Retirement is a time to get fit

Feb- 2008- After many years of yo-yo dieting and six months of menopause hitting me hard, I am resolved to making my weight loss a priority. I have lost over 30 pounds since August 2007 and plan on getting back to my goal weight for the first time in over 15 years.

Feb- 2008- After many years of yo-yo dieting and six months of menopause hitting me hard, I am resolved to making my weight loss a priority. I have lost over 30 pounds since August 2007 and plan on getting back to my goal weight for the first time in over 15 years.

As of January 2010, my husband and I are both happily retired and determined to make our health and fitness a priority. No more excuses about not having enough time. Walking is our exercise of choice and doing so in various parks around the area enhances the enjoyment of the process. Plenty of healthy cooking going on as well and with two people interested in the cooking, there is always something good to eat. I go to Weight Watchers and have done well in the past on the "core" plan. Now I am counting points and eating lots of "filling foods". I'm interested in learning more about walking for fitness and trying new recipes.
As of July 2012, my youngest daughter has graduated from high school and on her way to Texas Tech University. I am on my way to losing my weight for the umpteenth and hopefully last time. Still doing Weight Watchers and am back to eating well and some activity. Looking forward to what retirement after your last high schooler is like. Wish me luck!

It's great to "see" you again on Spark People. Sounds like you had a long trip.
I just noticed that you sent me a goodie... for some reason I didn't get an email and I hadn't checked my page for awhile.
Hope this winter is treating you well and you've been enjoying your retirement.
Happy January! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
