Thank you, Marsha. I'm grateful to hear from you. I didn't know if anyone was left on this site or not. I'm also blessed with a fabulous son who comes over and takes care of my lawn and things in the house. Don't know what I'd do without him.

I'm trying my best to stay positive and pray for a better tomorrow.

Hugs,
Renie

Renie, yes I wish we could get this going. I just don't have the time to be a leader, or co-leader. DH's health is not good, and just about everything falls on my shoulders. We are blessed with a wonderful Son that helps each week with the yard, and whatever we need. He has been re-organizing the garage. DH kept everything, and there is a time when it has to go.
Good hearing from you, and let's stay in touch.
Have a great week, and pray that your health improves. I have been under the weather today with stomach problems, it does feel better tonight.

Looks like we are taking one step forward and two steps back. I admit that I've had so many health problems, I haven't had time to keep up. It's also sad that we still don't have a leader.

I've had interaction with the local Silver Sneakers but haven't been successful at getting over to the spa. Maybe we can get this Team going again.

Hugs,

I finally made contact with one of the local Silver Sneakers and immediately got sick before I could go check them out. What a drag.

I'm sure this will end soon and I can take the tour.

Thank you, Marsha. I may have to go to the health food store and get some non-medicinal iodine. I was so sick with getting antibiotic, thrush, steroid meds, I didn't think I'd ever get better. I swore I'd never that them again. You guessed it: I took an antibiodic a couple of weeks ago. Some people never learn. Sigh ...

Thank you, emoticon

Hello, everyone. I'm doing okay today. Those of us in northern Utah don't know what to make of our weather. It's sunshine one day, and snowing the next. I'm off kilter today and feel a little sick. I'm sure I'll make a turn around soon.

I've enjoyed everyone's comments. It makes life easier. I wonder if it would help me to go get some steel-toes shoes? emoticon

Hang in there, y'all,

Sandi, good to hear from you. Just check in when you can. You are doing great with your weight loss. I am at a stand still, seems no matter how much, or how little I eat I just have hit a plateau.

I just had a small nap, it is beautiful here in Florida. I love this time of year, and Spring has Sprung. :)

Happy Saturday everyone! sorry I haven't been on for a few days but have been busy at work and tired when I get home, lol. I work full-time in a factory and they have been running us ragged in the wrap station, lol.
slow is good. I also think we reach plateaus and get "stuck". I dealt with that for 3 months at one time, but it started coming off slowly again. Have lost 35 pounds since Oct 2010 which I am perfectly satisfied with. Any pound lost no matter how slowly is a winnier with me!
i use my own diet - modified Atkins - and use the nutrition track and the exercise tracker also. I wear a pedometer at home and at work. A busy nite at work gives my about 15000 steps which i figure is enough exercise for anoyne, lol. I also do seated leg lifts at work which s elping me buile leg strengh. Have built-in weights as I wear steel-toed shoes.
Everyone have a great weekend!

Yahooo! We're on a roll here. I did check out where our local Silver Sneakers facility is. I've sent an email to ask them about joining.

Yes, I have followed the Nutrition Tracker on the Home tab. I know I've really made a difference in the way I eat and the choices I've made. My weight loss may be slow, but that's best when making a new Lifestyle.

We can do it, Ladies. emoticon

We need some young blood here to keep us going. :) There are all ages at the Silver Sneakers, and if anyone is on disability they can also join.

I worked for an Insurance company for 31 1/2 years, then retired 1 year, and worked as a Adm. Ass;t for 5 years part time. I miss my part-time job, and wish I had it today. I have enough on my plate right now as DH will be 84 in August, and is limited in what he can do. He gave up driving about a year ago so I have to do all the driving here and there.
Have a great Sunday. I am headed to bed, our Son and his lady friend was here this afternoon, he will be back Fri. to take our Sheltie to be groomed, and then come back here to mow and try to get the oak leaves off the pool cage roof.

To lose the weight did you go by Spark's menus? Just curious. I haven't done that, and am kinda at a standstill right now.

