I am 70 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. We are getting used to living in a new home in a new state yet in some ways it is still in the adjustment stages. I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for more than three years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost it few again. Surgery last year seems to have derailed my body's ability to lose weight. Medical people tell me it can take a year to recover. UGH! Meanwhile I plan to keep Sparking and tracking and exercising and drinking water.

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: 22,835

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.

    Hi Carol, I was so glad when the doctor said his eyes were stable again. We are so thankful for the VA and the care he gets, also thankful his eyes are improving. Hope you had a very good day and that nothing too serious is wrong with your DH's computer.

    Hugs,

    Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for this new week. The juicing went very well, dropped 3 lbs. This week I am going to do 1-2 juices daily and eat 1-2 meals, will try and keep some plant based and some will include salads and meat such as salmon and chicken and we'll see how it goes.

    Hugs,

    Hi Carol, just stopping to check on you. I see you on friend status. Glad to see you doing well on your journey. I have been doing a lot better. Moving better, eating better, and not as depressed. Spring/summer is upon us. More time to get out. Hugs.
