Sixty one years young... now to be fit and toned.

I'm now 61--- quit smoking for my 50th birthday- the best present I could have ever given myself. I gained the typical 20 pounds they say you gain when you quit smoking. . Those 20 new pounds are right around my mid section and 11 years later they are still with me.

I realize that while I have learned alot here on SP - am aware of so much more and have developed some new great healthy habits - I have to be brave enough and strong enough to CHANGE. I cannot read and type my way to weight loss. Glad to be here making online friends to learn from, encourage and celebrate success with.

I have opened up my food tracker and fitness pages for public viewing ---- sharing my life will lead to learning more about everyone's experience on the path to fitness. Comment on anything you see.
Im just now entering a new phase of life. I have retired from a 35 year career.. This means i get to decide what i want to be when i grow up.................... trim and fit is definitely on that list.

.......... Now to just do it !

You have a choice each day - to throw in the towel or use it to wipe your face! emoticon

I have learned I cannot do it all at once. But I can do at least one thing every day to make an effort to be healthy.

You are doing amazing. Being in the top five for team fitness minutes is inspiring!
Continue to make small efforts every day and it will all add up to success! Together we can do this!!!
