I am 68 years old and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for a full two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again.

I am 68 years old and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for a full two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again. I switched to the Atkins program which helped me break the plateaus feel much better without the cravings. The packing and moving and unpacking and living in chaos for the last 3 months really threw a monkey wrench into that program. Still the winter holidays have usually been pretty good to me weight-wise so I trust I will manage to stay stable or lose as we get adjusted to our new environs.

An old song says that only the good die young, and I figure if I'm going to be around 200-250 years I better take care of this body!

My Goals:
My goals are simple: get my weight down about 25 more pounds and my clothes down about 2 additional sizes. My original AHA moment came when I realized 1 more pound would put me in the BMI obese category, and my target is to get into the healthy range and stay there.

My Program:
I am determined to get onto SP everyday and to track my calories when I do. Weighing and measuring portions has become a way of life. My biggest challenge has been to get our dietary habits reorganized as my husband has been our family chef for many years and now we will be sharing this task.

Personal Information:
I am transitioning from the paid workforce to retired status and look forward to discovering new places and creating new friendships.

Other Information:
I am deeply immersed in a wide variety of metaphysical activities. I welcome correspondence with those who share this journey.

Thanks for commenting on my blog about mockingbird hill. My mom did sing a lot when I was growing up. She was a positive force in my life. When I was young I lived in Texas before we moved to California. Have a lot of mockingbirds in Texas and California. You probably have them in Oregon too.

Carol; Thank you for being such a great friend. I will try what you suggested. I should have addressed this childhood issues earlier. I need to be more positive with myself. I need to prove to myself and others that I can do this. Hugs Pat
