Hi, LOBBY and emoticon to Spark and to the Team! I like your attitude - 61 is young. I was just talking to some of my cousins about this. We are all in that age group and we are all amazed how much "younger' we are then our parents were. I think our Baby Boomer Generation has a younger outlook then any group before them emoticon

Here is my advice - for what it's worth emoticon 1) Use your nutrition tracker faithfully, every single day, because it will keep you honest and accountable for your choices; 2) Find a few exercises/activities YOU enjoy doing and then do them 3-4X a week. It can be walking, running, biking, an hour at a gym - whatever. For me it's water aerobics, water jogging, using aqua dumb bells for strength training, lawn bowling, and Bocce ball emoticon Whatever you decide to do, if you enjoy it the odds are you'll stick with it!; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because they will give you tons of encouragement and keep you motivated. It's like having your own personal emoticon emoticon and; 4) Have fun with this! You are doing something great for yourself so enjoy the journey!

On last thought: this is one area where "slow and steady wins the race" is more then just an old cliche emoticon Spark teaches you how to live a new and healthier lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food. emoticon

I am 52 and I truly realize that age is just a number. At times my body tells me that I can't do the things that I used to do. I just switch up the program and do what I can. Welcome and enjoy the journey! emoticon

I like your attitude, "I may have to get older, but I will never grow up"!! My mind is much younger than my body so I guess, in a way, I am also refusing to "grow up".lol

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x.

Sharon,
Thank you for the warm welcome. As you have stated I know that I can do this, because the older we get, the harder it is. I am 61, however very active and I want to continue.

Hi and welcome to the team. I applaud your decision to stay healthy. So many of us ignore taking proper care of ourselves until after our health begins to deteriorate. emoticon

At the young age of 61, I am determined to stay healthy so that I can continue to enjoy life to the fullest. I have many outdoor interests including mowing, hunting, maintaining my vehicles and cutting wood for my fireplace. This new community has given me the awareness of how to stay healthy and pursue my love of life.
