I am 50+ and notice loss of flexibility and stamina more as the years pile up. I am overweight and need help reaching my goals. I am finally at the point in my life where I am ready to make ME a priority. I will be relentless in the pursuit of a healthier me.

I've been with SparkPeople for 7 years off and on. I want to be better at 60 than I was at 50! I 've had success in the past but only when I am consistent with using SP tools and resources.

Member Since: 5/20/2007

Fitness Minutes: 9,544

My Goals:
I want to look and feel better. I want to have more stamina. More specifically I want: my BMI less than 25, my blood pressure less than 140/90, to wear a size 12 or 14 again, to exercise consistently 3-5 times a week. And, I want to maintain a healthy lifestyle the rest of my days on the planet.

My Program:
The steps I'm taking to get there: Stay active in SparkPeople until I reach my goals which means staying in calorie range and try to hit that ideal carb/fat/protein split as often as possible. I will find a way to make regular exercise part of my life. I will plan snacks ahead, celebrate successes, forgive myself for setbacks and never give up. I'm combining strength and cardio and diet and appreciating the support I am getting from all of you!

Personal Information:
Closing in on 60, happily married with an adult son. I'm finally ready to make me a priority (again).

Favorites: (besides God and family)
