Hi thanks for stopping by .....

In my 20's 30's 40's and early 50's I never once exercised!!!Sparkpeople changed my life. I had been bedridden for 12 years due to illness, in turn which lead to an increase of weight by 60 lbs. I needed to get back on my feet and healthy..... googled weight loss program and here my journey began.

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidently injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery which took 2 years. Gained back 20 lbs. (ouch) I'm slowly getting back on track having l 've lost 8.6 lbs. since surgery in April. I'm 62 now and it seems so much more difficult to loose the weight....... sooooooo S L O W !

I will conquer this, I refuse to give up ........ I'm stubborn :D
