Guess it' s time to update my info. When I started Spark I was just about to turn 60 and weighed 190 or so. I'm now 62 and holding pretty steady between 163 & 165. Haven't reached my goal of 155 but did get down to 157 for almost a month. Of course, I haven't been doing all the things I did when I first started. Still need to work on turning those things into daily habits but I am a "work in progress" and in much better condition physically than I was when I started. Taking it day by day ...

So you know Dayton! I moved there from Virginia in 1992 and lived in a northern suburb, Englewood, for about eight years before I moved 30 miles north into the boonies to marry my husband. It's a pretty nice town but it's been totally devastated by the closing of the GM plants. The downtown is like a ghost town at night unless there's something special going on at the Victoria Theater. Did you ever go there? I loved taking my daughter to see The Nutcracker when she was little.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. We have a lot in common, don't we! So was it crazy signing up for Medicare? Oh wait, I just realized, you're probably staying on your company insurance. What is your job? I think you might have mentioned it a long while back but I can't remember.

No, at this point I'm losing weight because I'm afraid I'm going to have a stroke and end up being wheeled around the nursing home. Major motivator!
