I'm diabetic and I want to change the way I feel! It's time for me to take charge of myself & to get in better control!
The path to a healthier Lifestyle is there for the taking!
There will be many obsticles on the way to success, But the only one who can truly change this is myself! There are just so many open doors here with SP, & I will not let myself be shut out! I am doing this for Myself, first of all, so that I can be around to watch My Grandchildren grow up! Then for My Wonderful Family in General! They need me as much as I need all of them! Hugs!

Feel The Spark~ by Polly

Shout it out, if you feel like it,
We're here to get healthy & to be fit.
Losing weight, is not merely a game,
Working hard to do it, oh what a shame.

Up in the morning and setting a plan,
Not just out sunning working on a tan.
Looking for ways to find a healthy cure,
Having a healthy breakfast that's for sure.

Pushing away after meals from the table,
Taking a walk as much as we're able.
Our bodies were meant for moving & stretching,
Not lounging around with snacks to be fetching.

The scale is tough as tough as can be,
Up's & downs are there for us to see.
It's never too late start getting in shape,
Check the inches lost with a measuring tape.

Now listen up Spark Friends & listen well,
Remember healthy fruits & veggies are swell
We're here for a reason & in a single glance,
Watching shrinking bodies fitting into smaller pants.
