'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

    Clover hugs are better than regular hugs because they contain 4 times the heart, more fiber and fewer calories. emoticon

    Spark on!

    Dear OV,
    Are we on for today?
    I think you have a pretty good excuse for not going out to walk.
    It sounds like you might be swimming for your exercise soon!

    Seriously, I send prayers for the safety of all living beings in the path of the storms you are experiencing.
    I am glad you feel safe from the waters.

    For you my friend.

    I got my exercise in today but I did not do so well with the food plan.
    I lost today's challenge, but that is what a challenge is all about, right? If it were easy it would not be a challenge!

    Want to give it a go again sometime?
    Just say the word.
