    Working on my health and La Jolla – my goal is to be healthier, lighter and stronger and more energetic.
  • I am soon to be 50. I live in Pryor, OK, have 2 grand kids & have been medically retired. Trying to stay active & lose some weight.
    Any suggestions or ideas would be great!
  • I've been on Spark since June. Decided to take this challenge in hopes of learning how to use every resource this site has to offer.
  • I have been around since 2008 and I am back trying to get motivated again.

    I am a new member. I am 75 years old. I have 40-50 lbs to lose. I suffer with back pain and a knee pain. I have lost and gained weight many times over the years. WW always helped but always gained back. Why pay their fees when I can do the same thing here. I need accountability. So please help me with your encouragement blogs. Thank you. Nancy
  • Thanks for the good information. Will be checking out the Message Boards.
  • Hi everyone- this looks like a great resource!

    Every day presents its challenges, but if you screw up one day, just try again the next. I was doing SO well all day yesterday, but got invited to a happy hour, which led to drinks and fried appetizer...but you know what? It was still better that all day I'd had high protein, low or no carb, low calorie choices. I still blew my calorie count, but have to think what it WOULD have been had I not been "good" the rest of the day! And, making me more determined to be good today.
  • Glad to be back. Different user name, same person. Have a great day everyone.

    I am thankful today that I put myself to task, did my morning walk and stretch.
  • Day 5 and I'm already behind with days 3 & 4 due to being busy over the weekend, and losing the internet just when I was ready to use it! Going ok so far, slow and steady, but feeling a bit down for no apparent reason. Hopefully the sun will come out and my clothes will start to feel looser and I'll start to fell more "UP".

    Been on here for about 3 weeks now. Due to some medical tests coming back not so great I decided to make major changes to my food choices. I cut out almost all alcohol, dairy and gluten. I've lowered my test scores back to normal and dropped 14 lbs. I feel so much better and can't wait to see what continued positive changes I will see. What has really helped me first of all is the support of my family. I have also been finding great paleo recipes that are great tasting on the internet.
  • Good article. I find all this support is so helpful to keep me going.
