I know the difference in how I feel when I eat good food and then I eat sugar food. Doesn't do good for me messes my body and energy up. emoticon

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

I am amazed that foods that are not considered healthy, are not really a temptation for me. So far not even during this holiday season.

It is so great to read all the nice things you are finding as you strive for health. I read the list and feel myself thinking "yes, I know, me too"... so many great things I wasn't expecting to come along with my healthier lifestyle.
I really have found so much stress lifted as I am not so overly worried about what I "should" be eating, how I "should" be exercising - and feeling FAT in general... I have habits in place and don't have to focus on those things too much any more it is becoming much easier to be healthy

Girls we need to relax once in a while so go for it. I am much happier since I joined Spark people. I changed my food yesterday to try and get my vitamins up to the good level. The Thanksgiving dinner did not do it. I track what I eat everyday and use the nutrition when I am posting them to find out what each food has. If it is not good I will not eat it again. have a wonderful weekend.

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

Happy Thanksgiving and may God give you many blessings. I baked a turkey breast, sweet potato casserole, dressing, corn cranberry sauce and only ate 1 spoon full of each. 1 piece of Turkey on a dessert plate. Baked a pecan pie, pumpkin pie, oatmeal raisin and oatmeal butterscotch cookies. I will only eat a 1 inch wide piece of pie and 1 cookie which are small. That is my Thanksgiving meal with a 4 oz glass of white wine. I stay on my healthy eating always. This is enough to satisfy me. All be thankful for what you have. Love the Spark people.

I fight everyday to continue to be healthy and to live. I am fighting a battle to live and when I go back to the Dr in January she will let me know if I have to start chemo which I sure don't want too. Everyday I find myself fight harder because I am getting weaker. I will not give up the battle of life and will continue to eat healthy, exercise and survive. I love Spark people,friends and teams. God bless.

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

With what I eat, exercise, good sleep I was able to bowl 3 leagues today and night. Not saying I did good but it was everyone so the balls just would not go where they normally do. Won't do that too often just once in awhile when someone needs me to sub. Love the Spark people.

Had the house cleaned today and it looks nice. Come to find out I thought I was doing a lot of work and getting the dog hair under control. The vacuum was clogged and she vacuum a lot again. Keep trying, still fighting the cold but I don't let it stop me. emoticon

Thank you PRAIRIE CROCUS that is nice of you. I keep learning about different foods and epecially fruits and what values they have to enhance our health. I eat a lot of fruit and drink 5 different 100% fruit juices a day. I will fight to stay healthy and the food I put in my body I will make sure it will help me fight. emoticon

Keeping up my healthy eating and exercises even when I am not feeling gives me the drive to continue on. Today up early to pick up GD took her to her bowling league, home , lunch made cookies , dinner and played with her. Still here till midnight and I am still going. Will always fight to be strong and God will always be with me. Love Spark people

Good for you, KATHYJO56 !
Getting enough good sleep is so important.


Being able to do a significant amount of exercise.
I am quite pleased with my ability to swim 1 kilometer.
This exercise helps my stamina, and boosts my confidence .

I have such a better mental outlook on things. I look at myself differently than I did when I started this journey and I like what I am now finding.

Since last week I have been fighting a cold but I see some improvement because I have made sure I am drinking a lot of juices, eating healthy taking the medicine and getting rest. With the leukemia it takes longer to get over things and I am use to it. I didn't ever get colds before 1 in 36 years and now I have had 2 this year. I don't let anything get me down and I just keep going. Love the Spark site and learn.

It is so great to read how much better so many of you are feeling! Chattiegirl - I love what you said about housework! I find that I am able to get so much more done at a time now than I was last year! I have the energy (& drive)to accomplish many more things that used to get left undone around the house.

Changing the way I do housework and I get more done without getting tired or my back hurting.10 minutes at a time on any chore, then more to another kind. With a house full you couldn't do it but by myself I ca. Love the Spark site.

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do
