Hi All
I am 71 years old and a diabetic who has also had cancer twice in two years. Bladder cancer in 2009, and Breast Cancer in 2011. Three surgerys and chemo and radiation done :).

I just started Curves again after over a year off with health problems. Going every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and trying to do more walking too even if only at home because of the heat and humidity hoping it cools down so I can walk outside. I am in TOPS every Monday night and also on Spark ...
Hi All
I am 71 years old and a diabetic who has also had cancer twice in two years. Bladder cancer in 2009, and Breast Cancer in 2011. Three surgerys and chemo and radiation done :).

I just started Curves again after over a year off with health problems. Going every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and trying to do more walking too even if only at home because of the heat and humidity hoping it cools down so I can walk outside. I am in TOPS every Monday night and also on Spark People and use the Nutrition Tracker and the Fitness Tracker here. I splurged and bought myself a SPAT or tracker I wear on my shoes or sock in the house to keep track of steps, calories burned and minutes, Not sure how it does it but it knows exercise steps versus at home or walking steps and only counts the last if ten minutes at a time or more.

Got in my 40 minutes at Curves today two rounds of machines and stretching then 17 minutes of walking steps. I want to build up to a lot more walking next :)

My Goals:
My Goal is to lose 35 more pounds or at least most of it have lost about 17 pounds have my diabetes in excellent control and want to be able to move and walk better and live my life as I was before a few setbacks. Working on it now for the last three weeks and decided to get back to Spark People to encourage others as well as get support and encouragement myself. Hope to be able to help others along the journey to a healthier thinner life

My Program:
I am in a local TOPS group and have been since 2009 and it helped me a lot but a couple of cancers and other things threw me off and I backslide . Using my food tracker and exercise tracker the SPAT which I just bought from Spark People is terrific it is encouraging me to get up and move and making me want to exercise a little more each day. Hope some day to get up to the 6,000 steps a week goal.

Thank you for the friend add and the goodie.....

Loved reading about you.... and wish you a great journey on SP towards being healthier and fitter.

I see that you are way younger than me, so remember dear friend if I could pick up the thread and lose weight towards a healthier life at 85 you can definitely do better than me. We are always here to cheer and support you.

Also I see we do have a lot of similarities, the biggest one being our DH's medical condition...and not to mention the wonderful support our family is to us.

Looking forward to you as a great friend....

Hugs,Prayers & Blessings
