I am 64 years old; soon to be 65. I have been married for 13 years this past February. I have 4 dogs, a cat and a horse. 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 next 5% Challenge. I want to feel good about myself again and get rid of this stomach.

Current Weight: 149.7
5% Goal: 7.5
Goal Weight: 142

Goals for 2016 Fall 5% 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.
