"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.

For health and happiness, I won't settle; I'm a Rebel!

    Falling leaves, hot apple cider, football games, hoodies,
    hayrides, bonfires with smores, corn mazes, boots, pumpkins,
    cozy sweaters, caramel apples, nature walks, picking apples,
    pumpkin patches, crisp apples, putting out fall decorations,
    take a photoshoot in a leaf pile, baking pumpkin cookies.
    crisp mornings & chilly nights, and pumpkin 'spice' everything.
