifts going!
