Me at 55

My name is Karla, and what a year my husband and I have had! In August of 09, I suffered a heart attack at the age of 54. Talk about a shock! Then living in California, my husband was forced to move out of state so he could continue working and keep our much needed medical insurance. Him in Oklahoma (another shock) and me still in California wasn't the ideal situation for us, but it had to be.

My name is Karla, and what a year my husband and I have had! In August of 09, I suffered a heart attack at the age of 54. Talk about a shock! Then living in California, my husband was forced to move out of state so he could continue working and keep our much needed medical insurance. Him in Oklahoma (another shock) and me still in California wasn't the ideal situation for us, but it had to be. During that year appart, I managed to gain 40 lbs (you'd think my heart attack would have been enough for me to keep up with a healthy lifestyle). My husband and I are finally together again, and have temporarilly relocated to Oklahoma. I am so greatful that I found the SparkPeople website, and must say that I believe that I can do it this time. I want to be healthy and live a long and active life with my best friend and love of my life.

Good to hear from you. Thanks for the encouragement! Have you tried any of the Leslie Sansone walking DVD's? I used them last winter and on days when it rained. They are very upbeat and you can go at it at your own pace. I like them! Keep moving and keep up the good work.

Welcome to SparkPeople. I am so glad that you found us. There is a lot of information here and the best tools to help you reach your goals.

I have been on SparkPeople since April 2009 and I have lost a total of 30 pounds since I have been watching what I eat. I track my food every day (good and bad) and I track my exercise. You can check out my SparkPage and see my fitness and food tracking. I put it all out there for everyone to see – the good, the bad and the ugly. It helps keep me honest! Are there days when I eat stuff that I know I shouldn’t – of course. This is a life long journey, one with many paths to take. I just have to keep making the right choices and when I don’t, I get back on the right path and don’t look back.

The encouragement and motivation I get from my Spark friends is amazing. They are always there to help me through tough times and bring a smile to my face. I have found that if I post something that is bothering me, within an hour someone will respond back and make sure everything is alright and offer encouragement.

Being new, I would suggest that you use Your Spark Points (click on View SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to see what is new and a great tool for any situation.

Sincerely,
Liz
