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.

    discover and treasure the beauty and sweetness of the everyday moments.”

    "A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds;
    it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities
    that were somehow absent before the change."

    "I love music.
    For me, music is morning coffee.
    It's good medicine.
    It's pure magic.
    A good song is like a good meal-I just want to inhale it
    and then share a bite with someone else."

    "The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies
    and serene lakes.
    It has enough lush forests, flowered fields and sandy beaches.
    It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day.
    What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it. "
