TIme to refresh this page. I joined Spark People just about four years ago now. I lost my first twenty pounds but have not taken seriously my desire to lose about twenty more. While I no longer feel like a fat old lady, that's not enough. I want to feel and look like a fit old lady. I'm reconciled to the age thing. I've been young; I'm done with that. But that only applies to my hair and wrinkles (and maybe a little memory). Age does not give me license to be unhealthy because of how I eat. So ...

So I'm resetting my ticker at my current weight, hoping that will motivate me. You all of course, and Spark People, are what make me convinced I can do this.

Great--that's what I was hoping to hear!

I joined PF about two years ago but haven't been for over a year. Even in the summer, there's the nagging knowledge that once classes start, I won't be able to keep it up and all my efforts will have been for naught. (It happens every summer--15 pounds off, 2o back on by May.) I want to be on a schedule that includes my workouts, writing time, and time for everything else I have been putting off. And I already had a minor cancer scare three years ago, so you're right, who knows how long we have left?

One of my colleagues retired in her 70s about a year and a half ago. At the time, she was panicked that she would miss the students and not know what to do with her time. That didn't happen! I really don't know anyone who has retired who misses working. That might be more of a man thing, perhaps.

Not a lot of sparking going on here either. I am on a team and check in once or twice a week, post weekly scores. But my mojo seems to have taken a hike. It's coming back, however, as I have had signs that the Achilles tendonitis may be returning, and I do NOT want to deal with that again. I need to be moving it and losing it!

Work always gets in the way. I'm planning on retiring in May. There is a slim chance I may stick it out for one more year; my house will be paid off in a few months, and a year's salray without that expense is tempting But I just want to cry when I start thinking about fall classes. It's even harder as I have a great schedule this year with no freshman writing--and that surely won't happen again.

So how are you enjoying your freedom?

Thanks for your good wishes. The downside of being an old lady is that you occasionally lose someone you love.
I see there was a "Buddha" in the obits last week. I hope that wasn't "our' Buddha.
