Oregon Grandma

I am 69 years old now 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 more than 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 ...
I am 69 years old now 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 more than 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 9 months has really thrown a monkey wrench into that program. Now that our temporarily live-in family members have moved out to their own place we can get our schedules and eating patterns back into a healthier routine.

An old song says that only the good die young, and I figure with my youthful history I'm going to be around 200-250 years, so I better take care of this body so I can enjoy those extra years!

Fitness Minutes: 17,340

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 have transitioned 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.

The "former employer" is not the one that let me go, it is the one previous to that, the one I left in Lincoln when I got my PTA job in Iowa.

Thanks for the encouragement regarding my son. This particular school system seems to be particularly concerned with attendance, even though his lowest grade is a C. He missed most of his days first semester, and yesterday was one of those cases where I didn't think he was truly sick, but at 14, 5'10" and probably around 180 pounds, I can no longer physically just put him in the car.

This too, shall pass - I think it is the Middle School equivalent of "senioritis."

Thank you dear friend for your support. I am hoping the new meds will perk me up a little. Been listening to music that calms my soul and gives me inner peace. "Aquarius/Let the sun shine in" by 5th Dimension; " Candles in the rain" by Melanie. "You've got a friend" by Carol King and others. I will be OK.
