Living Healthy, Loving Life!!!!!!!!

I am back after being gone for over a year. My wife asked for a divorce about a year ago, 29 years and it is over. So I sunk to a very bad place, but I am back. I need to surround myself with healthy habits, and positive people. I now live in Chicago, enjoying living on the South Side. Just started walking this week, and will continue to walk daily. There are a few people waiting and watching for me to fail.

Keep Watching !!!!! I'm going to be the best I've ever been.

emoticon Greetings and emoticon - I'm really glad you've joined us!! Right now is a great time to get active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support- it's also lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together.

Sometimes the best way to start is to just pick a small goal such as drinking 8 glasses of water a day or eating 5 fruits and veggies plus a small exercise goal such as increasing whatever you've been doing by 10%. There's a great article explaining how one or two changes can lead to long-term success - you can read the article at http://www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?p
ost=one_healthy_change_leads_to_another . I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized here instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' and another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
