My ups and downs

I am an active 74 year old. I love to travel with my husband and our friends. We try to go someplace interesting every year. Last year we went on a Mediterranean Cruise and had a great time. We also enjoy dancing and go square dancing and round dancing every week. Both of us enjoy the dance classes we take. It is fun and good exercise.

We also enjoy dancing and go square dancing and round dancing every week. Both of us enjoy the dance classes we take. It is fun and good exercise.
I have been working to lose weight for several years. I gain some and then lose some and then gain it again. I am tired of losing the same pounds over and over. This time I plan to keep it off by weighing myself regularly and not allowing the scale to creep up. I would like to say this is working, but I still have a hard time staying with my plans when I am away from home. I know this has to be a lifetime change and I am working on it, but I am not perfect on this yet. At least I have made several baby steps in the right direction of my goal.
Thanks to all my Spark Friends for their continued support and encouragement.

Hello! Thanks for the comment on my page. I love Mercedes Lackey! Talia's story was the best. I've re-read it several times. The mage series was also good. Both are favorites on my shelves. I always get laughs and a good cry when I read them. Happy Saturday! emoticon

My dad is the same way with some of his stuff. I think that's where I got the "keep it" issue. He has some of his college Engineering books from the 60's because they're "still relevant" now. He also has a workshop that he keeps random nails and there's a couple of Apple II computers sitting there. I could donate his stuff to a museum!

I'm taking a Spark break for a while, but I'll be back soon. Work is a little overwhelming, with the travel, etc. Keep doing great and I'll be in touch again when I can.
