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.

Thank you for the lovely orchid. It is good having my cook back home. Twice a day nurses isn't too bad. We are hoping that will only be for a few days and then we can get the stitches out and the drain removed and go back to normal life.
Happy Easter!

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?
