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

    Hey! guess what?? I am down to 90.6 kgs!! I went on a short cruise with the family. the first time I have experienced it! The food was so fat free, choices of fresh fruits, salads, grills, chicken, rice, etc. I ate sensibly as I did not want to gain the weight. I walked around the deck, I got lost all of the time, so it took me 40 mins to find my way to anywhere. The rocking of the ship also burned up more energy. ( I should live on a cruise ship, because you have to walk everywhere ( it is also wheelchair friendly). My son paid for my fare, as I am on pension. We all had a great time, I took travel-calm sea sick tablets, so I had no nausea. I had a few cocktails, an icecream and a few deserts. On the whole, I was not a guts as I could lhave been. Thanks to the encouragement from my Spark friends. Thanks. Hope all is well with you all, I have to eat correctly and walk a bit now that the excitement of the holiday is over. hmmmmm do not want to go back to old habits. Love, Old Vintage emoticon

    How are you doing my friend?
    Hang in there. The struggle is so much worth the pay off.
    And having said that, I need to get my behind on the treadmill!

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

    Spark on!

    I am pleased to be added to your circle of Spark friends.
    I too am having to 'Get back up' today, yet again. Slipped and fell into a bag of sweet potato chips last night.
    But for me, it is the only way I will ever get through this. Just get back up!

    Looking forward to getting to know you better,
    Hugs,
    Belinda
