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.

Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad you're feeling stronger & more energetic, but as always, please don't overdo it even though you have the "heart" to go, go, go!

Hope tomorrow is an even better day...slow and steady wins the race!

Hugs and warm wishes to you every minute, Kay!
