I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    Thanks for the Spark Goodie. I am trying this time to make a determined effort at weight loss. In the past it's been hit and miss, but I want to make this time work. I had 62 pounds to lose as a goal and over a long time i have shed 37, but only 5 pounds in the past couple of years. Those remaining 25 pounds are going to MELT! LOL. Thanks again!
