"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!

    The only difference between a casual interest and a deep desire is that the
    latter inspires a willingness to endure struggle. ~Brendon Burchard

    The most effective method of becoming a more successful person is believing in
    yourself not only for who you are now but for who you have the power to become.

    It's not what you say to everyone that determines your life, it's what you whisper
    to yourself that has the greatest power - marcandangel

    One word doesn't make a novel but it does begin a novel and from that small
    beginning everything else follows. Even if it's just "The", write something on
    that blank page. ~Laurell K. Hamilton

    A blank page is brimming with potential. It's a masterpiece in waiting.. YOURS!

    You don't get rid of yesterday by talking about it all the time.
    You get rid of its effect on you by moving forward.
