I am 71 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. We are are feeling more at home in our new state. 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 again. Surgery a couple years ago seems to have derailed my body's ability to lose weight. I have finally lost a couple pounds and plan to keep Sparking and tracking and exercising and drinking water. Hopefully the trend will continue.

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!

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 will continue to get onto SP everyday and to track my calories when I do. Weighing and measuring portions has become a way of life. We are readjusting our eating habits to accommodate my husband's various needs. As his cancer treatment has progressed his weight has continued to drop, so I need to get him to eat as much as possible - but I must not eat with him! It's a balancing act I'm still struggling with.

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.

    Thank you for the goodie. Your support is very appreciate. As you know I do not have any children so my fur babies are special to me. I have not heard anything from the vet. Which is OK. She told me she would not call unless 1/2 Pint got weaker. We will know more on Monday when her lab work is repeated. I am hoping the treatments will help here. I know you will be having a busy stressful week ahead. My thoughts are with you and hubby. Hugs.

    I seldom have time to give to glancing at comments made on the blogs of others. However, when I do so with Lynda's blog, there are a few folks that I look for in particularly = yours among that number.

    As for your comment, "Ah, the joys of appreciating all people." = that is my take, too. emoticon

    God bless you with His best, Carol!
