"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.

~Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. (Author unknown.)

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

    "We are so often caught up in our destination
    that we forget to appreciate the journey,
    especially the goodness of the people we meet on the way.
    Appreciation is a wonderful feeling, don't overlook it"

    I want to go back in time and want my childhood days back when...

    "Dad" was the only "Hero"
    "Love" was "Mom's hug"
    "Highest place on earth" was "Dad's shoulder"
    "My worst enemies" were "My own siblings"
    Only thing that could "hurt" were "skinned knees"
    The only thing "Broken" were my "Toys"
    and when "Goodbyes" meant till "Tomorrow" :')
