Improving Me!

Here's to a healthier, happier 2016!

I've made many improvements since January 1, 2010, when I first joined SparkPeople, but I'm still working to be a better me. This program helps me to focus more on my health, and I have made many great SparkFriends whose strength, motivation, and encouragement have helped me along this life journey.

Thank you, SparkPeople!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog today. And I'm with ya! as the years moved on, so did my high heels . . . today you'll find me in either Birkenstocks or Keens, having passed along my 'dress up clothes' to others who can use them.

Thank you for the goodie. He is improving and may be released to a rehab facility here in town. The hospital he is in is 120 miles from here but they saved his life. Stroke at 55!
