I'm 70 and live in the Midwest most of the year, but usually head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 11 and 8, and a grown DGD who just became mommy to our first great-grandchild, a girl!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have osteoarthritis and hauling all this weight around ...
I'm 70 and live in the Midwest most of the year, but usually head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 11 and 8, and a grown DGD who just became mommy to our first great-grandchild, a girl!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have osteoarthritis and hauling all this weight around is not good for that. So, in the interest of preserving my replaced hips, enjoying life, and above all, being healthier, I'm working on improving my general health and becoming more active--would love to keep up with the grandsons for a very long time! SparkPeople is giving me that chance!

My Goals:
My overall goals are simple. I want to lead a healthier lifestyle that helps me to have the energy and enthusiasm to be active and happy. In order to do this, I will take off the excess pounds by eating healthier and exercising.

My Program:
My program is also simple:
1. I will eat within my daily calorie range and abstain from evening eating and snacking.
2. I will eat at least 5-7 freggies each day.
3. I will eat 3+ protein servings daily, including at least one dairy.
4. The remainder of my calories will come in the form of carbs.
5. I will include strength and stretching exercises in my daily routine.
6. I will participate in the Silver Sneakers and water exercise programs at the Y 3-5 times each week.
7. I will continue to exercise a minimum of 10 min/day on days with no scheduled activities.
8. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 5% Fall Challenge, as well as my team activities.


Other Information:
I love to read, do genealogy, spend as much time as possible with our grandsons and new great-granddaughter. We just moved to a condo last spring, so we're adjusting to having no outdoor responsibilities. As a former gardener, I'm missing that.

Hi. Jeannie,


Ouchers on. Richard s Sore feet!! As u know from my blog, I'm also going through this. Will his clear up soon? I certainly hope so. Is he able to do any walking?? I found another bbug on my couch last night, so I was at once steaming all my furniture,,but thankfully that was the only one. It could of gotten on my sock in the elevator, or by the. Mail box. Soooo many here have them. Over 10% of the building does. It's soooo horrible. I'm. So freaked out. I would move, but it'll cost a professional more Dr. And a transfer fee,,,and I'm trying to pay off some bills so I can move bAck to the luxury apt I lived in. B4. It's nice and big,,,gorgeous, and has huge Windows which get sun all day,,than from the bedroom, u can see the sun set. It's perfect for me. I used to have a room mate to afford it, but. Lol. Kicked her out once I could afford it on my own, which is what I want again .

How r Ur eyes and foot Hon?? I think you r a neat, loving Dawggie.

Jeanne, I did check out Alamo Rose and their rates were a little cheaper per month than Texas Trails plus they gave you a free week if you stayed a month. I didn't realize they were the same owners as Texas Trails. We met a woman here who is headed to Mission to stay, she paid for a year for $950.00! She said that the sites were concrete but she has never been to the valley so never has seen the place.

I DO want to go down there this year and stay for a bit, I'm sure that we can find somewhere to stay that won't be too expensive. We are headed to our Good Sam's campout today and from there, we'll be going home. I got most of the laundry done yesterday, one more load remains but Matt said he didn't really need those clothes, so they will wait!

When are you leaving? Travel safely! Are you taking 281 down? emoticon
