Hello Sparkfriends!

Since joining Sparkpeople a couple of years ago 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 last year!
I have been able to keep it at a normal level trough diet and exercise. I have brought my cholesterol down 36 points this year 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.

May 2016 bring great things your way!!!

    Terri, Glad you are enjoying your sister's visit. We just got back from 5 days in Chicago suburbs for a niece's wedding on Friday. Spent lots of time with the girls and their families. It was very hot, but spent time inside playing Mexican Train dominoes and cooking together and enjoying our time. This summer is flying by.
    Take care

    Thanks for the update Terri, sounds like so much fun, always wish I lived in a town like that.
    Been very hot here so I have been staying in, hard for me. Today it finally cooled off so i was able to go on a nice morning walk, felt so good.
    I did go to an outdoor movie and picnic, was fun, but halfway through the movie I had to go home was getting eaten by mosquitoes, lo.
    Have fun with your Sister. emoticon
