I am 71 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. We are are feeling more at home in our new state. I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for more than three years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost it few again. Surgery a couple years seems to have derailed my body's ability to lose weight. I have finally lost a couple pounds and plan to keep Sparking and tracking and exercising and drinking water. Hopefully the trend will continue.

An old song says that only the good die young, and I figure with my youthful history I'm going to be around 200-250 years, so I better take care of this body so I can enjoy those extra years!

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 will continue to get onto SP everyday and to track my calories when I do. Weighing and measuring portions has become a way of life. We are readjusting our eating habits to accommodate my aging husband's various needs. It seems to be helping me drop a few pounds but it not a healthy diet. It's an ongoing balancing act.

Personal Information:
I have transitioned 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.

    I'm not too concerned about the 7 ounces. In a way I am encouraged that I have maintained my weight. I another way I need to get back on track to lose. Losing is so much harder than it used to be. I am not extremely active, so I really need to cut back on my calories to lose and I don't like the feeling of being hungry, so it's hard.
