I am Living Healthier with Spark People. It is spring 2018. The characteristic buzz of the whirling wings of selasphorus hummingbirds is in the air.

After initially being introduced to Spark People in 2010, I left in quick order. I returned in late December 2013 and have undergone an amazing transformation. I feel so much better. I love the feeling of being “at home” in my body again!

I have maintained below an initial goal weight of 144 lbs. since June 2014. More specifically, I have experienced a very slow, downward trend since entering maintenance nearly 4 years ago. I do believe that my body has taken me to the low region of its healthy weight range.

I find myself atypically thin in a country that finds nearly one third of its population overweight, over one third of its population obese, and nearly eight percent of its population extremely obese meaning that a whopping 70%+ find themselves overweight or obese in the United States. I was a part of that statistic for about 20 years. No more ...

It has taken consistent effort and focused attention to improve my health and well-being. The journey has not been easy; but, has been well worth the effort and continues to unfold. This community has been far more than an information source. Resources, support, encouragement and inspiration abound here.

So, give a look at what’s on offer here at Spark People. Get engaged and stick around.

    Drama does not just walk into your life. Either you create it, invite it, or associate with it.

    Thank you for your nice comment on my page.

    My dad retired from McDonnell Douglas. He work from the Gemini missions to the Space Shuttle. He met all the astronauts and collected all the space patches.
    He doubled majored in Physics and Engineering at Arizona State University.
    He is a smart man. He was also a carpenter and is still a musician. He plays the euphonium in a community band for the past 25 years.
    I like him a lot. :-)

    Thanks for your comments on my "do" blog today. You gave me a couple of "e" words for thought with "energy" and "envelope". We'll see what percolates for tomorrow... you are one of the special Sparkers that make it meaningful to be here! emoticon
