"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.

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

    The most wonderful feeling in the world is when tears turn to laughter because someone who doesn't want you to be sad said something funny to cheer you up. Suddenly you're lifted from a dark place and you know that, somehow, everything really will be okay.

    I’m happy to join another Rowdy Rebel 5% Challenge and hope you are excited, too, and ready to get to work. I’m recovering from a back injury and my exercise contribution to the team is limited, but I wanted to share some positive thoughts as we all get started.

    Best wishes for success during the challenge and reaching your goals!

    Hugs,