Hi, and thank you both for the welcome. Sounds like I'm the baby of the group, he he. I just turned 66 this month and am waiting for my insurance card to come so I can officially join silver Sneakers!
I'm a wife of 40 years, mom of 2, grandmother to 4, and will be a great-grandmother ins August!
I am still working and will probably continue to do so for a while. I work in a factory where ages doesn't seem to be a problem. We have people in their 70's working there, believe it or not!
DH is retired and is 73. He still takes care of our acre yard and has a large garden. My adugher lives close to us and my son lives about 3 hours away. Grandkids are all close and my oldest granddaughter who is 20 is presenting me with a great-granddaughter in late July or early August.
I have both a Curves and a gym here where I live, which is just nrth of Nashville, TN. I wish there was a Y closer as I used to love to swim. Closest is aout 30 minutes away.
I love to read, crochet, embroider and be on my computer.
I have belonged to Sparkpeople about a year and a half now and have lost about 30 pounds but like to lose at least 30 more. have always wanted to be able to go to a gym but have never been able to afford it so Silver Sneakers is perfect for me.
When I join Silver Sneakers I will definitely pass the word on. Again thank you for the welcome!

Welcome Sandi, we are just trying to get this group going so if you know any other Silver Sneakers please spread the word. I live in Tampa, FL. I belong to the "Y", and also Curves, but Curves is too far for me to drive. I will be 80 in August. OUCH!!

Jump right in and share about you and your family.
We have been married 61 years, have a Son that will be 60 in August, 2 Grandchildren, and 6 Great Grandchildren.

Hi, Sandy, and thanks for joining our forum. I've got to get busy and find where my closes Silver Sneakers is located so when my foot heals from its burns, I can swim too. In fact, you've inspired me to go look it up right NOW!

Hi, I'm Sandi from Tennessee. Am getting ready to join Silver Sneakers as soon as I get my insurance card. Luckily there are 2 facilities I can join here in northern "Tennessee. Wish there was a Y closer so I could swim..

Helloooo. Good to hear from you. Yes, it would be nice to have a few more members. I've had a few problems with my thumb, wrist, and left foot. However, I think I'm finally on the right trail with getting them healed and back on a healthy track.

I'm worn out too, so I'll be going to bed here soon.

Good morning Renie, the YMCA, Lifestyles, Curves, Balli's all here have a Silver Sneaker program. I belonged to Curves, but 2 went out of business, and the other one is too far for me to drive. I will be 80 in Aug. DH doesn't drive anymore as he will be 84 and not in the best of health. I am starting back tomorrow at the "Y" for the Silver Sneakers exercise. You can use all of their machines there. We have Humana Insurance and they pay for everything.
So why not take advantage of it? ;)

Have a great day. We will be watching church on TV.

That's fine with me. I just noticed the original post was made last October. emoticon

I've got to find out where the Silver Sneakers is located here. I found it once and then before I could make it in, that one was closed down.

My neighbor and I went on a long walk today. It was great and we spent a fun time together. We've both had health problems and need to walk to get things operating the way they should and get healthy. She's not fat like me, but needs the exercise.

Hope to hear from you again soon. emoticon

Good evening, I went to the "Y" this morning and picked up the March Calendar for Senior Sneakers. I am looking forward to going Monday morning for the class. Been awhile since I have gone as my husband isn't real well. I do need to get out, and it will do me good.
Hope everyone has a good night's rest.
Hope someone will come forward and be a leader, I just have to much on my plate right now, but would be glad to help in any way I can.

I just noticed that the leader of this group is not participating, so sad. I don't have time with DH sick, but if anyone would like to take it over it would be great. I love the Silver Sneakers' program and it has so much to offer us Seniors and we should all take advantage of it.

My Curves called me this week asking where I had been, and also the "Y". With DH's doctor's appts, etc, this week he has a colonopisy(sp), I am praying things will slow down soon.

Hugs and prayers to all.
Marsha
