What challenges me will not frighten me!

I've been on SP for 18 months now and while I have not reached my weight loss goals, I have gained a new perspective on this journey from all of the information I have acquired and reading about the struggles of other sparkers.

I recently turned 60 and to say it didn't impact me to some extent would be a lie. Of course, it impacted me. I turned around and my youngest child is now 21 (my oldest 31) and I was entering a new decade. My back started hurting and sciatica I hadn't ...
I've been on SP for 18 months now and while I have not reached my weight loss goals, I have gained a new perspective on this journey from all of the information I have acquired and reading about the struggles of other sparkers.

I recently turned 60 and to say it didn't impact me to some extent would be a lie. Of course, it impacted me. I turned around and my youngest child is now 21 (my oldest 31) and I was entering a new decade. My back started hurting and sciatica I hadn't experienced since pregnancy has flared up. But the thing is I know it isn't aging but rather the fact that after exercising regularly for a few years, I sat down. Yes, that's right, I sat down. I stopped going to Zumba and walking and all other forms of aerobic exercise.

I refuse to let these small inconveniences of minor pain rule my life. I don't have to take it as a natural process. I can live an active, healthy lifestyle while managing a few aches and pains. I am not giving up and I am not giving in.

2015 will be a year of new challenges and I plan on meeting them head on. I will move past my fear rather than giving in to it.

"If it doesn't challenge you, it cannot change you."

Just started back SparkPeople a few weeks ago and found your page. We are near in age (I'll be 58 in a couple of months), and my youngest just turned 27. My other is 28 (29 in May) and is getting married in March. :) It's amazing how quickly things can change after 50. I have also declared 2015 the year of ME! haha :) Good luck on your journey! emoticon
