As you can tell by my user name I am a proud Grandmother who is known as Nana. I retired in May! I am having a wonderful time with my new found freedom. I need to lose some weight so that I can keep active and enjoy many years of retirement.

I lost over 50 pounds between April 17, 2011 and December 1, 2011 using Sparks. Right after completion, I did a good job of maintaining my weight. Over the past few years I have gone up and down. I currently need to once again lose 50 pounds to be at my ideal weight, but ultimately I want to feel better in my clothes and to reduce stress on my joints. I had my left hip replaced in March of 2015. I will need to have the other hip replaced in the next 2 years.

Member Since: 4/17/2011

My Goals:
Final goal weight 138. My goals this time around are going to focus on my health and taking the weight off in a way that fits my new retired life style. I am not planning to drop my weight in one frantic dash. I am going to have a long term goal of reaching 138. My first phase will be to lose 10 pounds before I leave on my next trip.

Weigh 178 by September 20, 2016.

Drink lots of water. Eat light snacks 3 times per day. Have my main meal mid-day.

My Program:
Eating 1200-1400 calories per day.

I am going to use Slim Fast shakes 2 times per day. My one meal per day will be around 400 calories, with a protein and salad or other low cal side. I am going to eat 3 - 100 calorie snacks per day. Between phases I will be eating to enjoy life, but will be in maintenance mode. Which means not overeating or too many treats.

Drinking 8 glasses of water per day.

Personal Information:
I live in Northern California.
I love to travel, read and garden. I retired in May and am loving my new found freedom. I have already taking two trips and am planning 3 more for in the next 6 months. I have two grown sons and 2 grandchildren who are all doing me proud.

    well I have 1 more major bill that HAS to be paid off and that will be in 13 months I will only be 63 and still to early so if I can STAND to do another 9-12 months ...no more than 2 more winters I will and pay off another bill. I won't leave my mom by herself and since Joshua my son moved back from New York, and finally has a job he is helping me out a lot around the house and starting to pay me back for helping him out financially. So it is getting there!

    good to hear from you! Looks like your bowing out before me! I'm jealous! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Lfe is an experiment. The more... the merrier!

    Being adventurous is one way of learning about ourselves and the world around us. Interrupting the everyday monotony by being open to new possibilities and people keeps our perspective on life, fresh. Take risks, use good judgement, listen to your gut and go for it when it feels right. Let's gift ourselves a life of dancing 'outside the box', while we still can.

    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. - Will Rogers

    To become and maintain success calls for the willingness to work hard, a bit of luck and an unending desire to improve upon ourselves. It's a bumpy ride but don't lose sight on where you want to be or the person you know you're meant to become. Stay the course, keep moving forward and you will get there. Have an excellent week and live your best life... hugs! •¨¯`💕
