An exciting journey and a new beginning

I'm 62 years young, have crummy joints from arthritis, but a super-positive attitude. I'm looking forward to the next phase of my life, and being fit and healthy enough to enjoy every minute.

My Goals:
Jan/13 My goals are get fit enough to make my knee replacement surgery a success. Then, I want to get fit enough to ride a bike again, do Zumba and feel fit and ready to enjoy the next phase of my life
Sept/13 New knee is a success, goal reached of being able to bike.
New goals: Increase my general fitness levels, including flexibility, strength and cardio. Keep moving towards my goal weight of 150 lbs. I'm only 15 lbs away!

My Program:
I'm starting off by being more conscious of what I eat, both in terms of quality and quantity. I'm also doing a very moderate exercise program
Sept/13 Knee replacement surgery was a success, now I'm adding in 30 minutes p/day of cardio and strength exercise consistently. I'm also adding as many NEAT minutes as I can, taking stairs, walking to/from work. I track, track, track all of my food, every day. That is key to reaching my goals.

Personal Information:
I live in Vancouver BC Canada with my husband and kitty Max. We love to walk, travel and are both avid photographers.

Other Information:
1. Exercise Program. 30 minutes per day of walking/cardio. 3 times per week of strength with handweights

You are certainly a positive force to be reckoned with... I am having my first total knee replacement surgery in June 2014. I am currently 315 pounds and am trying my darnedest to drop at least 30-40 pounds by then... I am looking for ALL of the Spark support I can get my hands on and thought I would contact you because we seem to be on the same track. I am also curious about your knee replacement surgery and are you happy that you decided to do it. THANK YOU and GOOD LUCK to you!!!!

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
