HeyJude

Retired and having a wonderful time.

I started with SparkPeople with the thought that I'd just use it to help me stay healthy. In the latter part of 2006, I had gone from 161 to 147 pounds and was able to keep it off. I was 70, 5'4" and had no significant health problems.

After using some of the tools and reading articles and message-board replies, I realized I was still overweight, didn't drink enough water, and didn't exercise enough....so I set up some goals. ...

I started with SparkPeople with the thought that I'd just use it to help me stay healthy. In the latter part of 2006, I had gone from 161 to 147 pounds and was able to keep it off. I was 70, 5'4" and had no significant health problems.

After using some of the tools and reading articles and message-board replies, I realized I was still overweight, didn't drink enough water, and didn't exercise enough....so I set up some goals.

Happy to report that after 5 months (July 26, 2008) , I reached my goal weight of 125 and was motivated to carefully maintain it. Average calories consumed per day was 1379.

The joy of my life was helping to raise 5 wonderful kids (they're all in their 50's now) and being a part of their lives as they've matured and had families of their own.

Retirement is great. I was such a workaholic, I never thought I could enjoy being free, but I feel like a kid again! I have many projects I'm working on....things I wanted to do for years and just never had the time. Every day is busy.

After twelve months of maintenance (July 26, 2009) weight was 118.0, average weight per day 118.1, average calories consumed per day 2014, and average cardio minutes per week 235.

In August 2009 some situations in my life changed and I had to start eating out. This led to weight gain. By July 2010, I was up to 129. I set a new goal for 123 and achieved it within 6 weeks. I have maintained at between 121 and 125 since then..
