My name is Sue, I live in NC with my husband and a Jack Russell terrier.
I passed my 70th birthday recently and decided it is time to get myself out of this rut and do something about my weight.
Eight years ago I lost nearly 40 pounds and felt great but the pounds have been creeping back again.

I have three sons, all married and seven grandchildren, unfortunately none of them live in this area, yet. My youngest son and his family are planning to move closer to us this summer.

May 3, 2009 - I first joined SP sometime in 2008 and never looked at it again until February this year when I joined the 70 and over group. Since then I have been "watching what I eat" and have done well with drinking my water but still resistant to exercise. Following the lead of several others in the group I joined the Swimsuit challenge and today I completed my first exercise of the challenge. My goal is to lose ten pounds during this challenge, I think that may be too optimistic but it is something to aim for.

August 3, 2009 - My son and his family are in the process of moving to NC, they have been living with us for the past month and will move into their own house this weekend. They are renting a lovely home about an hour away from us. I am thrilled to finally have family close by. They have three little boys, it reminds me of raising my own three boys so many years ago.
