Hello. Wanted to introduce myself and tell you about my success with Sparkpeople. I am a 50-year-old woman, 5'3", 126 pounds. I had a rather difficult back surgery in October of last year and I began putting on weight rapidly. I was at 143 pounds back in March. Due to not being able to get around well, I could not walk very far or move much. I cannot do the treadmill, most weight machines at the gym, and walking is limited. I found Sparkpeople March 15 and I have been recording my weight, exercising, drinking water, and being consistent, and using SP every day. Basically, I found two forms of exercise that I can do well (The Nustep.) a recumbent cardio stepper machine and water aerobics. I then started lifting light weights and doing seated aerobics and lifting weights while seated. I have lost 17 pounds and I am just a pound away from my goal weight of 125. I will continue with SP for a long time to come for maintenance and encouragement and to set other goals for myself, and I want to tell others to keep doing their routines and staying true to their self and their goals they set and wish everybody happy weight loss!
