Is Age 71 too late?

I'm one of those yo yo's. Except for the past 7 or 8 years my yo-yo has only gone up. I get discouraged at how many (hundreds?) of times I have started to lose weight...and how many (hundreds?) PLUS ONE time I have failed.

It is May 17, 2015. And so I begin. Again.

Still, I wonder if I should just accept the back and hip pains, accept the difficulty walking (much less go up and down stairs), accept being short of breath all the time. After all I am going to be 72 ...

Member Since: 1/1/2011

SparkPoints: 17,946

Fitness Minutes: 7,593

My Goals:
To build a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle that:
1) Is do-able
2) Is realistic



My Program:
1. Drink my water.
2. Exercise every day.
3. Track my food intake.
4. Track my fitness

Personal Information:
The "black magic" number for me is 40. I have lost 40 lbs. several times in the last 10 years, and it seems that is the turn-around-and- go backwards point for some reason. I did this on Spark. Lost 40 lbs, then hit a huge family crisis, and gave up (again). So I will consider my REAL starting point at my 40-lb. mark...only then will I "believe"!

Other Information:
I have been crafting with nursing home residents, and sewing dolls for needy and ill children.

Recently I started crafting hand-made pretend food and drink for 15" - 20" dolls. My husband makes beds, I do bedding, lamps, etc.

You're back!!! I just got in from my trip and still putting things in order but will post soon. So glad to hear from you. Doing this together with your husband, and for his health, may be just what you need.
