Hi!!

I'm a 62 (now 64) year old woman ex workaholic that was stopped in my tracks by a really bad back. For the past 10 years I've been floundering around trying to find just the right lifestyle and diet. I found Spark People on a forum game and here I am. I confess I'm a slow starter. I found "SparkCoach" today and something changed inside of me. It seems there's more to this diet thing than I thought. I realize I need to change just about everything! I like the program here and ...
Hi!!

I'm a 62 (now 64) year old woman ex workaholic that was stopped in my tracks by a really bad back. For the past 10 years I've been floundering around trying to find just the right lifestyle and diet. I found Spark People on a forum game and here I am. I confess I'm a slow starter. I found "SparkCoach" today and something changed inside of me. It seems there's more to this diet thing than I thought. I realize I need to change just about everything! I like the program here and the site is very supportive. This 62 year old woman with a back problem is not the same as I used to be, but maybe I can find a new me, inside of me.

UPDATE 5/14. It's been two years and can you believe it, I'm two years older! I'm 64! Lol. I'm fully entrenched in the SP program and love it! If interested in my progress and life see my blogs.

I am a Learn to Swim children's instructor year round and adore it. 5/14 I just earned my Red Cross certification in water safety and Learn to Swim for all ages! Everyone should know how to swim! Message me if you are interested in Learn to Swim information. I can help you get started! :)
