I think it is harder to get use to being retired than it looks from the "outside". I'm only 59 and am still, after 5 years, trying to find my rhythm. My husband didn't retire until a couple years after me too. Mine, however, does have a weight problem (worse than mine) so I'm "comfortable" in that way, other than that he looks to me to guide us both which is almost like being on one's own.

There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward. ~John Mortimer

Dee! Welcome to Retired Seniors! I think it is just terrific that you get to the gym three times each week and the fact that you go with your husband is even better. Although he has no weight issues it sounds like he could be a good "buddy" to help you lose your weight. If not -- choose someone on one of your teams and see if they could be your mentor or Spark Buddy. Keep in close touch, daily if possible and keep track of one another. When you are responsible to another person it is easier to stay motivated. And you want to report good news, like the scale going down a half pound, rather than the other way around.

Good luck, and thanks for joining in. Eve

Trying to find the silver lining in all the clouds!

Hello All
My name is Dee and I have been on SP since 2006 but have no AHA moments as I go back and forth like a yo-yo and I sign in and out the same way! I need a partner or someone to keep me motivated! I have been retired for three yrs and when I retired I married after being divorced for over 20 yrs and I thought I was going to risde off in the sunset but no way! he is still working and will retire in the next two years! He has no weight problem but I do! I am such a weakling when it comes to sticking to a plan and being motivated. I go to the gym three times with my husband that is each week we just started back doing this as my bloos pressure has been up and down so please any advice please let me know!
thanks Dee emoticon

Ms. Dee
