Meet Pluto. We went on a dog walk and stayed at the park to play. So fun :)





Apollo at the dog agility track. He's panting and I'm not? Hey I ran, too! Lol.





Just went swimming in the lake. What a great time! 180 lbs/50 to go!

Hi!!

I'm a 62 (now 64) year old woman ex workaholic that was stopped in my tracks by a really bad back. For the past 10 years I've been floundering around trying to find just the right lifestyle and diet. I found Spark People on a forum game and here I am. I confess I'm a slow starter. I found "SparkCoach" today and something changed inside of me. It seems there's more to this diet thing than I thought. I realize I need to change just about everything! I like the program here and ...
Hi!!

I'm a 62 (now 64) year old woman ex workaholic that was stopped in my tracks by a really bad back. For the past 10 years I've been floundering around trying to find just the right lifestyle and diet. I found Spark People on a forum game and here I am. I confess I'm a slow starter. I found "SparkCoach" today and something changed inside of me. It seems there's more to this diet thing than I thought. I realize I need to change just about everything! I like the program here and the site is very supportive. This 62 year old woman with a back problem is not the same as I used to be, but maybe I can find a new me, inside of me.

UPDATE 5/14. It's been two years and can you believe it, I'm two years older! I'm 64! Lol. I'm fully entrenched in the SP program and love it! If interested in my progress and life see my blogs.

My quote for you today is by Robert Baden-Powell:

"Correcting bad habits cannot be done by forbidding or punishment."

So, here is to forming new habits with love and compassion! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Elona,
Thank you for sharing my Capital A day.
Best to you in the challenge.
How long have you had sleep apnea? I have had mine a long time - too long. I have not visited the team site in a while, need to go there.
