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.

Hope all goes well with your dental appt. and you get to your mom's soon. We found out Annie (SIL) is not able to have surg. She went to Rochester and they have sent her home with new info of mets to the liver. Very grim report.We are hoping to not have to head home before we plan but it doesn't sound good. We are praying for her comfort now and hoping she makes it until her 1st grandchild is born in June.

So glad you had a safe trip home yesterday. We may be coming home earlier than thought as our much younger sister in law has been taken to the twin cities via ambulance with a bowel obstruction due to colon cancer. She is doing very poorly and her DH (Roger's youngest brother.) We can only pray for her right now as it doesn't sound good at all.
God bless and hope to meet some day soon.

If you were on I44 and went through Tulsa, you passed it right before you got to Miami. If you saw a sign for a 'Buffalo Ranch' that was the place.

When I lived there, I actually lived outside of Afton at a place called Monkey Island where my ex worked at a resort called Shangri La emoticon
