Colorado Grandma

I am now 68 years old and still fighting the battle of the bulge. But at least I'm still fighting and SparkPeople has been helping me for about a year and a half. I still have the same 22-25 pounds to lose having lost and then gained and then lost a few again. I'm have switched to the Atkins program. It has helped me break the plateaus and I feel much better without the cravings. It will be interesting to see what this year brings.

Pretty soon I will change the page title to ...

Pretty soon I will change the page title to "Oregon Grandma" as we will be moving. It will also be interesting to see what the change in lifestyle does to my body and my program.

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: 14,567

My Goals:
My goals are simple: get my weight down about 35 pounds and my clothes down about 2-3 sizes. My AHA moment came when I realized1 more pound would put me in the BMI obese category, and my target is to get into the healthy range.

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. The biggest challenge has been to get my husband to realize I am actually doing this, not just talking about it. He is retired and has become the family cook, so his cooperation is vital.

Personal Information:
I live in Colorado, supposedly the thinnest state, and supposedly one of the healthiest states in the Union. I want to be part of that success, not one of the detractors who might ruin that rating.

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

You made my day with, "Sounds like a man with some personal issues. I have to wonder if an encounter or two with a real ghost would raise his respect for the dead as well as the living."

THANK YOU!!!

Hi Pat,
Don't worry about getting thank yous out to me. Many times I read your blogs and don't take the time to comment, so I guess we are about even in the communication department. I don't always get thank yous out from comments on my blogs and status comments, although there usually aren't very many. You are one of my dearest friends on SP and I greatly value your ongoing concern for my welfare. I hope you know I think of you often and try to keep tabs on your well-being even if I don't always comment.

Best wishes and have a great day!
Carol

Hi Carol hope you are doing well. Did you get some rest last night? Wanted to thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blogs. Sometimes I don't get a thank you to every one like I should. emoticon emoticon
