"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!

    Fantastic Lynn! This is a 10 week challenge with 9 other teams participating. We focus on healthy eating and fitness, and as the name implies, that weight loss! lol It's a great way to make it through the holidays! Last winter was my first time with BLC, and it was also the first time in my life that I managed to not only not gain over the holidays, but recorded a loss!!!

    We'll get your invite sent out the week of Nov 21st, with start weights due the week of Dec 7th. Be on the lookout for your Sparkmail and we'll see you in the team!
