I'm in my 60's and I'm not retired. I am loving life, continue to work through physical challenges, & like going to Curves again. I am a mother, a cousin, an auntee, a friend, a co-worker and I volunteer. I had a total hip replacement on 6/23/2015. I am pain-free in my right hip. I can expect to get the other done within 5 years. I joined SP in 2009 and came back recently after a 3 year absence. I'm trying to make a better connection this time with others, workout consistently, and track every day. Sandy

I'm still loving life & since 2013, to be honest, I have struggled with a smile on my face. Thank God for good friends and family who have stood by my side as I had came to grips with accepting the fact I'm not as young as I used to be but I'm no where near being considered old. I'm aging gracefully; giving a face to what a 67 year old woman looks like. In the 3 years, I have hardly made it regularly to Curves but something bigger than me has nudged me back into the fitness world. Starting Monday, August 22nd, I am committed to 150 minutes a week exercise. This will include 90 minutes at Curves. I am committed to building in enough down time to allow my body to recover from any discomfort or pain. I will have some, varying degrees.

I no longer drink soda pop, junk food, or jelly beans from Costco...I have lost many #'s & 11 inches. I no longer have those "cravings" I thought were normal; instead I long for "greens" and health! I am still @ Cu
