'WHAT?" eat less and exercise MORE!! you have to be joking... but OK I will have to...

I am like a Phoenix, arising from the ashes of cancer. To begin again at life

I will always be a Prince Fan. I have nearly all of his vinyl records from 1978. Now DVD's.

No one told me there'd be days like these...
as the song goes...All of a sudden I am an old lady and I have put on heaps of weight!!! I am still laughing, because it was a surprise!!
I turned 60 and then it all happened!!!? post menopause. bad back, sore feet, the list could go on...and on...the main problem is that I have Hashimoto's disease of the thyroid, so I have slow metabolism, type 2 diabetes, fatigue. Must beat it though! and with the help from Sparkpeople I hope to make it!!! Vintage model
addit: now I am 69 years old, recovering from cancer. Not a pleasant 20 months. Now I must regain my spiritual, mental and physical health. Sparkpeople is the only way I can lose weight. thank you everyone. xxx

    Popping in to see how you are doing.
    I hope everything is well with you.

    I bought myself a pedometer, not sure I trust it's accuracy.
    I guess I need to get used to it.

    Drop me a line, let me know how you are doing.
    Thinking of you,
