I'm 70 and live in the Midwest most of the year, but usually head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 10 and 7, and a grown DGD who just became 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 ...
I'm 70 and live in the Midwest most of the year, but usually head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 10 and 7, and a grown DGD who just became 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+ dairy products each day.
4. I will eat 2-3 protein servings daily.
5. The remainder of my calories will come in the form of carbs and occasional treats.
6. I will include strength and stretching exercises in my daily routine.
7. Every other day I will walk outside or work on the WATP video to increase my stamina and time. I will also use my pedaler on off walking days.
8. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 5% Summer Challenge, as well as my team activities.


Other Information:
I love to read, do genealogy, sew and spend time outdoors. We garden a lot and I can and freeze the produce. We spend as much time as we can with the grandsons.

The next time you're stressed~~~
take a step back
inhale and laugh!
Remember who you are
and why you are here~~~
You're never given anything
in this world that you can't handle.
Be strong,
Be flexible,
Love yourself,
Love others!
Always remember
keep moving forward!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Give yourself some credit!
For how much you do and how hard you work.
For how deeply you care and how strong you can be.
For how often you put someone else first, and for how little you expect in return.
All good things you think about other people are true of you.
So pay yourself a compliment, too.

Happy memories are gifts that can be unwrapped again and again......Knowing what you want is a giant step towards getting it!

Jeannie thank you so much for taking the time to wish me a happy birthday...FYI I had a great day even through I was under the weather a bit.

I do have a question your background page...is that lavender fields?...I have not seen anything like that in the states. Beautiful picture.
