Hi, I'm Gloria and I'm new but not new! emoticon
I had been on this team for years and once was leader, but I left about a year and a half ago. Came back to see my friends and to join in their conversations again. This is a good team!
See you all on the threads!

You're not dumb. There's a lot on this site and it takes time to learn. You did the smart thing. You asked a question. The more you ask - the more you learn. Have fun with it.

Thank you. I feel so dumb and I know that no one wants me to feel that way. I'm not ordinarily so slow to catch on, but this computer business!!!!!
I'll give it a try. Thanks again. This is a fun family. And I love the credit going to the Lord.

Connie, click on SparkPages near the top of the screen. It's in the red row. From there follow the instructions. I did it 3 months ago and I don't remember exactly how it goes.

Once you get on your page you will click on "Edit my SparkPage" or something like that and you can type in your info.

To add a picture you'll click on "add a picture" and then browse your computer for the file you want to add.

I'll check this thread a few times a day so if you run into a problem let me know and we'll try to figure it out.

I'm excited about this Classy 70s, too. I'm learning about this sending and receiving stuff, but not too bright at it. But really appreciate seeing what others have to say and the encouragements it gives me. I need to figure out the friends thing. There is so much to learn, but it's all so good. I am really excited about my daughter-in-law who is a sweetheart who has so much trouble with her weight and was so discouraged. I told her about SPs one day and she was busy, so I didn't think she was interested (you get that way when you have tried them all and it only works for a while), but learned yesterday that she is trying SP and my son is on it with her as an encourager. I'm praying that she has found an answer here. She is such a pretty girl and was so slim, but when she turned 40 she started having problems, too. Thanks for listening. Connie

Wow!! You talk my language. I'm in the process of learning things here. I gain a little each time I take time to delve into things, but it's slow. I am to be 73 on May 6, and I also have a good 30 to lose. Also, it seemed to come out of nowhere and I was oblivious, apparently. Menopause seemed to be the culprit. So I have been carrying this around for quite some time and it really likes me because it doesn't want to leave. I think baggy clothes kept me in the dark. (Where I should stay). I'm a little slow on the fitness, too, and can't understand that because I USED to exercise regularly.

Good Morning Ladies - how are we doing today??I'm feeling like a cold is coming on, but then maybe its just allergies.
Jan - Do you have any of Leslie Sansone Walk the Pounds tapes!!! I use them a lot when I really exercise. They are fun and easy to do - she has a lot of different tapes now, I even have the one with arm weights and belly band -you can tone and walk at the same time.
Barbara - I also don't master the food tracker very well - I just use that quickie bar they have at the beginning of the page. Track your water and click on the little button to track your fruit and vegs. It takes to long to list everything, so I rarely use that.
Well, hope you all have a good day
Hugs, Flo

Hi Barbara! I'm so proud of you having nearly conquering the food tracker! I found myself largely at a loss, and I was spending too much time (lost) trying to figure it out, as I have not had a taste for any of the meals already presented. So my DH gave me a note book to use. I'm very happy with it. In all honesty, I've had trouble with activity tracker, as well. Some time in the not too far furture (I hope) it will finally reveal itself to me. emoticon

Thank you for the welcome. I smile as I type ...

Cheers and success, Barbara!

Oh yes, Flo, I'm with you! And the more Classy 70s souls the better!! I'm still on the hunt for a bathing suit so that I can start water aerobics. Found one on JC Penny's web site that seemed appropriate, so I expect I will be ordering it today. I haven't found any yet that are designed for taller folks, so I'm just looking for longer skirts.

In the mean time, I've been doing stretching exercises in order to get oiled up for the class. Yesterday I did one of SP's exercise videos. A little too much floor work in that one. Not so good for older bones. Need to work up to that. What suggestions do you have, Flo?? I'd love to do exercises with you! Perhaps you can find a more appropriate SP video or you may have other nifty ideas!

Cheers to all!!!!

Jan

Welcome ladies - maybe we can support each other with this weight loss at our ages.
I will be 74 in July - need to lose at least 30 lbs. I have never had a problem with weight until about the last 5 yrs. All of the sudden, it just seems to sneak up on me.I got into bad habits and one day I woke up and WOW - what happened!!! I admit, I'm not much into the fitness stuff but I know I must do it. that is my goal for now - Anyone with me!!!
Hugs, Flo

Welcome back. I have been here actively since December of 2011, really a newcomer. I am still learning how to operate all the info functions on Spark. I blame it on aging.....almost 78 ! I have almost mastered the input of food but still have a problem with how to enter the fitness info.

