Hello May!

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.

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 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!

"There is INSIDE of YOU
ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Gorgeous,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes

Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be,
