My Goals:
I want to trim up, I dont expect to look like I did 50 years ago, but, a little less flab, would be nice, I want to tone up, get muscle, and get more physically fit

My Program:
I have belonged to Sparks since January of 2009, and I am going to switch to a maintenance program, I would not mind losing a couple more pounds, but I sure do not want to gain, so from here on, I will try to maintain.

Personal Information:
My name is Mary, I live in California, and I am 68 years old, and finally met my weight goal, and along the way I have become a much healthier person, All to the good.
But I went on a cruise in August and gained back 3 pounds, so I am having a very hard time getting it off.

Other Information:
I am right now reading a book called "The Gurnsey, Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" it is great, short but great, my sister turned me onto it. Guernsey is a island betwen France and England, there are a group of them called the Channel Islands, and it was occupied by the Germans during the second World War, I am sure it is fiction, but great reading and gotta be based on facta.I love to read, almost anything, not much on watching television, but do enjoy a good movie, and the ones I get to see are on Television, I was raised on a small farm (acreage) in Iowa..

Thanx for your comments and for my goodie. The first one in several years, well, since I returned. That is great getting 10,000 steps daily, and such a big help for good health. My doctor here in Madrid told me that walking needs to be my first TO DO daily. Saying that, I only have 8.000 for today and it´s late already. Good luck to you and great health. Sending best vibes right now!

Yes the temperature has been crazy warm this winter. My poor apple tree is so confused. It has budded out twice already since December. I have small apples on it from the first heat spell, now new buds.

It was 84 degrees when I took my first walk today. I only did half of it, then came home and waited for it to cool slightly, so I could go back out and finish.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
