I am 59 years old and recently retired. I have had a lifelong struggle with weight. I have asthma and high blood pressure. Recently I was told by my Dr. that I was prediabetic. This news really put a fire under me and I am determined to lose weight and get fit once and for all. I am going to the gym regularly and have just joined group sessions of personal training. As far as weight goes I am not concentrating on numbers just getting healthy and feeling better. Since I have started going to the gym regularly, I am 10 pounds down but even better have more energy and my skin glows. I am hoping the spark site will help with that fire I have lighted.

Thanks for your kind words. I hope you are enjoying this Spring weather we are getting. It is so nice to see the cherry blossoms and the magnolias blooming. I love having more daylight!

Cheers! Gwen emoticon

Thanks for letting me know, REFFIE. I had my instructor do them with me today to make sure I was doing them right. I do them really slow and will probably start breaking them up into reps throughout the day so I'm not doing them all at once.

I'm back on track today and feeling good! Thank you for your encouragement. I hope the weather is getting better for you!
Spring is coming! emoticon
