It's Never Too Late

When I first joined SP in January '06, I weighed 185 pounds. My goal was 25 pounds weight loss. Thus, I chose the name Silver Lady.

For awhile I just gave up even trying to lose weight, telling myself that "after all I am in my golden years it's too late in my life and I should enjoy." JANUARY '10, The scale had dipped and rose repeatedly during the year. Laxity -followed with guilt; followed by weariness of feeling guilty .

For awhile I just gave up even trying to lose weight, telling myself that "after all I am in my golden years it's too late in my life and I should enjoy." JANUARY '10, The scale had dipped and rose repeatedly during the year. Laxity -followed with guilt; followed by weariness of feeling guilty .
January '11. 5th year SparkVersary. Yet another 15 pounds accumulated. Time to get serious. A new resolve, a new beginning. I looked for and found the Spark Team that would provide the most support. I'm taking advantage of the many benfits of Spark People. Thanks to obtainable nutrition and exercise challenges which are provided by the leaders of the team, I am taking full advantage of Spark People.

I'm in my 70's now. My new goal? Can you believe it --my current goal is to reach 185! That's what I weighed when I first joined Spark People.

I Can, I will do that. After all, it's never too late.

Update yet again July 2013! It's good to read my own introudction: Here I am....same info as before. Short term Goal to reach 185 is 5%.

I hope those things that happened in your life settled down and turn out alright. Life has a way of doing that. Know you are missed though and please do not forget to take care of yourself. I am continuing to recapture my normals and getting stronger everyday. I laugh and say the iron, gallon milk carton and dishes have gotten lighter and my house shrunk ...it is so much easier to walk around my house now. I'm sending you gentle hugs and hope you hurry back to us.óż...that c3/4 was suppose to be a heart..oh well.

Thanks for the comments, yes I used to hula hoop but my favorite was roller skating I tried to put some on again a few years back, just because my husband told me I was Crazy I'd kill myself, He was right, lol! That lasted about 2 min. We play Wii games with our son sometimes, the golf and bowling. Take care
