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.

    It’s finally here! Happy Friday!
    Here are a few jokes about magicians that should make your frown or your troubles disappear!

    I come from a family of failed magicians. I have two half-sisters.

    ****************************************
    **************************

    A magician is performing for a crew on a ship, and for each performance he does the ships captain comes with his parrot.
    But his parrot always ruins the trick by saying “ It’s in his sleeve!” Or “it’s In his hat!” One day the magician got fed up with the parrot, and during one of his performances he took out a revolver and shot at the parrot. He missed it and hit a propane tank which blew up the entire ship.
    The only two survivors were the magician and the parrot who were both floating on driftwood.
    The parrot then said “ Alright you got me, where’s the darn ship?!”

    ****************************************
    **************************

    Advice for single women: You should never marry a magician because every time you need him to do something, he disappears!

    ****************************************
    **************************
    A lumberjack went in to a magic forest to cut a tree. Upon arrival, he started to swing at the tree, when it shouted, “Wait! I’m a talking tree!"
    The lumberjack grinned as he swung his ax, “And you will dialogue!"

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    emoticon I’m reading an excellent book about where people keep their cutlery; it’s top drawer.

    emoticon I’m reading a book about anti-gravity, and it’s impossible to put down!

    emoticon Bookkeepers cause real problems for a library.

    emoticon I’m reading a book about teleportation. It’s bound to get me somewhere.

    emoticon I’m reading a book about mazes. I got lost in it.

    emoticon It’s Okay to borrow a book from the library now and then, but try not to overdue it.

    I’m not addicted to books, I can quit as soon as I finish this chapter! Happy Friday, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
