Thanks for the reply on my SparkPage! I love retirement in that I don't "HAVE" to go to work! I worked nights and generally went to bed at 9am and got up at 4pm. Then took another nap at 7pm and got up at 9pm to get ready for work! Of course, as a nurse, you are on your feet more than you are able to sit! It didn't stop me eating all kinds of crap though! LOL The stress was killing me and I was growing daily! It took me 3 months to wake up and smell the roses. My journey started in March! With next to no stress, my eating junk came to a screetching halt! I just woke up that morning and said, "This is enough". :) I talked to my sister, and she slipped in that she lost 47 pounds. I didn't even know she was dieting! She is my true inspiration! Basically, all she did was Join TOPS and used a smaller plate. Too cool! emoticon

Hi Bev. I retired this year too (january) I also have bad knees. I have been on spark People since July and I've lost 35 pounds altogether. Since shedding this weight I don't have a quarter of the pain I used to have. I hope that you can reach your goals and enjoy your retirement! It sure is a stress reliever not to have the worry working dumps on a person! I know I am loving retirement, it would just be better if I had tons of money to go places. LOL emoticon emoticon emoticon