Hello dear members,

I'm not actually new to SP but have been gone for approximately 3 years ..... I think. The site seems almost unrecognizable to me, but I expect to pick it up soon and love SP every bit as much as I once did.

I'll be 70 years of age in June, so thought I may as well join this group now as then. :o) Since I was last on SP, I seem to have developed (or it has become more acute) a lower back issue. What a struggle it's been. Yeee-ouch! So far, I've had 2 of 3 epidurals planned. To celebrate my SP return, this afternoon I will be visiting our local recreation center and sign up for a water aerobics class. That will be my exercise commitment. In addition, I will be drinking 8 glasses of water/day. I'm on my third at present. Now I need to look at my diet.

Cheers and warm wishes to all the dear members of this team.

Welcome Flo. I lurked on this site for a year before I got down to business. Great site, we just have to learn to be more patient with our selves. Learning to disapline our selves after all the years of just plain eating anything in site is difficult. Don't give up, hugs and blessings to you................ emoticon

Hi VDALE4
As one of the leaders of the Classy 70's I would like to welcome you to our team.
It sounds like you are already doing things right with all the exercise. Keep up the good work.
Perhaps you can spur on others in our team who have been sleeping for awhile. (smile)
It seems we all have our days or weeks that we slip up but we need to keep focused in order to stay healthy.
If I can help in any way, please let me know.
Have a blessed week.
Jean (2BEATIT1)

Hi New Spark Team, I've been on Sparks for 4 or 5 years but since I will be turning 72 in Jan. thought I would join this new team to see how busy and active, those of you in your 70's are. Looks like there are lots of busy people here. I am thinking about buying a balancing board and would like to hear some suggestion on what the best kind I should purchase. I'm pretty active, and have my own little gym with a treadmill, weight machine, total gym, stepper machine, and an exercise bike. We have a pool, that I use lots in the summer and a sauna and spa in the winter. I pretty much love all the machines, but I love to get out and just walk with my daughter and our two dogs, plus they love the walks. I hope over some time to get to know some of you more personally. emoticon Virginia

My name is MaryLou and I just found this team. I will be 71 on December 28th. I'm in good health and exercise 5 to 6 times a week. My husband and I will celebrate our 50th Anniversary on November 10, 2012. We have 3 sons (who are married) and 4 grandchildren (2 boys and 2 girls). We have lived in Allen Park, MI for almost 47 years. We also have a home on Mullett Lake in Indian River, MI and spend a lot of time there in the summer.

Good Morning. My name is Nancy, I'm 70 and will be retiring at the end of this month. I decided I needed to get into better shape so I could truly enjoy my retirement. My retirement gift to myself will be a trip to Costa Rica for approximately two months to just enjoy the beauty of the country. I found this site approximately a week and a half ago.....and it is overwhelming. So I decided I would just start with tracking my food. Slowly I hope to see more of this site.

Hi.

I am a 74 year old reitred woman from Los Angeles. I live alone with my sweet dog, Teddy, a 3 year old Cavalier King Charles with diabetes. I have 2 married sons and they have, between them three grandsons, a granddaugther and two step-grandsons ages 16-21.
.
I have only been dieting this time for the past 3 days and have lost about 1/2 lb. so far. I have lost and gained 100's of lbs in the past 35 years. But I hope this time, I can make it happen and stick. I have no physical ailments except the weight. I used to have pre-diabetes and hypothyroid disease, but with the help of my holistic doctor, etc., I overcame them both. So my only problem is my weight. And of course, my main form of socializing is to eat out with friends once or twice a week. I have three meals coming up starting tomorrow through Tuesday so it will be a challenge. I live on social security so don't have a lot of money to spend which is a shame as I love to travel.

Looking forward to joining everyone.

Kathleen

Hi , A Big Welcome to OKIAMWHAT18

This is a great team. We are a friendly, caring and loving crowd, all try hard to live a healthy and fit life and lose weight.
We can do it, we have proved it, and you can do it too.
We are assorted ages over 70 and some of us are amazing, but actually we all are.
Please feel free to jump in on our conversations and tell us about yourself.
You also need to open a Spark Page for yourself and let us in.
You will make a lot of new friends
We look forward to hearing from you

Hugs
Jean and Lee

It all depends on me!!

