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.

    As I walk, as I walk.
    "The universe is walking with me.
    In beauty it walks before me.
    In beauty it walks behind me.
    In beauty it walks below me.
    In beauty it walks above me.
    Beauty is on every side.
    As I walk I walk with beauty.

    "As the moon returns home, she whispers to the sun,
    "Time to rise and shine. The world awaits you."

    ​While the sun stirs, he peeks his head out from underneath
    the blanket of the night's sky.
    He stretches and yawns, slowly making his way up to the grand stage.

    He looks back to catch a glimpse of his love and smiles.
    She winks back. "Show time!"
    In an instant, he is ready to embrace the world again.

    And with his arms spread wide open,
    he gently kisses the horizon,
    releasing his beautiful display of strength and splendor for all to enjoy.

    As he makes his way higher into the sky, he calls out to all who listen,
    "Hello big beautiful world! It's a brand new day.
    So make it a good one!"

    "Let us not get so busy or live so fast that we can't listen to the music of the meadow
    or the symphony that glorifies the forest.
    Some things in the world are far more important than wealth;
    one of them is the ability to enjoy simple things."

    "When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, its your world for the moment.
    I want to give that world to someone else.
    Most people rush around so, they have little time to look at a flower.
    I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

    "Just because something works for someone else doesn't mean that same strategy done the same way will work for you.
    Take good ideas and enhance them.
    Build on them and tweak them to fit you and your situation.
    You are no carbon copy so copying won't work for you.
    Do what best suits you. "
