I am 64 years old. I have been married for 13 years this past February. I joined SP July 21, 2014 and lost 37 pounds in the first six months. After this loss, I went through a gain/loss period. I will be working hard to lose the pounds I have regained during the Summer 5% Challenge.

Current Weight: 148.5
5% Goal: 7.4
Goal Weight: 141

Goals for 5% Summer Challenge:
Even though I am enduring chronic bone on bone pain in my knee and mostly my right thumb, I will continue to work on at least 5000 steps plus per day (or as many as my knees allow), taking it one day at a time. In addition, I will aim to walk at least 10 mins. consecutively, every day and work on consistency with menus.

I know I can do this with the help of my SparkFriends.
