Ok - July 1, 2017 and I am finally motivated .... seriously! Talked with my sister who has lost 60 pounds on her own, and she is disabled and can't exercise and is 71 years young! What is my excuse? She and I have reached the exact same weight. I go visit the family in October. We challenged each other to see how much weight we can loose before then. My goal is 20 pounds. I have 50 at a minimum to loose before I can get to even the "overweight" status. I lost 40 pounds about 4 years ago - I can do it again! So I have lost those first easy pounds - 3 lbs this week so far! Good start.

I am a 63 year old "girl" who lives in Jacksonville, Florida. I love reading, walking, doing crafts, travel and watching movies, spending time with friends and family (duh) and life in general. I am also an avid genealogist. With my crafts right now I have set a new goal with my crochet. I want to make at least 52 hats and scarves this year and give them to the homeless shelter for their "guests". I hope they will enjoy the personal touch and know that someone does care about their well-being.

My favorite books (and now TV series) are Outlander series and the Game of Thrones by George RR Martin, Robin Hobb's Books: Rain Wild Chronicles and Liveship Traders, The Fool series - these are only a few of the series books that I have enjoyed. I am always looking for new books, so if you have a good book I would love to hear from you.

Favorite movies: Gone With The Wind (my parent's first date movie), Harry Potter series, The Butcher's Wife (anything Demi Moore is in), Lord Of The Ring series. These are only a few of the great movies I have enjoyed.

I am loving SparkPeople and will be around here for a very long time. This is the best support site I have ever found, and I know it will be a large part for my success in meeting weight goals.

My Goals:
I want to loose 50 lbs.

My Program:
I am following no plan except to track what I eat with the Nutrition Tracker and keeping my calories under the numbers they recommend. This worked before, and it will work again.

Personal Information:
I am a 63 year old "girl" who lives in Jacksonville, Florida. I now weigh TOO much. I am disabled, so am always home and not running around at a job, so burning calories is a struggle. In April I did adopt a little dog, so now am getting some walking exercise every day. A win-win!

Other Information:
I love reading and playing games on my computer, I also love playing Mah Jong. I struggle at getting there, but do water aerobics whenever possible (the winter months are even more challenging). I write poetry and crochet.

    Hi. Came across your sparkpage while viewing another. Wishing you a good week. Also, if you would like to try something different with a little challenge...I have one for you to consider. It's a small private team that competes with others within the larger X-Weighted team. Doing various challenges. Runs for 8 weeks. Stop by my sparkpage and click on the X-Weighted 10 Challenge....Dwindling_Divas team. Join, look it over and add your name to the sign-up thread. Main requirement is to post weight weekly...other activities, all though very beneficial, are optional.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks.

    Keep working to transform your good intentions into steps of success. I have confidence that you can do it. Thanks for the blender goodie. I know that if I make my own smoothies they will be healthier than store bought.
