"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!

    If every morning, You can find a reason to say,
    “Yes, it’s going to be a beautiful day.”
    And every day, you find a reason to say,
    “Yes, it is a beautiful day.”
    And every night, you find a reason to say,
    “Yes, it was a beautiful day.”
    Then one day, You’ll look back and easily say,
    “Yes...it was a beautiful life.”
