"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!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~*~Ways I Was Raised~*~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    "I didn't just grow up. I was taught to speak when I enter a room,
    say please & thank you, to have respect for my elders,
    lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door for the person
    behind me, say excuse me when it's needed,
    & to love people for who they are, not for what I can get from them!
    I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated!"

    Thanks for checking out my blog - actually someone else suggested it in a comment on someone else's blog that I saw - I do think the FatSecret site really does look quite good for conversations with fellow sparkers - are you going to check it out/join? I'll be continuing on sp for the rest of the BLC46 which ends 30th July - and whatever the admin/tech volunteers decide to do for BLC47 I will join that. But FatSecret looks like a keeper for sure!

    emoticon emoticon "Treat your life as your masterpiece." emoticon emoticon

    ""Know that you get to decide how you paint every inch of your canvas...
    color, the texture, the size, the light, everything. It really is all up to you.
    Don’t be afraid to try new things or add new designs
    because that’s what your canvas is for. Use bold colors,
    paint over mistakes, start over whenever you want.
    This is your life and your masterpiece....create one you love.”"
    ~Nikki Banas~

    The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating. Eric Micha’el Leventhal

    Lynn, if you and other Rebels, etc go elsewhere please let me know. I don't participate much, but have grown so fond of you and others here and wish everyone the best. God bless us all!
