Hey, Smokey803! I thought I was the oldest Sparker! Guess I'll have to step down into second place. I was born in 1939.

I wonder if we really are the oldest two people in SP world? emoticon emoticon

Does being born in 1935 make me the oldest? What do I win?
You know, of course, that 76 is the new 50. The best thing about this site, to me, is the calorie counter. It makes my life so much easier and as a result, I'm more conscious of what's going in my mouth. Now I realize how inconsistent I was.
The other best thing is the other members. Everyone is helpful in some way. With encouraging words, with jokes, with stories of their own successes.
These ARE the golden years!

Hello - I was born in 1943 and have belonged to SP since January, 2011. So far I've lost 27 lbs., plus another 12 I lost on my own before joining SP. I've just revised my goal from 150 to 140 lbs.(making me 15 lbs. from goal). I hope to reach 140 by January 20, 2012, my 1 year Sparkiversary. I really believe in this program, and I wish you every success in your weight management journey.

I'm new and am hoping to take off 18 pounds; the food and exercise tracking are exciting
tools, plus I'm so encouraged by the success stories on SparkPeople. What a blessing to
find this site!
