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.

    Hi Terri, been cooler here so we are getting the yard all cleaned up. Put my umbrellas away and just clean up for winter. I don't think we will get Fall here, will just go to Winter so we are getting ready. We did make our trip to Big Bear, was warm and not much Fall color, we had a nice time. Was nice to get out. Have a fun emoticon drive through and have a fun weekend sweet friend emoticon emoticon emoticon

    One step at a time is enough for me. Impatience is simply a way
    of beating yourself up.

    The more you give, the more you get.
    The more you laugh, the less you fret.
    The more you do unselfishly,
    the more of everything you share,
    the more you'll always have to spare,
    the more you love, the more you'll find
    that life is good and friends are kind,
    For only what we give away
    enriches us from day to day.

    Hope you had a nice weekend Terri, was nice here and finally cooling off. Have a great new week emoticon emoticon emoticon
