Kathy's Journeys

My life has been an interesting journey so far. If I had a lot of time and space, it would make an interesting story, but since that's not the case, I will make it short.
I am a 71 year old wife, mother, grandmother, sister and daughter. My name is Kathy, my husband and I sometimest our daughters' 3 children while she works. I have multiple problems which make it difficult to lose weight. I'm hoping this part of my journey will be productive and help me to gain some new friends. ...

I have multiple problems which make it difficult to lose weight. I'm hoping this part of my journey will be productive and help me to gain some new friends. I've included a picture of myself and a couple pictures of some of my grandchildren....we now only babysit occasionally as the kids are now 15, 12, and 19.

After several times of starting over...I have decided to embark on this journey again. My husband has found a program called " EAT TO LIVE" and has been shopping and cooking to implement this program...so here we go again.

Thank you so much for the welcome to the group. I was using Spark for awhile a year or so ago and then ran into stumbling blocks that ended up with me pulling back for quite awhile. However, I realize I cannot do this alone so started with my meal planning for the week yesterday and saw this group and thought I would love to meet some of you and receive your support as well as provide support to others.

Good luck to you on your journey and again, thank you for the welcome.

Enjoyed reading your Spark page and would like to learn more about you. I'm also an Oregonian - actually just a few miles down the road from you in McMinnville.

I'm forever struggling to lose 10plus pounds. Seems I keep regaining it! So it's spring (finally!) and I searching for new enthusiasm. I've been working on the same 10 lbs. since July. Hopefully getting outside and doing some work in the yard will help. emoticon

Thank you for welcoming me to the group. I'm hoping that tracking my food and keeping track of what I eat and how I exercise will get me motivated to lose! I am 60 years old and was diagnosed with diabetes last year. I'm hoping that if I can get my weight under control I can stop meds for diabetes and high blood pressure. This probably should have been posted to the group website, but I'm new and will soon get the hang of it. Good Luck on your journey.
