Hi there, I returned to Spark People in June of 2014 and have changed my life drastically ever since.

I reached my goal weight of 130lbs on October 6th then reset my goal weight to 120lb which I achieved on November 22nd.

I reset my goal to 115lbs for a final goal and am presently at 109lbs with a BMI of 20

Since returning, I have remained focused on my goals and look to my future as a lean and healthy senior who shall live past my 100th birthday. ...

Since returning, I have remained focused on my goals and look to my future as a lean and healthy senior who shall live past my 100th birthday.
I feel more confident, energized, younger, stronger and healthier than ever.

I have set new goals for myself to become a runner by June of 2015 and to developing my muscles so I can look toned and lean.

I WILL REACH MY GOALS! ....nothing can STOP Me!

Personal Information:
My name is Susan and
I am 62 years young. I plan on living until I am 103 years so I am working on staying as healthy as I can through Spark People.

I am married to my soul mate Brian and have been for 37 years . We have 4 adult children and 4 grown grandchildren and we are the proud owners of 3 beautiful dogs and 4 wonderful cats that we rescued last summer..

I love to do world travel with my husband and I also enjoy reading a good mystery or crime novel.

I find that power walking is the greatest way for me to de-stress and I love it!

Outside of my home commitments, I am dedicated to my 81 year young mother who is also my best friend. We spend at least 2 days a week together doing all sorts of fun things.

Hi Susan! Thanks for the goodie. And thanks for noticing my absence! You are a good friend! I'm okay, just insanely busy. I hope to catch up tonight when I get back from work. I can't stand to miss commenting on your blogs. I read the sad one late last night and the new one this morning, but haven't had time to respond cuz I have to rush out the door to a class. I'll be back later and can't wait to spend some time with you! It's always so fun and I miss it even if it's just for a day!

Our loved ones can be extra sensitive during stressful times. My prayer is always God's grace & peace upon everyone involved and so many decisions that have to be addressed. You are a lady of mercy and strength that I would love to be a voice piece if I was going through a difficult trial.

I pray that your joy will be complete in Him, my friend.

Thanks for the comment and the add. Actually it seems to be a trend among many of us to become runners as part of our new lives. I also now swim, spin, lift and whatever else I can. I think mixing it up keeps our minds and bodies always guessing and thinking of what we will do next. Plus I have found it a great way to not over use or exert certain muscles or body parts. My favorite is a quick swim after any workout to cool me off or even me out temperature wise. So if you feel like it I highly recomend it and just making sure you mix it up in general when getting your workout in. Also lifting is a great pairing with running as well to improve your speed and endurance overall. Have a great half marathon and enjoy it all! emoticon
