"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!

    Falling leaves, hot apple cider, football games, hoodies,
    hayrides, bonfires with smores, corn mazes, boots, pumpkins,
    cozy sweaters, caramel apples, nature walks, picking apples,
    pumpkin patches, crisp apples, putting out fall decorations,
    take a photoshoot in a leaf pile, baking pumpkin cookies.
    crisp mornings & chilly nights, and pumpkin 'spice' everything.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon September emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    September brings fall, with the leaves falling, changing to colors of red,
    orange, gold, yellow, and brown. It brings cooler temperatures, shorter days,
    as we start to wear long-sleeved shirts, bring out the sweatshirts we've had
    packed away for months, and the jackets we wished we did not have to wear
    for awhile. We smell fall in the air, as we the pick the vegetables from
    the gardens, & the plants we bring in before the frost.
    We see flocks of geese traveling to warmer weather, and enjoy watching
    the children playing in the leaves, as they laugh, smile, & have fun.
