Thanks. I'm really anxious to get back there. I have great grandchildren whom I haven't seen for 7 years, and one who was born after I moved here, so I haven't seen her at all.

I have a lot ahead of me, a Caribbean Cruise, packing, yard sale, the holidays. It will be a full 6 weeks. And I'm trying to lose weight at the same time.

"Hello" to you all too. I just joined. I joined a few years ago, but caring for my mother kept me too busy. She just passed away at 102, and I have time now. I tried to log in and couldn't. I changed internet servers and don't remember my old password. I was Tenngramm then.

Anyway. I joined again as Newgoal. I'm 82, will be 83 next month. I'm thrilled to find a group in my age group. There wasn't any when I joined before. I go to the gym 3 times a week for the Silver Sneakers program for seniors. I also walk 3-4 times a week with my step-sister, who lives just a block away from me. So I get plenty of exercise.

I will be moving home to TN in January. I'd like to get back to goal by then, if I can. How do you get that scale with yor progress charted? I think they are so cute, but can't find how to get one for myself.

A very warm welcome to you, Carolyn! Aren't daughters wonderful? One of our daughters got me going on the computer too.
You sound like many of the rest of us-carrying weight round for years and finally deciding to really do something about it.
Well you came to the right place. Everyone here is struggling in one way or other and are all trying in our own way to get healthier by making the changes we need to do it. Spark People is a great place to start but only you can make the changes necessary. "YOU are the leader you have been waiting for!" Small steps each day will do it. Good luck and looking forward to hearing about your progress. Pat

Hi, I'm Pat and just joined this group. I'm 61 with four grandkids and a desire to be able to keep up with them a little better. I managed to quit smoking so far this year, and now I really need to work on the weight.

I joined the bootcamp thing for motivation, but I'm not sure how long I can keep up that intensity. We'll see. Hopefully it will all get easier if I manage to dump some extra pounds.

A special welcome to our newest member BARGOO
We love having you with us. No matter what our age we can get moving just a bit more than yesterday and I know we can make better food choices by following the SPARK people suggestions. We have the same capabilities of making changes in our lives as the younger folks. Hugs, Pat

DEAR Gopp WELCOME, NICE TO HAVE SOMEONE OLDER THAN ME ABOARD. I am 81 and do try to get my diet to work, Yes I am doing it right, but older takes longer to move the fat, I have lost 8 lbs in January but nothing moves since, someday soon I hope as I do just exactly what I was supposed to do. I live in a small house a few feet from my daughter, do all my own work, drive my car and get groceries and do my own meals so can really have charge. I have a paved long driveway for walking when I can make the back straighten out enough, most days. God Bless Caryol

THESE SPARK PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN ME NEW LEASE ON LIFE.
LOVE IT.

Welcome ghoppi18 How wonderful that your daughter signed you up!. We are a very special and unique group. You will do just fine here. I had a daughter that did the same for me several years ago. That is, she set me up with a computer and taught me the ropes. Most of it over the phone! but in the end it was worth it. Our group is unique in that it is for people 80 years old or older so you definately qualify. You can teach us a thing or two along the way. I will be 82 in May. Please go to my Spark Page and learn a little about me and I will do the same with yours. Again wlcome, Pat
