Welcome! Life is Good!!!

Hi! I'm 61 years old, 5'3", mother of two grown sons, retired, and happily married. Here's my "Sparkpeople History" in a nutshell...

5/1/09 I found SparkPeople! I followed the program, ate in range, tracked my calories and exercised. By mid August, I had lost 20 pounds and got to my original goal weight of 125 pounds. That fall, I stopped exercising and tracking my food consistently. Over the next 12 months, I regained almost all of the weight (18 pounds).

Hi! I'm 61 years old, 5'3", mother of two grown sons, retired, and happily married. Here's my "Sparkpeople History" in a nutshell...

5/1/09 I found SparkPeople! I followed the program, ate in range, tracked my calories and exercised. By mid August, I had lost 20 pounds and got to my original goal weight of 125 pounds. That fall, I stopped exercising and tracking my food consistently. Over the next 12 months, I regained almost all of the weight (18 pounds).

8/26/10 I went back to tracking my food and I back to exercising regularly. My program is simple: burn at least 200 calories a day in cardio exercise and track all my food.

1/15/11 In November, I decided to start tracking what I call my "Seven Daily Goals." I blogged about them every day. I reached my new goal weigh of 130 about three months later. I became very consistent with tracking all food. I also became much more consistent with cardio exercise. I do a variety of things to keep me moving. I think it's different this time around, because I don't plan to stop tracking or exercising ever!

3/1/11 I'm back at my goal weight and have decided to stop tracking for a while. I know I'll go back to it because it works so well for me. For now, I'm taking a break from it and will do that as long as I stay in my goal range.

9/15/11 My father just died...he had dementia and I have been taking care of him for the past three years. This summer was particularly hard and I regained 15 pounds between May 1 and today.

1/2/13 My husband is retiring in June and we have decided to go on an extended self-supported bicycle tour around the perimeter of the US and then onto Australia after he retires. The thought of biking around the US carrying everything we need for over a year on our bikes gives me plenty of incentive to exercise now to get in shape!

8/14/13 I just found out I have a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Our bike ride is now on hold. I'm fighting for my life.

My favorite sayings are:
If at first you don't succeed, you're running about average.

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

I did read that about Robin Williams. I believe that I read that he had started having Lilliputian hallucinations. So sad.

Thank you for the goodie. I don't like running to the ER every time I have chest pain, but when the nitro didn't work all the great when I took the second one. I figured it was time to have it checked out.
