emoticon emoticon Sounds like what you are doing is fun. I've heard about retired people taking several years to go to some place and be a missionary for their church once they no longer had family obligations and they had an income from retirement money. I once met a woman who had been a Baptist missionary for five years in Japan after she'd retired. She said she had always loved Japanese culture and had felt sorry for Japanese children in WW2 since she knew that they hadn't wanted a war. She said her time was spent well and she learned the language.

You can always WALK and get good exercise, or do Yoga. NO equipment needed. emoticon

The thing that helps me most is using the tracker to track all that I eat. I get a good report and breakdown of my food and can use that information to make improvements in my diet. Good luck to you.

its hard but it can be done - remember its not just the calorie count that you need to look it is what you are eating too - and if you journal sometimes it is the little bites that add up. I can try and help you draw up a plan if you contact me if you cant come right

emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.

A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.

2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

I created my name several years ago, when it seemed easier to get trim. Now, at 62, I have a couple of challenges, and I wonder if itīs still possible..

1- Iīve been living in South America for the past 7 months, and will be here for the next 1.5 yrs-- American foods are often hard to find, and local food is high in carbs.. On the plus side: lots of fresh fruits and veggies available all year.

2- I am serving as a missionary for my church, and have a pretty fully schedule. I do have
30 min each morning designated and encouraged for exercise.The remainder of the day is
usually in an office, sitting. Once or twice a week, we walk about 1-1.5 milesĻ. We do walk
to the office and back twice a day (about 2 -3 long blocks each way)

3. I am now at about 68 kilos (148#) and would like to be at 130#. I worked at lowering food intake, and doing sittups, and bicycling legs, for 4 months, but no loss. I stayed exactly the same!!!

QUESTION: Is it possible for me to lose weight, and tone up, given my age, and circumstances?I donīt have access to a gym, but I do have some 3-5 lbs hand weights, and a stretch band.(and DESIRE!!) Any suggestions??

Thanks a big bunch!! I hope to be........Texas Trim Girl again!!!!!
