I'm 70+ and live in the Midwest most of the year, but often head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 11 and 8, and a grown DGD who is mommy to our first great-grandchild, a girl!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have osteoarthritis and hauling all this weight around is not good ...
I'm 70+ and live in the Midwest most of the year, but often head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 11 and 8, and a grown DGD who is mommy to our first great-grandchild, a girl!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have osteoarthritis and hauling all this weight around is not good for that. So, in the interest of preserving my replaced hips, enjoying life, and above all, being healthier, I'm working on improving my general health and becoming more active--would love to keep up with the grandsons for a very long time! SparkPeople is giving me that chance!

My Goals:
My overall goals are simple. I want to lead a healthier lifestyle that helps me to have the energy and enthusiasm to be active and happy. In order to do this, I will take off the excess pounds by eating healthier and exercising.

My Program:
My program is also simple:
1. I will eat within my daily calorie range and abstain from evening eating and snacking.
2. I will eat at least 5-7 freggies each day.
3. I will eat 3+ protein servings daily, including at least two dairy.
4. The remainder of my calories will come in the form of carbs.
5. I will include strength and stretching exercises in my daily routine.
6. I will participate in the Silver Sneakers and water exercise programs at the Y 3-5 times each week.
7. I will continue to exercise a minimum of 10 min/day on days with no scheduled activities.
8. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 5% Spring Challenge, as well as my team activities.


Other Information:
I love to read, do genealogy, spend as much time as possible with our grandsons and new great-granddaughter. We just moved to a condo last spring, so we're adjusting to having no outdoor responsibilities. We've rented a city garden spot for this year and we're looking forward to having plenty of fresh veggies!

Wooohoo u got back to the POOL!! YEAH!!! Thrilled for you gal!!!

YES, it's. Not easy to get back to it. Our first day back we stayed for only 1/2hour. Now we do usually 75 minutes, today we did 60 mins. I was still hurting some from the fall. This is a very, very busy week!!!! I need to pace myself.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is meeting at night at the. Kingdom Hall from 6:30- 8:10, but we usually stay and chat with friends til 8:45 ish.

Wednesday is the angioplasty,,,,, hopefully they will correct the aneurysm by coiling it. No hope!!!! Thursday I can finally relax, Friday we may go swimming, if not I'll most likely go for a walk. Than back to the. Kingdom. Hall it's the night to observe the death of Jesus. That'll knock me off my feet with all of this.

Hope you are. LOVING being back in the Kennel among many of us who love ya!!!!

The apartment-building explosion and fire was seven blocks away. I don't doubt reports that the heavy smoke blew quite a distance away, as I had a strong smell of it in my place.

So many terrible things happening at once. Let's think good thoughts for those who are affected.
