SparkPoints: 8,987

Fitness Minutes: 2,015

My Goals:
I want to lose at least 100 pounds. I will know when I get there if that is enough.

I have lost 26 pounds since I crawled back on the wagon again and I am praying I can stay on the right track long enough to lose the other pounds ... 1 pound at a time.

My Program:
I am using the food tracker religiously, increasing water intake, and really working on increasing my activity level.

Personal Information:
I am a wife, mother of four, and grandmother of eleven.

I am newly retired and working to adjust. I miss teaching, but I am renewing old hobbies and I have more time to concentrate on getting this weight off.





Other Information:
I love heirloom sewing ... I could spend hours with this hobby (if I had them to spend). I also love to read and I am afraid I spend too much time surfing the web.

Thanks for stopping my Spark Page. So glad that you getting back on track.

I know what you mean about stressful situations. I've just been through a few months of extreme stress due to my job. Long story short, after working for the same school site for 34 years, the new principal decided to eliminate my position. Since I'm not quite ready to retire, I ended up bumping someone with less seniority but only for part time hours. Besides that, the principal was making things very uncomfortabe in the office, back stabbing, unkind, nothing was good enough, she had her hand picked favorites who would spy on the rest of us, so much so that we didn't even feel like we could talk to each other.

I have never experienced anything like that in all my years of working. I struggled from January until I found out that at least I had a part time position in May. Then of course the last few months there were tough because of leaving the staff, parents and students that I considered family.

I finally got back on track a few weeks ago and being on summer vacation helped a lot. Being able to vent and talk to other on SP was a great help as well.

Stress eating is one of my problems as well. I'm doing much better now. I try to find something else when I feel like I want to stress eat. I will get up and clean, go for a walk, work on some kind of craft, read, talk to a good friend or get on SP.

I hope you will continue to ask your SP friends for help. That is why we are all here.

As new team leader for "Fabulous & Fit 60+ Sparkers" I wanted to check in with all the team members to see how each are doing. I have not seem you on any of the team forums.

My intentions when taking over this team was to get it going and more active. Unfortunately, right after I did I had some personal issues with the job which created financial issues as well. I was having a difficult time functioning. Now I am back on track and hope to represent the team in a positive way.

I hope you are well on your way to loosing that 100 lbs. I have posted team goals, (which seem a little to easy, will change them next month) and added 2 new forums which are related to the goals.

Please let me know if there is any way I can be of help on your weight loss journey.

Hope to see you on the team forum soon.

As an Aquarian you are a "fixed" sign, which means you can stay with something when you set a goal and work toward it. But, Aquarians focus so much on OTHER people that they so often neglect themselves. (Think of Thomas Edison working in his lab to help all of mankind. His greatest gift wasn't developing the field of Electrical Engineering, but Scientific Method.)
I have never understood why some Aquarians can have a weight problem, since Aquarius is an "Air" sign & not really about being weighted down. Aquarius is so intelligent, and makes a great teacher, designer, etc. (My oldest son is an Aquarian. He was a National Merit Finalist in high school.) Aquarius has problems with their ankles. They are some how an isolated only child growing up & get lots of attention from adults.
