that would be me. the turtle.

1. slow to learn but once i catch on lookout
2. slow to realize that only exercise and
heathly eating wins the race.
3. kept my head tucked in my shell where it was
comfortable ignoring weight gain and health issues

Although I am still a turtle at heart I have learned so much in the past few weeks from Sparks and my Sparks friends it is amazing.

I have now transformed myself from a turtle to WonderWoman and I am on a long journey to find the Land of Healthy where I plan to live for the rest of my life.

I averaged about 3/4 pound loss per week over the last year. It is a lot slower than when I was younger, but it is still possible.

It sounds like you are doing good. I would stay AWAY from the scales for awhile. Stay active and pay attention to how you feel, how your clothes are fitting, and how you are sleeping.

I have not always been a turtle, but now have multiple health problems...
I exercise 6 days a week for 30 minutes and eat from 1400 to 1900 calories daily of clean healthy calories.
Still no weight loss. I will keep eating healthy and exercising, but it gets discouraging! Any constructive suggestions?

I have a small statue of a turtle with a card that says "Behold the turtle, he only makes progress when he sticks his neck out!"

So keep sticking your neck out and stretching to achieve goals.


Be the type of Woman, who crawls out of bed everyday, and the Devil says, "Oh No! She's awake" !

A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse.

At age 52, and going through menopause, I have discovered that it is vastly more difficult to keep my weight off and exercise than even two years ago. I have significantly less energy and strength than before menopause in 2008. But, I can make healthier food choices and still jog. I might be slower, but I am steady and consistent.

Thank you! I adopted that name, which is also my personal motto, precisely because I too was a TURTLE! Being stubborn was how I kept on going...

Just because we are over 50 (or 60-70-or 80)is no reason that we can not reach our goals to live long, healthy lives.
Keep the Turtle on the front page of the 'Getting Fit Over 50' Group to remind us all that "Slow and Steady Wins The Race"
