Hi All
I am 75 years old and a diabetic who has also had cancer three times and now surgery coming up again to check for it again in March 2017 .Skin cancer in 1996, Bladder cancer in 2009, and Breast Cancer in 2011. Three surgerys and chemo and radiation done :).

I just started trying to do more walking outside. I am in TOPS every Monday night and also on Spark People and use the Nutrition Tracker and the Fitness Tracker to keep track of steps, calories etc.
minutes I want to build up to a lot more walking next :) Also riding my exercise bike at home. Had to quit the gym when the price went up again. So trying exercise at home.

My Goals:
My Goal is to lose 47 more pounds or at least . I have diabetes and my A1C was clear up to

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 fibit zip 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
