"Once in a blue moon we find a gem!" SO glad I happened upon Sparkpeople!

With age and less activity, my weight has gone up and I know I must get it down to help my joints feel better and to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol. I do fine with tracking and moderation during the daytime, but compulsive eating habits often haunt my evenings.Still working on it!

Since I joined Sparkpeople, I have improved my attitude about diet and exercise, due especially to the wisdom and motivation of the wonderful Spark teams I was lucky to find AND to the Sparky individuals who keep me growing strong.

~Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. (Author unknown.)

For health and happiness, I won't settle; I'm a Rebel!

    If you're helping someone and expecting something in return,
    you're doing business not kindness.
    ~~~Jonathan Kitavi~~~
    NOT everyone will appreciate what you do for them...YOU have to
    figure out who's worth your kindness AND who's just taking advantage....
    ~~~Unknown
    Always be sure to show compassion and kindness to strangers..
    for you never know when you may be in the company of an angel...
    angels don't always have wings.
    ~~~Nishan Panwar~~~
    Being kind to someone, only to look kind to others,
    defeats the purpose of being kind.

    I know I am not perfect. I do say the wrong thing.
    I forget all the time… I make mistakes, I burn food,
    I stain my clothes and my home is a mess…
    but if you ever need me, I will always be there…
    I will open my home and heart to you because you are my friend.
    ~Karen Kostyla~
