Happy Summer!

Hi my name is Risa...I've been on and off here on Sparkpeople since 2007...formally under the name "Sunflowerisa"... for my love of sunflowers and how it inspires me....you know, how it's always reaching up towards the sun.

I had a stroke in February '14 and I'm still recovering. It affected my short-term memory...but it has gotten much, much better.

Recently diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic.... I'm not Diabetic ... but I'm really close! I need to keep an eye on my sugar ...
Hi my name is Risa...I've been on and off here on Sparkpeople since 2007...formally under the name "Sunflowerisa"... for my love of sunflowers and how it inspires me....you know, how it's always reaching up towards the sun.

Recently diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic.... I'm not Diabetic ... but I'm really close! I need to keep an eye on my sugar level and keep it under control by diet and exercise.

I'm starting back slow but steady...my goal is to be living, feeling healthy and good! I'm here back on Sparkpeople for good!

I am now ready for a healthy and happier life - so my new sparkname is "Readyrisa".

2015 is my zodiac year - year of the sheep..which is cool and I am happy about ...Whoo-hoo!

emoticon Hoping your Monday was a happy one. Today's quote for you by Confucius:

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.”

So, here's hoping you have a glorious week filled with rising above whatever challenges the week may bring you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