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."

Hi Norma Jean,
Wow that was Maralyn Monroe's real name, Welcome.
I myself live in Verona, just outside Madison, Wisconsin, and Joan lives in Appleton.
I think Joan is closer to you than I am, but I hope you are keeping warm.
Joan and her family are Avid Packers fans, but I guess we will all be glued to the TV tomorrow...
I really hope we can help you get those pounds off, it is hard work, and some of us struggle more than others, but most of us have already lost a substantial ammount, but still trying to reach goals.
We do have some members that have already reached goal, and are maintaining well, and we are very proud of them.
Remember Summer is coming, when we want to look and feel good about ourselves.
So hang in there, and we will do our best to motivate you.



Jean..... I hope that the fact that you are on here today, means you are feeling better. I know it is hard for you to stay off here , lol, lol,
Seriously, I really hope you are on the mend, although that kind of Flu does take it's time to go away. Please take care of yourself. We need you here , BUT WELL, AND IN GOOD HEALTH.!!!
I am watching you, and I will scold you, if I think it is neccesary.
BIG SISTER IS WATCHING YOU Ha Ha, lol,lol.

Everyone else if you are feeling under the weather, get well soon, keep warm.
Spring will be here soon!!!

Love and warm hugs
Lee

Good Morning!
I have returned to Sparkpeople to take off the first 20 pounds of the 50 pounds I should lose.
I gained these last 20 from stress and anxiety from all my husband's health issues in the last
3 years. I'm 70 years young, have one loving, married daughter who lives in Maryland.
I'm from Northeast Wisconsin and right now, everything up here is all about the Green Bay Packers and the Super Bowl tomorrow.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and get some expert advice on losing weight and keeping it off.

Hi Thelma,
You may have misunderstood, but one of my cousins has already done the Family tree, and that is how he found me after 50 yrs, and I am now in contact with him and other cousins. It is great, He only managed to go back to the 1700's, as our Ancestors came from Russia, but we have got lots of photo's from way back, of Great, Great Grandparents, and uncles etc. It certainly is fascinating.

I don't know if you know, but you don't have to stay on this Thread, you can go to Lets have a cozy chat over a cuppa Tea, it's something like that, and you will get to join in chats with lots of Spark friends.
See you there
Love Lee

Hi Lee,
I don't know if you are serious about looking at your family tree, or if you can get in touch with the ancesstry sites, but it is well worth the effort if you are. There is a site called Ancestry.com this one has to be paid for, but there is another site called www.ancestryaid.co.uk which is a private site run by a family and it's free. I know there is a lady from Australia on it, so it may be possible for you to access it. If you start with your name and your parents names, you may be able to take it further, if you do I wish you luck, it's very interesting.

Hi Thelma,
I always wanted to see my Mother's & Father's family tree but with them gone and no relatives to ask, it is difficult to get the info I need to track down Scottish names like McDonald, and Turnbull. They are as common there as Smith is here. And then as you know, if you don't know what Parish they are from, the task seems impossible.

Hi Lee,
Thank you for your Christmas wish, and I return it to you and best wishes for a Happy New Year.
I too am doing my Family Tree on my Mother's side, I have taken it back to the 1500's, although it gets quite sparse the further you go back.
Take care.

Hi Thelma,

I was born and raised in London, then after I was married lived in various different parts.
before moving here in 1987 we lived in Milton Keynes , the new City they built to take the overflow from London.
Actually it was quite Americanised.

How nice that you live near the beach, I love the Sea and the coast.
At the end of last year, I was re-united with 4 cousins and their families that I haven't heard from for approx 50 yrs. One of them was doing the Family Tree. They all live in England except for one who now lives in the South of France.
I am in constant contact with them and it is so exciting,.
I live in Wisconsin now, and we haven't seen Snow since we were in England, but never as much as we have here. But I do like it.

It is still early, but have a wonderful Christmas
Love Lee

Hi Lee,
I'm from Yorkshire, Bridlington on the East Coast, about a mile from the sea, and love to walk on the sea front when the weather is fine, not much chance at the moment though, we have been confined to our home for the last two weeks with snow, I live down a long road and in a private gated community, and as we are mostly in our later years the snow has not been moved and the gritters don't know we are here, but thankfully I managed to shop before we were confined, so we have plenty of food and I bake my own bread so that isn't a problem. Where were you when you were over here?
Luv Thelma

Welcome Thelma emoticon

I'm not sure what our team will become with 2 from England ---and several from Canada. It gets to be educational beyond the usual Spark format when others share with us.

