sixty is the new 40? Im going for it !

I'm now 60--- quit smoking for my 50th birthday- the best present I could have ever given myself. I gained the typical 20 pounds they say you gain when you quit smoking. . Those 20 new pounds are right around my mid section and 9 years later they are still with me.
I realize that while I have learned alot here on SP - am aware of so much more and have developed some new great healthy habits - I have to be brave enough CHANGE. I cannot read and type my way to weight loss. Glad ...

I realize that while I have learned alot here on SP - am aware of so much more and have developed some new great healthy habits - I have to be brave enough CHANGE. I cannot read and type my way to weight loss. Glad to be here making online friends to learn from, encourage and celebrate success with.

I have opened up my food tracker and fitness pages for public vewing ---- sharing my life will lead to learning more about everyone's experience on the path to fitness. Comment on anything you see.
Im just now entering a new phase of life. I have retired from a 35 year career.. This means i get to decide what i want to be when i grow up.................... trim and fit is definitely on that list.

.......... Now to just do it !

have been on spark almost every day and yet forget to visit my own page...................... so didnt see all the nice housewarming gifts. thanks to everyone.......... Im settled in - loving it - and waiting for summer so I can really enjoy being a shore person full time - probably more a beach bum.

so is it going to stop snowing in NJ? wondering about the big melt down. Hoping people dont end up with flooding....... guess one good thing is there should not be water shortages this summer. Summer - Im hardly waiting for it to arrive.

enjoy all !
