"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!

    We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room,
    drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.
    Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk
    through the rooms of our lives … not looking for flaws but for potential.

    Christmas maybe over, the stockings put away,
    the chocolates and the cookies enjoyed every single day.
    Now all hurry on their way to live their busy lives,
    no more thoughts of Santa and his sleigh.

    Although the season's come & go, and Holiday's have their cheer.
    the Spirit of Christmas can stay in our heart to warm & bless all near.
    I hope you had a Merry Christmas, full of Christmas Spirit.
    As we all look forward to the beginning of a more peaceful, happier year
