I'm 70 and live in the Midwest most of the year, but usually head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 10 and 7, and a grown DGD who just became mommy to our first great-grandchild, a girl!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have osteoarthritis and hauling all this weight around ...
I'm 70 and live in the Midwest most of the year, but usually head to south Texas or Arizona for some of the cold winter months. We have 3 living children, 2 DGSs, ages 10 and 7, and a grown DGD who just became mommy to our first great-grandchild, a girl!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have osteoarthritis and hauling all this weight around is not good for that. So, in the interest of preserving my replaced hips, enjoying life, and above all, being healthier, I'm working on improving my general health and becoming more active--would love to keep up with the grandsons for a very long time! SparkPeople is giving me that chance!

My Goals:
My overall goals are simple. I want to lead a healthier lifestyle that helps me to have the energy and enthusiasm to be active and happy. In order to do this, I will take off the excess pounds by eating healthier and exercising.

My Program:
My program is also simple:
1. I will eat within my daily calorie range and abstain from evening eating and snacking.
2. I will eat at least 5-7 freggies each day.
3. I will eat 3+ dairy products each day.
4. I will eat 2-3 protein servings daily.
5. The remainder of my calories will come in the form of carbs and occasional treats.
6. I will include strength and stretching exercises in my daily routine.
7. Every other day I will walk outside or work on the WATP video to increase my stamina and time. I will also use my pedaler on off walking days.
8. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 5% Summer Challenge, as well as my team activities.


Other Information:
I love to read, do genealogy, sew and spend time outdoors. We garden a lot and I can and freeze the produce. We spend as much time as we can with the grandsons.

Hi, Jeanie! I use Google Chrome all the time, too. Eileen showed me how to install it when she was here. I may have to try that AdBlocker thing because I have SO many pop ups on this site! Even sometimes when clicking Spark Mail, something you think is innocent, gets pop ups at times! I hope you can get something settled at the Homeowner's Association. Hope they water your grass! Other than that, do you like your new place? I can't wait to get into ours. Matt is working on taping and bedding drywall in the living room and utility room, so he cleaned it out so it is wide open, I really LIKE it! emoticon

Jeanie: Your peaches sound really good, just wanted to say Hello, I'm so glad to see you chating with us a little more. Hope you are getting all settled into your new home by now, It will be winter before you know it and you'll be off to Texas. Guess I better get off this computer and get ready for church.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK AHEAD. CJ from OK. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
