Since starting with SP in July 2012, I've brought my blood sugar and blood pressure down dramatically, with both numbers being in the healthy range now. I am exercising 6 times a week, for 45-90 minutes at a time. I am eating well for the most part, but really need to get better control of night snacking. I am finally sleeping well. I am feeling better and more hopeful than I have in a long time.

I love the blank page on the newsletter with your email message. I may write a blog post determining what is on the mysterious sixth page. (This is what I do instead of my real work, of course.)

BLC challenge? I tried to click on the link to your Spark Team to figure out what the challenge entails lol!(A private team) If its strictly about weight loss I'm in maintenance mode. At 127-ish pounds I don't need to lose anymore, just keep steady where I am at!
Thanks for thinking of me Maybe in the Maintenance group I am in I should see if we have any challenges coming up I could use a challenge!
