I am 68 years old and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for a full two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again.

I am 68 years old and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for a full two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again. I switched to the Atkins program which helped me break the plateaus feel much better without the cravings. The packing and moving and unpacking and living in chaos for the last 3 months really threw a monkey wrench into that program. Still the winter holidays have usually been pretty good to me weight-wise so I trust I will manage to stay stable or lose as we get adjusted to our new environs.

An old song says that only the good die young, and I figure if I'm going to be around 200-250 years I better take care of this body!

Fitness Minutes: 14,582

My Goals:
My goals are simple: get my weight down about 25 more pounds and my clothes down about 2 additional sizes. My original AHA moment came when I realized 1 more pound would put me in the BMI obese category, and my target is to get into the healthy range and stay there.

My Program:
I am determined to get onto SP everyday and to track my calories when I do. Weighing and measuring portions has become a way of life. My biggest challenge has been to get our dietary habits reorganized as my husband has been our family chef for many years and now we will be sharing this task.

Personal Information:
I am transitioning from the paid workforce to retired status and look forward to discovering new places and creating new friendships.

Other Information:
I am deeply immersed in a wide variety of metaphysical activities. I welcome correspondence with those who share this journey.

Thanks for commenting on my How NOT to Eat Like a College Kid blog. The crazy thing is I used to be as thin as they are and could eat whatever I wanted, but those days are long gone. I wish I had learned to eat healthy back then, but it never even crossed my mind I might have a weight problem down the road.

Oh well, I'll be a good example for him now. Better late than never I suppose.

Thanks for adding me back. I have no idea how I found you. I get bored and start jumping from page to page, usually writers or folks who have similar interests. I'd wager it's something along those lines since you're a writer. So I add the folks that seem interesting, so there you go. I'm looking forward to getting to know you too.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog about the Veterans Reunion, it does mean a lot to me. I was married to a Vietnam veteran. I know the demons they brought home and the struggles they had. I also know what it was like being married to a Vietnam veteran. Thank you for being there for as long as you were. It was hard. Hugs.

Thanks for reading my blog. I hope you come back again. I haven't been to Colorado for years. I have Cousins that live there. Beautiful state!
