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.

    Thanks so much for the comment on my wt. loss. I am working harder to achieve my goal now and it is finally starting to pay off. It is with--- daily tracking and exercise 5x a week. On the other two days, I do some type of activity to keep moving. Could be grocery shop, housework, yard work, watching my grandkids, etc. I need to FOCUS and stay DETERMINED. We can do it and we will succeed, right?? emoticon emoticon
    Good luck in your journey and much happiness and success in your program each day.
    Happy Memorial day to you too! emoticon

    Well guess who is back. I have been gone a long time simply because I didn't have a computer. I won't spend as much time here as I once did, because my Sweet Hubby had to go to a Health care Center. He has improved greatly with his diabetes, but has no mobility. I go daily for several hours to visit him. I have missed my Friends on Spark People and Face Book.

    I hope you are well., I am doing ok for being 80. Hugs, Jane emoticon
