I was born in April 1960. I recall a lot of playing outside, both summer and winter. I was always very thin as a child. Once I hit 35-40 I had a hard time losing weight and it only got harder. I wish I had kept on top of it more so I wouldn't be in this spot now. But I am grateful to have found this community!

I was born in September 1960. Top song was "Now or Never" by The King, Elvis Presley. Sure is appropriate for me!

April 1960, I looked up the # 1 song and it was the theme from "A Summer Place." Our family enjoyed looking their song up, we had a emoticon lot of fun!

December 1960 here... when the #1 song in the USA was "Are You Lonesome Tonight " by Elvis Presley.

Losing weight sure got harder as I got older! But I just never give up.

I'm glad to see somebody keeping the 1960 thread going. My two cents: Boy it's harder to lose weight the older I get.

Born in January. Just getting started here, but I already love Sparkpeople. I had done a weight management program at our local hospital and was dreading the end. This has provided a way of accountability and more that I need. I am working on blood sugar numbers and a lot of weight to lose. God has revealed to me this is a process so I am trying to be patient with myself. emoticon It is not really day one but each day is a new day and God's mercy and grace are new every morning!

P.S. John,
I am not going to hold it against you about being a Sox fan, but go Yankees.

Hi Dee & John,
Dee, both my wife and I have lost someone to cancer. I hate to say it, but I think the majority of us have. It's a shame.

John, I feel your pain. I married my high school sweetheart. Married 26 years, lived together 30 years had two wonderful kids. It was not easy to move on, but I did and I'm a better person for it. I now remarried to a great gal and we are determined to get healthy. I'm retired and she retires in two years. We plan on traveling and having fun together for next 30 years.

Thanks for writing !!! I enjoy Milwaukee, yes the quest has begun to look as good as we can. I'm trying to walk 3 miles a day. This is a tough task living in the midwest. Let's do this!!!

Thanks again for writing.

Kindest Regards,

Hello John,

I too was born in 1960. I'm on the quest to become the very best. I have about 30 lbs I want to lose, and this site is awesome. I live in Milwaukee and I'm looking forward to start mall walking and walking at home.
Good luck to you.
