Life is one of the greatest adventures given to each one of us ... enjoy every day as much as you can ... learn to choose the things that will make you the best you can be.

My first year with SparkPeople (2008) was a success! I did manage to lose 35 pounds, Now it is 5 years later I've retired, and have decided to restart the program. I'm hoping the extra time on my hands will help me to visit daily, and the support will from teammates will help keep me on track.

    Hi Lynn, thanks for stopping by to say "hello" on my page~

    I had my weekly weigh-in last night, was really hoping for a 3 lb. loss for the week, but I missed it by .2 lbs. still, 2.8 is close enough. I'm shooting for 2 lbs. a week, that's my goal. I've lost 12 lbs. so far in 2013.

    I joined the "Eat Better, Feel Fitter" Challenge 3 weeks ago, I start my 4th week tomorrow. The challenge is to try and eat more veggies and fruits daily. Check it out!

    I see on your page you are retired. What kind of job did you retire from? I work in Law Enforcement (25 years) and I'm looking forward to retiring in a few years. I'm "eligible to retire" now, but I'm too far away in age to get medicare and SS.

    Hope you have a great weekend!


    It's sunny and mild temps in Atlanta, Georgia today!!

    Hi LM, thanks for the comment on my Spark Page. We're still in the "soup" here in Atlanta. Looks like we're going to stay in the "soup" until Saturday. I hope you have a great time in FL and the weather is nice for you while there.

    Just try and stay focused and remember.."What we do TODAY can improve all our tomorrows" .

    Spark on...
