Welcome back. The site can be temperamental; my daughter (also on Spark) suggested that anytime you get lost of confused, go back to your start page as most links are on there. It seems to work pretty well.

As for age, I am 66 and fighting a new round of an old weight battle. My husband, who follows my lead and is not on Spark, will be turning 78 this week. He has lost around 10-15 pounds in the last 5 months. Yes, it seems slow, but it's better than gaining.

Hang in there - this program really helps if you're willing to do the work. But there is a reason we are on the SLOWEST Loser team . . .

Oh my, yes, this site is so huge and difficult to navigate! This is like my third time back to it - but it gets easier each time, lol! I know there is a TON of support here, but I am still learning how to best access it - so I am right there with ya, Marv!

Nice to have you on the team and congrats on choosing to do something healthy for yourself. Remember it's not how many times you fall down, but how many times you get up.... as long as you're living and breathing, this journey is never over. That's why SP is about a healthy lifestyle and not about a diet.

Progress, not an Perfection....

Well, I'm knocking on 70 and having a go at losing weight again, after many tries and many tribulations and false starts. I know it is harder as you "mature" but we can still make a difference, it just takes a little longer.

Taking two steps forward and one step back is still progress!SP

Yes, what is it about trying to lose weight in our 60s. It is not easy!

I believe that each new day is a fresh start. Welcome back. Isn't it nice to know where to turn when a re-start is necessary. emoticon

Marv, I'm right there with you on losing weight in our 60s. It's HARD. And I started over a couple of months ago. We're right here with you. Welcome back.

Welcome back!

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Hi All, new "again" to SparkPeople. Find that I need to lose and just haven't been able to do it myself. Looking forward to the support this team seems to have for it's members, as well as offering support to those you want and need it. Being almost 63 is a challenge in itself when trying to lose weight, but I have hope. Thanks for letting me be a part of your group. emoticon
