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 11 and 8, 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 11 and 8, 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+ protein servings daily, including at least one dairy.
4. The remainder of my calories will come in the form of carbs.
5. I will include strength and stretching exercises in my daily routine.
6. I will participate in the Silver Sneakers and water exercise programs at the Y 3-5 times each week.
7. I will continue to exercise a minimum of 10 min/day on days with no scheduled activities.
8. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 5% Fall Challenge, as well as my team activities.


Other Information:
I love to read, do genealogy, spend as much time as possible with our grandsons and new great-granddaughter. We just moved to a condo last spring, so we're adjusting to having no outdoor responsibilities. As a former gardener, I'm missing that.

I just love the fall background...makes it so homey. I face the woods (which they are threatening to tear down for a stupid road), but the leaves' haven't changed yet so I still get to see green. It won't be long before they turn color though.

Thanks for all you do for the team. You always make me feel welcome on the team chat and I really (really) appreciate that. Other teams I have tried where people know each other totally ignore you except for say, maybe, one person. I don't understand that. Anyway, most of the people on this team acknowledge youwhether you are new or not and its a good feeling.

I hope you and Richard are getting to feel better?

Going to have lunch with a friend today. See you around.

best
barbara

Hi Jeanne!

I have lost track this yr. as to where we are going and where we have been :-)D We are going to be working our way into TX. as long as we are this far now. But we don't know where we are going when we head out on Sun. It's kind of where ever the breeze may take us. We sometimes love to travel like gypsies and get in the truck then choose and road to follow. Not sure when we will arrive in the Valley right now.

Take care and enjoy the week!! emoticon emoticon
