Hello, my name is Pamela. I'm 60 years old, and I live in Tucson, Arizona. I'm an "empty nester" with two grown children, one grandchild, one dog, and three cats. I try to lead a healthy and well-balance life. I enjoy walking, swimming, yoga, and cycling.

Hello, my name is Pamela. I'm 60 years old, and I live in Tucson, Arizona. I'm an "empty nester" with two grown children, one grandchild, one dog, and three cats. I try to lead a healthy and well-balance life. I enjoy walking, swimming, yoga, and cycling.

After I turned 40, I started steadily gaining weight, even though I had never been overweight in my life. I gained about 50 pounds during this time-- due to stress, sedintary lifestyle, and menopause. In 2001, I made a committment to change my lifestyle habits. This has led to gradual weight loss, muscle gain, and increased vitality. I'm in better physical shape now than I was when I was 20!

I joined Spark People on June 12, 2006 and have found it very helpful. The resources and ideas are inspiring. Good luck to all of us. By December 2008, I weighed 147 pounds and was wearing size 10 pants (achieving one of my goals).

Unfortunately, multiple injuries in 2009 forced me to stop my intense exercise program for six months and give my body time to recuperate. Of course, this resulted in gaining 11 pounds-- bummer.

In November 2012, I married my new husband, Jim. When I saw my back flab in the wedding video, I said, "ACK! Back to Spark and the daily workouts."

Now I'm back on Spark and back to my workouts. The size 10 pants are a bit too tight, but I'm pursuing my goals with vigor.
