wanting to be less than I am

I am 70 years old with many health problems. Unless I do something now I won't get much older and I want to see my grandkids raised and successful. I am very sedentary right now, but not by choice.

Other Information:
I love to quilt. I love to read, not much of a TV fan. I really depend on my internet friends as I can not get out much. I have 5 children, one of whom resides in Heaven, anywhere from 8 to 14 grandchildren, depending on who is married to whom at the time and I have 1 furkid, a 10 year old Golden Retriever named Lady Margaret of York (Maggie to us). She is a wussie but she would love you to death and craves attention. I have held many jobs but the main ones were professional cook, certified home health aide, and teacher (I went back to college at age 50). I am not a worrier because....my God is an awesome God and HE is in control.

Hi, Carol.

So glad you're one of us now. Welcome! It's never too late to try and make your life better. Just take it one day at a time. Sparkpeople is great. My biggest problem is knowing what foods to put together, but with Sparkpeople and their premade menus, I've found it very easy. I will stick to their menus until I'm certain I can do this on my own. You're going to do great!! emoticon
Let us know how you're doing or if you need help. We're here for you, always!!

Hey, Carol, welcome to Spark People! Looks like you got yourself started off okay on the site. Are you particularly lost about what to eat, how to track or what? In any case, I'd say start simple and start very small: just log everything you eat. Use the trackers if you can figure them out or just write it all down. If that seems too easy, then try smaller portions or 10 minutes of exercise, like marching in place. Or just ask yourself to read through some articles about health and fitness on the site. Spend time getting familiar with the place before you set any goals! The basic Spark approach is small changes, very gradually put in place, with rewards all along the way for success. Not big, sweeping change all at once! So keep it simple, sweetheart! You can do this!
