This month marks a number of milestones for me. My last birthday of my 50's - yes, I'm in my 60th year. My oldest son is getting married and my youngest son just moved into his first off-campus apartment. It's bittersweet.

This past year has not been my best health and nutrition-wise. I've seen the scale go up and down in an 8-10 pound range, and now I'm close to the top and 20 -25 pounds from where I want to be. New goals coming soon...

SparkPoints: 11,734

Fitness Minutes: 491

My Goals:
I want to lose 15-20 pounds eating a healthy, well-balanced diet and re-establish a regular exercise routine,

My Program:
Ready to commit to regular moderate cardio and resistance training, and return to portion control. Avoiding the white stuff as much as possible! Upping the fresh fruits and veggies.

Personal Information:
I live in San Carlos, CA, just about half-way between San Jose and San Francisco. I am married with two sons,18 and 21.

Other Information:
I left a social work career when I had my first child at age 37. I have done massive amounts of volunteer work since then and a four-year stint as a school librarian. I don't have the emotional stamina for social work any more, but feel I need to be more productive and continue to toy with the idea of returning to the work force though I have no idea in what capacity. And of course, this isn't the greatest time to be looking for a job!

Good morning, Chris! For an invitation to our private team, try going to the top menu bar and hold your cursor on 'Trackers.' Then go down to Spark Mail. The invitation is probably there. If you have more trouble, let me know!

Hi Chris- have you any interest in getting our old group back together for sharing and encouragement? Kat said she is, and I'm wondering if we'd have enough participants to make up a team.

Hi Chris, thanks for your note! I am back in Santa Fe and life is a bit, ummm, intense for me right now. Richard isn't working because he is between contracts so I am substitute teaching full-time. I don't mind doing it (I have always liked making my own money) but I am having problems getting priorities straight. Like exercising and staying away from chocolate and Diet Coke and all that. I need to settle in because I too have gained 10 pounds this year. And I am uncomfortable with the spare tire that those 10 pounds have turned into. Not giving up though! Just need, as Kat used to say, to find the click!
