Colorado Grandma

I am now 68 years old and still fighting the battle of the bulge. But at least I'm still fighting and SparkPeople has been helping me for about a year and a half. I still have the same 22-25 pounds to lose having lost and then gained and then lost a few again. I'm have switched to the Atkins program. It has helped me break the plateaus and I feel much better without the cravings. It will be interesting to see what this year brings.

Pretty soon I will change the page title to ...

Pretty soon I will change the page title to "Oregon Grandma" as we will be moving. It will also be interesting to see what the change in lifestyle does to my body and my program.

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!


Current Status:
WESTERNSAGE is looking forward to a weekend working on the house again - too many days running necessary errands have slowed down progress on getting settled.

Fitness Minutes: 14,567

My Goals:
My goals are simple: get my weight down about 35 pounds and my clothes down about 2-3 sizes. My AHA moment came when I realized1 more pound would put me in the BMI obese category, and my target is to get into the healthy range.

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. The biggest challenge has been to get my husband to realize I am actually doing this, not just talking about it. He is retired and has become the family cook, so his cooperation is vital.

Personal Information:
I live in Colorado, supposedly the thinnest state, and supposedly one of the healthiest states in the Union. I want to be part of that success, not one of the detractors who might ruin that rating.

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

A poltergeist, eh? Hopefully, it's one that will return your items.

Wanted to thank you for stopping by and commenting on my craving a shake. In the end all the support I received helped me see how much I had fixated on that craving. I went to my sister's had dinner with her and a couple of cookies for dessert. No shake. I just needed to get focused on something else. WOO HOO for me not giving in to the craving. Hugs to you for your support. I hope you soon get your furniture in and finally get settled. What is this about a poltergeist in your house. I hope it is a friendly one. Pat
