Here I am with a geocache I found not far from home
This is Molly & Me
I'm 63 years old, but I feel like I'm 80! My bones ache, my feet hurt, I have diabetes, and I'm 50 pounds overweight. My friend told me about Sparkpeople and she lost 43 pounds! Could I do that, too?
Recently I have taken on a new hobby - geocaching- but I can't climb the hills around me now, much less the rocks that seem to be all over. I would like to lose 20 pounds. I bet if I did, I would be able to have FUN outdoors again, instead of being afraid of falling, being afraid I'll fail, being afraid I'll be fat forever. I cry as I write this confession, as I have a wonderful family who loves me. I've failed with diets so many times before I can't name them. If I lose 10 pounds I gain 12, if I give up, this is where I stay-- unfit and unhappy with myself. So... Here I go.

Yes, I have a lot of weight to lose (and age, too, for that matter) before I can successfully go geocaching. There are plenty of caches around that are #1 & 2 and these are the only one's I will attempt right now. I am NOT in shape, and I'll bet if I can do it, so can you! If it's something you'd like to try, go for it! It's just a great way for me to get out in the air doing SOMETHING instead of sitting my my computer, which takes up a LOT of time! I don't know how much I'm going to do a few weeks before Christmas.. It's such a busy time. But I'd like to get out for an hour or two. Too bad it isn't listed as a "spark" exercise! Blessings to you, and thanks for answsering.

Thanks! I have a lot of weight to get rid of before I can successfully start geocaching, hopefully in the spring. Until then, I'm going to keep up at the site you sent me. I noticed several are hidden in this area - one within 2 miles of my apartment!
I hope all is going well for you.
