"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!

    Some doors lead to amazing things.
    Some doors lead to...well, not much.
    But the more doors a person tries, the greater the
    chances are that those amazing things will be discovered.

    If you try once and succeed, you're amazingly lucky.
    If you try 1000 times and succeed, you've earned it.
    The only trick is to keep on trying until it happens.”

    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.”

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~*~Ways I Was Raised~*~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    "I didn't just grow up. I was taught to speak when I enter a room,
    say please & thank you, to have respect for my elders,
    lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door for the person
    behind me, say excuse me when it's needed,
    & to love people for who they are, not for what I can get from them!
    I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated!"

    Thanks for checking out my blog - actually someone else suggested it in a comment on someone else's blog that I saw - I do think the FatSecret site really does look quite good for conversations with fellow sparkers - are you going to check it out/join? I'll be continuing on sp for the rest of the BLC46 which ends 30th July - and whatever the admin/tech volunteers decide to do for BLC47 I will join that. But FatSecret looks like a keeper for sure!
