By making the decision to live a healthier lifestyle: You will be healthier and happier as well as add years to your life; you will be stronger and have more stamina; you will lose inches as you gain muscle (which weighs more than fat); you will lose weight and be able to wear smaller sizes. You will benefit, in so many ways, by making better choices for yourself.
Be proud of yourself for making the decision and living a healthier lifestyle, Mandy

Hi Rose, I too am new to SP and looking forward to a positive journey with the Lord as my guide in losing 30+ pounds. I am a Cdn. staying in MB for a couple of months away from the freezing temps back home. Last year I gained weight while I was here and don't want to do that again. 2007 is my year for change! I will succeed, because God's promises are new every morning. Start each day with Him, and we cannot fail.

Welcome, from NC, also new to this site,still trying to get pics from my Kodac site to my blog page. 2'nd blog page posted resubscribe to get mail from sparkspeople. Listed now as Ncgrandkids4me -bbthom1. This site is already getting me inspired to return to weight watchers(lifetime). I lost extra weight once before but now that I'm older (65) it seems harder. Hubby and my girls give me lots of encouragements. Would like to correspond with other weight watchers members(flex plan). I see they have a new plan now.

Welcome Rose! You will find many new friends and great support here. It's a wonderful place to start your day. I can't do anything else until I check in with SP! Congrats on the weight loss thus far and continued success to you! I, too love being over 50. My priorities are straight and I'm no longer influenced by what others think! Have a healthy, happy day!

You wouldn't worry so much what people thought of you if you knew how seldom they did!
The true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him no good.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Welcome! Great support, great ideas, great people.

I am 50 years old and I will be 51 April 4th. It's neat to know that they have a website for this age group. I just wanted to introduce myself and invite others to go to my Spark Page. I've recently lost 13 pound on weight watchers and it's not really a diet for me but a healthy nutritional lifestyle. in which I love the Lord and he is very important to me daily.I think 50 is great and has turned many positive new leafs in my life. I hope to get to know some of you. Sometimes it takes awhile for me to get back because of my family and CFS, but I'm making progress. I'm a determined person and tend to be hard on myself so I don't sit around and wait for results to come to me. Anyways, I just wanted to introduce myself.
