I'm now 62--- 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 11 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 and strong enough to 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 viewing ---- 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 !
