I live in Cheapeake VA. I have been on Spark for a few years and while I lost 23 pounds, I am working on the next 25 lbs. to lose. I want to stay healthy as I get older as I am 73 years old so its like now or never......right! I was always thin until I retired from nursing and then with some medical issues, surgeries, etc. got side-tracked.
I am counting steps, drinking a lot of water and decreasing portion size and keeping my calories within a certain range. I have a lot of support on Spark and I have made some wonderful friends! WE can all do this by making it a priority in our life! Here's to Healthy Eating!

"I'm not old enough to play baseball or football. I'm not eight yet. My mom told me when you start baseball, you aren't going to be able to run that fast because you had an operation. I told Mom I wouldn't need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I'll just hit them out of the park. Then I'll be able to walk."

“I keep losing weight, but it keeps finding me..”
“Inside me is a thin woman trying to get out.. I usually shut the woman up with chocolate..”
“I’m on a 30-day diet. So far, I’ve lost 15 days..”
“Eat whatever you want, and if someone tries to lecture you about your weight.. EAT THEM TOO..” “My diet plan:
“Make all of my friends cupcakes; the fatter they get, the thinner I look..”
“I’m on a seafood diet. I see food, and I eat it..”
“Didn’t go to the gym today, but.. The cashier’s name at Mcdonald’s was Jim. So, same thing..”
“I’m on that new diet where you eat everything and pray for a miracle..”
“It’s called DIET, because all the other 4-letter words were taken..” –
“I’ve been dieting ALL morning. AM I SKINNY YET??”
“I borrowed some of your Weight Watchers points this weekend..”
“I just want to lose weight while staying in bed, watching TV, and eating girl scout cookies. Is that really too much to ask?”
“Dear Diet, things just aren’t going to work out between us. It’s not me, it’s you. You are tasteless, boring and I can’t stop cheating on you..”
