Hello Sparkfriends!

Since joining Sparkpeople I have made a complete change in the way I live.

I am now aware of what it takes to stay fit and healthy. I use to eat whatever I wanted and not be concerned about what it might be doing to my health. As a result I had high blood pressure and cholesterol and weighed more than the Dr. said I should.

I have changed the way I eat and exercise and after being on blood pressure medicine for 7 years was taken off of it in 2014.
I have been able to keep it at a normal level through diet and exercise. I have brought my cholesterol down 36 points also. I don't think I would have been able to do it without the help of Sparkpeople. This site is full of so much information to help you be the best you can be.

I am not perfect and sway away from the program from time to time but my Sparkfriends are always there to get me back on track. Sparkfriends are very special to me! Thank you all for the support.

If you are just starting on your journey with Spark hang in there you will gain knowledge and friends that will stay with you through your ups and downs.

    Live your life and risk it all
    take some chances, take the fall
    take your time, no need to hurry
    have some fun, and never worry
    live for the little things.
