Half-Fast Old Lady Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

Thank you for your comment on my Blog.
Congratulations on getting to your goal weight. I am also looking at getting back to the weight I was during my 20's which is around 57kgs . Am initially aiming for 60kgs and see how things look.
I also have started running again, and love it. Just going slowly as I have a tight Rt Gluteal muscle that needs periodic stretching.
Certainly not letting age get in the way of my health and fitness.
