My goals are to be happy and healthy. Wealthy would be pretty good too. I would like to trim down so as I can be more active and to be able to cross my legs with ease ! I'd also like to be happier with what i see in the mirror on the occasions that I have to look into one.
my name is joan, i live in newcastle, australia.. i'm 65 years old, i almost said 64, time has caught up with me again, it does that a lot lately.. i'm a retired general and midwifery nurse, but haven't worked now for about 8 years..i was terminated due to a bad back but i can do most things within reason. i am married (43 years in september) we have 4 children. 3 girls and the youngest a boy already 30. where oh where has my life gone. but i now have 3 little grandsons 8 and 5 years and a new little one at 2 months. the 2 youngest daughters have managed to produce them. i am enjoying them but they live quite a distance from me so i don't get to see them very often. my wt. has always been a "thing" with me..although looking back at old photos i wasn't too bad but always thought i was fat... really hippy anyway. since i finished work and got lazy really do have too much weight and even feel very heavy - i do have to shift it if i want to feel and look better and be healthier.
Hello, Joan, how have you been? I am not active on Spark People any longer, but I sure don't want to lose your friendship. You can find me on Facebook or at my blog www.dschondog.wordpress.com. I pray you are well.
Thanks Joan for the lovely comments on the wedding pictures. She was a beautiful bride. I will tell her you liked the color of her dress. It is her favorite color. Hope all is well with you. Good hearing from you.
Hi... Hope all is going well. Have not seen you post a lot. It is a new month and I decided 2 weeks ago... I HAVE to do better with my sugar and get this weight going down. At 5 Ft 2 ..being over 200 for over 30 yrs was a baddddddd move. I am getting older and pushing the unhealthy envelope toooooo much. I am saying NO to myself a lot lately.. ohhhh I want to eat and eat stuff I cant have but then I remind myself I want to live...that wins! WE can make the difference we need...what have we been waiting for? Let's gooooooooooooo!
