"Once in a blue moon we find a gem!" SO glad I happened upon Sparkpeople!

2019~
This is my third year with Sparkpeople, and it continues to be a stabilizing force in my life.

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!

    Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
    The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late".
    The second one said, "There are witches in the air".
    The third one said, "But they might be scary"
    The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
    The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run"
    .
    "Wooooooo" went the wind,And out went the lights.
    And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
    """""Enjoy this day with all your might"""""
    Remove the pumpkin cover, shouting out, "Oh me or my!!"

    We flash them, we smash them.
    We push them way up.
    We shake them, we stuff them
    In the wrong sized cup.

    Our boyfriends/husbands just crave them,
    Our children have drained them.
    Some of us have even decided to name them.

    We go through our lives and knock them about.
    But one thing is certain, one thing I must SHOUT!
    Our boobies have been there through thick and through thin,
    And life is too precious to let cancer win!
