"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!

    Whatever happens, wherever you go, whatever you do,
    Remember this;
    No one can take the Fire out of your soul,
    the Stars from your eyes, the passion in your heart.
    Those are yours forever.

    Imagine that day where you can finally say I did it! When you can say, I never gave up, I never quit! Imagine that day when you win that gold medal, or reach your goal weight. Where these moments of pain turn into memories for that goal you wanted to obtain. It might take long to reach that moment, but as soon as you get there you’ll thank yourself for the rest of your life.

    No one likes to move beyond their comfort zone, but as the saying goes, that's
    where the magic happens. It's where we can grow, learn, and develop in a way
    that expands our horizons beyond what we thought was possible.-Andy Molinsky

    When you feel dog tired at night, it may be because you've growled all day long.