It all depends on me!!

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
-Barbara Cage

Welcome emoticon
We are your new emoticon 's and all here for you. I am also one of the co-leaders of this group so as a leader, allow me to give you a special welcome.

As you familiarize yourself with all the tools available to you, you will be amazed and find lots of help in any area of your journey.
If you haven't already done so, I would recommend you do a personal spark page and start inviting friends to your site. They will be an endless source of help to you along your journey. Also logging everyday and having a healthy breakfast goes a long way in your success on your journey.
If you have a chance please read my bio as I share about the challenges this 70 year old gal had before starting Spark People. I know you will do fine as you use the tools available to you.

Be blessed
Jean your emoticon emoticon

Linda, I apologize for calling you Molly on the welcome thread for you ~ I was going by your Username.

Yes, Spark People is the best site on the net and you'll find many, many lovely friends here. The best part is that we are all battling the same battle and we give and receive so much encouragement from one another!

I'm not a traveler, my husband has not been well in over a year, but I'm sure others will relate to traveling as you do.

Welcome to the team!

Hello all! My name is Linda and I have just found the SparkPeople web site. I recently celebrated my 72nd birthday and have this past year been dealing with some health issues that are the result of too many poor life style choices. Living in a small rural community in West TN makes getting involved in support groups a bit challenging; but, clearly here are some wonderful folks who are already reaching out with warm words of welcome and encouragement. I look forward to getting to know you better as I work really hard to lose 20 pounds that I've put on very quickly in the past 3 months. I'm also frustrated that my low energy level is impacting some of my travel plans but feel if I can get this weight under control and really get serious about the fitness plan, I shall be ready to hit the road again. Travel is one of my passions. Any other Travelers out there?
Blessings to all of you. Linda

Hi,
I am new to this group and will be 70 next month.
I live in Western Canada (British Columbia)
Have 2 kids and 3 grandkids in Ontario (3000 miles away).
Will eventually move closer to them but for now doing volunteer mission work for our pastor.
God bless
Jean

Hi Wilma, I am so sorry I confused you. If you go to our Team page you will get all the answers.

When I was a little girl ( a very long time ago )
my mother used to use sour milk to make cream cheese, she put it in a sort of cheese cloth sack and hung it over the kitchen sink. This might sound horrible, but it was actually very good.

I was wondering who Dee was. I figured I had forgotten my friend's name. I understand the busy day excuse. My best friend put milk away in the cupboard. Now she is trying to find recipes to use sour milk emoticon
So-what's the challenge? I'll see if I can find out on the team page.

Hi Wilma, I am so sorry, I seem to have got you confused with another new member. I realize Dee isn't actually your friend, but I am sure she will be before long, and also you don't live in Wisconsin.
I'm sorry, It't been a busy day and I think my brain went to sleep. Anyway we still are glad you are here, and we are going to have lots of fun.
Please forgive me.

Hi Wilma,
Welcome to our team, I am so happy you decided to join us. You are going to love this team, I just know we can motivate you and help you to get those pounds off once and for all.
I am the same age as you 71yrs young, and have been fighting this battle since my 1st pregnancy, we all seem to be in the same boat.
Right now we have a new challenge just started, and other motivational challenges, thought up by your friend Dee, she is amazing. I know she is excited to see you here.
Why don't you join us and get in at the beginning, it is going to be so much fun. We can do it together.

I also live in Wisconsin, a little West outside Madison, where do live?
Anyway Welcome again, come in and see us often, we will look forward to it.

Love Lee

Hi folks, My real name is Wilma. I'm 71 and been here for 3 years. I think I started at 220 and now I'm 190. Feeling good about it, but would really like to get down to 160. I guess I'm complacent because it's so much better than my high of 250. And I wasn't even pregnant.

emoticon for your warm welcoming words. I will try to sty in touch if nothing more than on the Huddle. I invite everyone to read my Spark page. I also do aquaroebics 4 days a week & I drive a vision impaired friend anytime she needs me. We are very active in the Lions club & I still try to make time for my special hobbies. I have been with this team since last December & you are right. A very warm group. I will be seeing you sparking around, I am sure. emoticon

Happy
