I am Living Healthier with Spark People. It is spring 2018. The characteristic buzz of the whirling wings of selasphorus hummingbirds is in the air.

After initially being introduced to Spark People in 2010, I left in quick order. I returned in late December 2013 and have undergone an amazing transformation. I feel so much better. I love the feeling of being “at home” in my body again!

I have maintained below an initial goal weight of 144 lbs. since June 2014. More specifically, I have experienced a very slow, downward trend since entering maintenance nearly 4 years ago. I do believe that my body has taken me to the low region of its healthy weight range.

I find myself atypically thin in a country that finds nearly one third of its population overweight, over one third of its population obese, and nearly eight percent of its population extremely obese meaning that a whopping 70%+ find themselves overweight or obese in the United States. I was a part of that statistic for about 20 years. No more ...

It has taken consistent effort and focused attention to improve my health and well-being. The journey has not been easy; but, has been well worth the effort and continues to unfold. This community has been far more than an information source. Resources, support, encouragement and inspiration abound here.

So, give a look at what’s on offer here at Spark People. Get engaged and stick around.

    Well, this is exciting! As with many Sparkers, I find I learn as much from the blog comments as I do from the blogs themselves -- and I've clicked on your name from time to time to say "thank you," but have been unable to leave a message as your page was private. Not today, though! So -- thank you. Your comment on WATERMELLEN's "Settling In" blog about the foresight of the East Bay Regional Park District led me here. (Small world. I grew up in Kensington, and my Aunt Esther was one of the founding members of Save the Bay.)

    Always feel you have the power to impact a person even w/a simple smile. . . . even when you don’t feel like smiling, put it on anyway and see how your energy changes. Jeannie Kang

    Thank you for reading my blog about my dress code rebellion and sharing your story
    While the images from the South were horrific, I became aware of the subtle and not so subtle ways we were told who it was OK to associate with and what would happen to us if we did not comply.
    As for women, It’s hard to imagine now how many obstacles, great and small, that we faced and how once it was just accepted it as “the way things were.”

    Nobody knows better than you about the capacity to exercise joy amidst challenges!! And perhaps the best way of honouring those making such incredible sacrifices during this pandemic is to exercise the joy which give meaning to the lives they are working so hard to support and to sustain . ..
