It's time to be healthy and to have more energy, and to be kind to my knees. I'm 56 years old and I've been skinny most of my life--until I hit the 40's, then it all piled on. Spark People is so motivating to me! Now I'm working out daily, lifting weights, doing exercise DVDs, and logging my meals. I feel so much better living this way.
