I just noticed your post, Marree, and would like to welcome you to our team. I'm hoping you will join in on the fun by posting on some of our games and questions that are on-going. And it's helpful too, SP says people who participate are more likely to lose weight.
Washington state is a nice place to live -- and it's where my sister lives also. If I ever get there to visit her, perhaps I can meet you as well. We do have a sign-up for what state you live in and another to list when your birthday is.
You're right when you say it's hard to lose, but at least you have the time to exercise. I'd start out with walking if I were you, as it's a good Cardio and you don't have to buy anything special to do it.

Hi, This is my first day with Spark People.....I am a 66 year "young" lady living in Washington state. I am wanting to lose 85 lbs. and it is not easy!! I lost my job four and a half years ago, and am now retired and have way to much time on my hands! I am a mother of five (5) grown kids, have fifteen (15) Grandchildren and two (2) Great-Grandsons. I am also divorced and live by myself, which is very nice. I look forward to hearing from some of you that want to share. Take care, Marree
