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.

    Saturday: Jason is feeling good. Hallelujah! I am so pleased. We will pack up and take off. Long drive, but ready to be home.

    We have to return in October, and then again in April. No problem! Just have to await the final path report, but the surgeon said “there’s nothing left of that nodule.” Ok, then.

    Have a good Saturday.

    I’m sorry you’re the same with exercise. People just don’t get it “you need to build your muscles up and then it wouldn’t tire you so much!”. And you just tell them, thanks, but that’s not the way this works.
