New to spark people. I have decided to be fit and fabulous by the age of fifty five- I am giving myself a litlle time to get there. I'm working out with a trainer so I won't hurt myself and avoiding the sugar.

Hi Laura, I'm just starting back on my journey and was doing really well with my walking, making sure that I didn't over do it by trying too much too fast yet here I sit with an ice pack on my knee as I type. I have a torn meniscus that rears it's ugly head every now and then. Hoping that it subsides soon and I can get back to walking. Meanwhile I have cut back a couple of hundred calories the last few days. ~ Shannon emoticon

June 1, 1961 (so I'm 6/1/61) :)

I have decided that this time, it's "for life." I'm not doing this to get in shape for a wedding, a trip, a "boy" LOL ... just life! Just me! Just forever. Because I want as much of the rest of my life I have left to be on my terms, feeling at the top of my game. We all deserve that!

I have a pair of skinny jeans (that don't yet fit me) hanging where I can see them in my workout area. They are looking more and more possible.

Hope you are well on your way to getting started on your weight lost journey. I finally decided it was time to get fit again. I want to climb Mt. Whitney with my husband for our 35th wedding anniversary so I have 2 years to reach my goal and get in shape. We hiked to the top of it for his 30th birthday back in 1987.

Menopause, diabetes, cholesterol .....aging is definitely not for the weak.
