Hi am now 62 years old and feeling it. I am starting over again with Spark People after being away for a couple of years. I want to lose the weight I have gained back and kick start living again....

I am a horseback riding instructor with my own barn in Scottsville NY. Mother of 2 older girls. One is married with a son and the other was married on June 21 of 2009 . She just had her first son 5/9/11.

In 2009 I had finally decided that I need a lifestyle change, not just a diet.

I gained lots back and now need to change my life again. Hope my depression doesn't get in the way. :(

    Hello! Thank you so much for the SparkGoodie and your kind words. I really appreciate it! (and wow! We're practically neighbors! How often can you say that on the internet? heh)

    Best of luck to you!

    Hi! I hope that you don't mind that I added you as friend. We're neighbors...sort of...I live in Macedon now, originally from Rochester and Gates.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! It's nice to hear that others can sympathize.

    You have come such a long way, you must be so proud! I have no advice on losing the last 10, unfortunately I've been going back and forth with this middle 10 since March! Ugh. Time to step up my game. (and by game, I mean exercise!)

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. :) Looking at your page, I realize we are sort of neighbors! I'm down near Canandaigua. Good luck with your streak...it's got to start becoming automatic eventually, right? :)
