When I first joined SP in January '06, I weighed 185 pounds. My goal was 25 pounds weight loss. Thus, I chose the name Silver Lady.

For awhile I just gave up even trying to lose weight, telling myself that "after all I am in my golden years it's too late in my life and I should enjoy." JANUARY '10, The scale had dipped and rose repeatedly during the year. Laxity -followed with guilt; followed by weariness of feeling guilty .
January '11. 5th year SparkVersary. Yet another 15 pounds accumulated. Time to get serious. A new resolve, a new beginning. I looked for and found the Spark Team that would provide the most support. I'm taking advantage of the many benfits of Spark People. Thanks to obtainable nutrition and exercise challenges which are provided by the leaders of the team, I am taking full advantage of Spark People.

I'm in my 70's now. My new goal? Can you believe it --my current goal is to reach 185! That's what I weighed when I first joined Spark People.

Updated in July 2013! And again January 2015. It's once again good to read my own introduction: A reminder of where I have been, what I have achieved.

    How is your weather and what state are you in? I think I may have forgot. I think you are in Missouri correct? You can always send me spark mail if you prefer. emoticon
    Thanks for you comments and liking my status. It was SO SO Windy today. The wind was hollowing outside my living room window so bad. My power was out for 4 hours this afternoon too. I think it was in the mid 40's but the Winds Made it seem like 30. Hope you are well and having some fun. Do you do a particular program for losing weight and exercise ? What works best for you. emoticon
