I'm 60 years old and don't want to spend the rest of my life overweight & tired! So...I am on a quest to drop some pounds and gain some energy.

6 month update: I have lost 17 pounds, but even more importantly, I have made some good lifestyle changes and I feel so much better! I have learned to love fruits and veggies, watch my portions, and look for opportunities for exercise. I have a ways to go, but am heading in the right direction!

1 year update: I made some slips, gained back a few pounds, but have turned around once again. Have lost 15 pounds overall, but I know that without SparkPeople, I probably would have gained another 15 pounds rather that losing 15. I'm feeling HEALTHY for the first time in years!

Hi, I noticed you said you were "floundering" a bit with food/exercise. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. If having a partner that you can chat with each day will work I'd be happy to partner with you for accountability/support. We all flounder from time to time, getting back at it is difficult (I'm just back after a long illness)...baby steps. I thought I'd just jump right back in where I left off....not happening! It's taken me a few weeks to feel like I have a handle on it once again....I hope you have a great day..
