Let's make this the best JULY ever. Let's use all 31 days to make improvements. Yes, I am counting down the days to 8-17.Don't know where I'll go from here. SparkAmerica is nothing new as Chris started it for companies in '14. I can't see where it is any use to me.
This is my 13th Sparkversary, so thanks to finally finding a doctor who put me on Metformin, Armour Thyroid, and Bydureon, I've been able to lose weight, with about 10# to go. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June '17, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. . I'm continuing to exercise daily. I find Robert Cywes M.D. on Youtube has interesting talks on weight loss, auto-immune diseases, and Type 2 Diabetes.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success. "

I've been a Sparker for thirteen years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, and four GC.

My 13th year goal is to EXERCISE daily.
My 2nd son is a Cancer survivor now for twelve years.

    I mostly grew up in Southern Illinois also...one of the boys in our class was Rex Forcht, he
    died after returning home, sick. Another boy in my class and his brother joined up, the
    older one, Ronnie, threw himself on a grenade to save his buddies...his brother grieved the
    rest of his life...so when my husband was wounded he was in Cambodia where we weren't....
    so he got no purple heart for that one.

    I bet you and I could have quite a talk....I used to live in Chester until we moved here to be
    with my husbands' parents who had moved here to take care of his Dads' folks.

    Thank you for mentioning the boys from your school who went to Nam....my husband
    joined at 17, and while it decimated his health, he said if he had it to do over, he would.

    I am just guessing since you mentioned Sparta and Marissa you are near Randolph Co., IL?

    Let me know, if you can.............
