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. 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'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. 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.
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 complete my PT exercises daily.
7. I will include strength and stretching exercises in my daily routine.
8. Three times a week I will work on the WATP video, working to increase my stamina and time with it.
9. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 5% Spring Challenge, as well as my team activities.
10. For greater accountability I have made my trackers public.

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.

The clothing exchange was a success again. A good turnout, with people bringing and finding good things to wear. Next will be in about six months.

Breakfast turned out to be what I call a make-believe omelet because I use Papetti Quick Eggs in the yellow container. They are egg whites with coloring and seasoned so that, when scrambled or whichever, taste enough like eggs. I sauteed a couple of big handsful of fresh baby spinach in olive oil. When nicely wilted, poured in 1/2 cup of the egg and sprinkled with some oregano. When mostly set, I crumbled some low-fat feta on top. Sometimes I saute some finely chopped onion and sliced, cherry tomatoes with the spinach.

That turned out to take longer to tell than I'd intended!
