It is Time

My name is Gisela and I am 61 years old. As most of us have, I've struggled with weight most of my life and have tried most diets. In fact, five years ago I started using Sparkpeople and lost 30 pounds. Well they're back and I have added a few more. It is time again to get serious, so here I am.
My husband and I are both retired and we love to travel. We are RVers and have became full time RVers. We love all forms of travel, RVing and trips to Europe. We love meeting new people ...

My husband and I are both retired and we love to travel. We are RVers and have became full time RVers. We love all forms of travel, RVing and trips to Europe. We love meeting new people and catching up with old friends. These activities have reeked havoc with my weight. So here's to a new year and better health.

I have been encouraged by the success of so many on this web site. I have watched as friends from this site have achieved their goals and this really inspires me.

Hey there gal, how in the world are you doing? You were on my mind and I have not been by in ages so thought I should refriend you and check up. So give me a shout when you get a free minute.
Are you off the road now and back to the cabin?

Love, Nims

It's always SOOO great to hear from you. It's been a long time since I've been on SP. Seems I drifted away from it from lack of time. My new job is going very well, but extremely busy. It's 2 people running an entire center... me....and my boss. Good guy though and that makes a world of difference. I seldom leave my office, however, and that has added back my weight to 162. I just don't have the heart to put it on my ticker...... It's too hot to exercise outdoors and well....you know how it all goes! ha!
I hope your husband didn't have anything serious. Newfoundland will just be that much better for you both next time, right?!
Just take it easy. Vegan, eh? Good for you. I've come up with some excellent veggies....and totally addicted to hummus. I seldom to never eat red meat. I may join your Eat to Live team. Get some good ideas.
My boss eats extremely healthy and no empty carbs. His wonderful wife makes this fabulous salads with legumes of all varieties, veggie burgers, etc. Working at the Center for Exercise Medicine sort of makes you work on keeping yourself fit, ha. I just have to step it up seriously.
How is everything else? Thanks for checking in on me. I JUST started SP again so timing is perfect.
Lets stay in touch.

Keep up the great work my dear friend!

Greetings Gisela!
New job is going so much nicer. He actually values me! Ahhhhhh.. so refreshing. Busy... VERY busy but I like that too. Days fly by and I'm feeling productive. It's a wonderful group of people. :)
Newfoundland?? Oh..... I'm so envious. Very happy for you. I live my travels through you ;)
I got down to 153.5 last week but this week back to 156. I just didn't change my little reader. Didn't have the heart, ha ha. It makes me sick that just one or maybe 2 slip ups and we pay a heavy price. Doesn't take much to gain and so much effort to lose. Not fair!

Have a FABULOUS trip and keep in touch. Just keep walking and even just maintain if possible. Then, coming back you can begin again. Just maintain! :)

Safe travels!
