    I don't know without a picture. But yes, it's OK. Also, please avoid the use of capitals for a complete sentence. It is considered shouting in chat speak.

    Re: Hi am Marsha

    I'd prefer: I am in good physical condition; I exercise every day.
    Or: I am in good physical condition, as I exercise every day

    It took me a minute or two before I saw the difference between Marsha21's post and your preference. I think I need an upgrade on my contacts.

    Multiple punctuation marks are ungrammatical.

    Would you call it a preference? I'd call the original wrong. God forbid that comma splices become optional.
