I am back! I used Spark People from 2008 to 2013. Then I stopped paying attention to my health. Now here it is 2019. I am on blood pressure medicine. I have sleep apnea. I weigh more than I ever have in my life.

Enough is enough. It is time to put my health and well being back in balance. I want my outside to reflect the love I have for myself today. I want to look in the mirror and be proud of what I see, knowing that what I see reflects how I feel about myself. I know that Spark People is a great tool that will help me with this and all of my other goals.

I am using spark people to help me balance my nutrition to eat the recommended amount of calories, carbohydrates, fat, and protein each day. If I do this my weight will take care of it's self.

I am thinking before I eat or spend money to be sure that the action I am about to take will lead me to my goal.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog, your so sweet! I have mixed feelings sometimes about talking about that stuff because of all the negative feedback I have gotten, but I have always been a open person (accept me or leave me alone is my motto), and I feel I am making the right choices now in my life even though I have made so many wrong ones. emoticon emoticon
