I have been seven years on my journey to fitness in my fifties. I was inspired by being an older parent of pre-teens to get myself in shape. Starting seven years ago at age forty six I was determined to be able to nordic and down hill ski with my kids, swim, hike and the like. My twins are now 14 and I have gone from 180 pounds and 36 waist to 168 pounds and size 32 waist and keep up with them physically- including helping out as an assistant in soccer. My resting heart rate has gone from 72 to 64 and my overall cholesterol has dropped from 180 to 126! My doctor cannot believe the change!

I was tracking my exercise and calories manually and a friend mentioned Spark People- and I have found it much easier than the manual spreadsheets I was using- plus it is is a great source of information.

Hi!
Welcome to the Partnership Accountability to the Finish Line team! We are happy to have you with our team. Please feel free to introduce yourself to the team, if you have not already done so. Be sure to read the thread: "Click Here: To help find a partner and learn what to do next". It will help you find someone who has similar goals, likes, dislikes, or someone close to your age if you prefer. You will both be able to support, encourage, and just be there for each other, while on your way in reaching your goals.

If you need help finding someone or help of any kind, please let me know, as I am here to help you in anyway I can. Hope you enjoy and are able to achieve your goals on this team or any others you might join.

Have a great day!!
Barb
