HEALTH AND VITALITY AT AGE 60 AND BEYOND

I joined SparkPeople on May 25, 2009 to get motivated to eat healthier and get back into an exercise routine. To my surprise I began to lose weight. I did great and was down 29 lbs. until Labor Day 2009 when I decided to let loose and eat all the things I hadn't tasted for a few months. I was only going to do this for the weekend and then back to eating healthy and exercising again. BUT GETTING BACK TO MY HEALTHY LIFESTYLE DIDN'T QUITE HAPPEN.

I gained back 19 of the 29 lbs. I shed last spring/summer. I've been back to Spark People since early March, and I'm struggling, but I'm determined to successfully complete this voyage to a healthier lifestyle and a new me.

This website is providing the tools and motivation I need to reach my goals. Thank you SPARKGUY for this free and wonderful forum.

My Goals:
My goals are to lose weight and be more active and healthy.

8/2/09 EEEEHAAA! I achieved my first (big) goal!!!!!!! I weighed in at 199 lbs. today.

My Program:
1. Use the nutrition tracker daily and stay within my goals.

2. Walk daily for 33 minutes and increase time a little each day.

3. Carry a step counter in my pocket all day. My goal is to walk 5000 steps each day and increase to 10,000 daily over time.

4. Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.

5. Get 7 hours of sleep each night.

Other Information:
My name is Linda. I'm a wife/mother/grandmother/greatgrandmother and have lived in Pennsylvania all of my life. I have 2 sons, 6 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, cooking, listening to jazz music and eating good italian food. I retired from state employment after a 37 year career. My husband and I own and operate residential rental properties. We will be giving this up in a couple of years so that we can completely enjoy our freedom in retirement.

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too

Hugs

Niki
