I am a grandma that wasn't keep up with her grandsons because of bad knees and too much weight. I still need to lose more weight but I am more able to keep up with the boys. One is 10 and the other is 8. They are a handful but I really enjoy them.

My Goals:
I've heard we will have combined 3 class reunion next year so maybe I can get down to below 170 by then.

I would like to be below 170 before my 40th class reunion sometime in the summer of 2012. I'm not sure when so I need to be prepared. We didn't have a reunion this year so I was saved by that fact.

I really hope to be below 180 by the Randol Family Reunion July 29th. I made it with plenty of time to spare.

To lose 3 pounds by my Sparkpeople Anniversary. I will be at about 180 pounds if I do.

Didn't quite make this one either.

Lose at least 20 pounds before my birthday in April. I didn't quuite make it. I was 1.5 pounds away, but I'm happy I got that close.

I would like to be able to wear clothes that aren't XL or XXL Most every thing I wear now is Large. Hooray.

I have gotten out of the XXL clothes and depending on the style I can wear mostly Large. I guess I need to create a new goal.

My Program:
I've been using the Sparkpeople site since mid June 2010. I it has made me more aware of the foods I eat and helped me make better food choices. I am now walking almost every day, something I haven't done in years. Hopefully, I can sustain theses good health habits for the long term.

Personal Information:
I have been happily married to my best friend and motivator for 40 years. I'm a moomaw (grandma) to two terrific little boys whom I get to see a lot of, We all live in southwestern Colorado. I have worked at the same job for over 15 years. I've struggled with my weight most of my life but hopefully I've finally found my secret.

Other Information:
I like to crochet and sew. My husband and I have recently started square dancing again after almost 35 years. We are having a great time and getting lots of good excercise in the process.

    Hey thanks for liking my progress... LOVE my Fitbit. I hemmed and hawed over getting one, but now so happy I did. Now if I could get it to walk FOR me I would be all set!! How are you? Are you adjusting to your 'new normal'?? I think of you often and wondering how you are keeping your days full. I am sure at this time of year you might be thinking about how lucky you will be to NOT GO THROUGH another year end! Someone else can worry about that now (as long as you get your W2 :) )
    Be well, talk soon. J

    Didn't realize you had retired. Sounds like you are keeping busy though. I use to can apple pie filling but can't find the recipe.

    emoticon for your comment. Like my Mom said probably some druggie has enough $$$ for his next fix now. The only way the would get them is if they pawn the rings.
