Hi my name is Chris, I'm 60 yrs old. I have two grow kids (One of each).a Grand mother of 7 girls,2 grandsons.Ive been on SP, as of November 21,2006. ..Ive lost total loss 226 lbs!!!! & kept it off 15 yrs.Im very consistant with exercise & a very healthy lifestyle. I never go below 1200 calories a day or over 1500 & I get at the least 8 hours of sleep a night. There is no SUCH THING AS DIETS!!! Its a way of life YOU have to continue it to remain healthy. Im very much into running on my mill & strength training.Also LOVE my Bowflex Treadclimber.. Hey keeps me young.. I weigh in at 120lbs-THATS over 27lbs lost with Sparkpeople!!! I also now wear a size 0-2!!!! in jeans or dress pants, a x-small top...I tell everyone to never give up cause YOU can do it!!!.. Be committed to you be your own best friend. Like I say "No one can do it for you but you"Now get up & get that Beautiful body moving cause a new you is waiting!!I'm here for you all!!

If ya noticed the scale has upped a little on my weight counter due too I'm strength training & I have to build muscle so I don't look scary skinny!!.. That's not a healthy way to be... I still wear all my clothing.. ALL have to remember that muscle is lean & weights in more than fat so I am welcoming the more improved me!!.. I feel GREAT!!!!
OMG!!! SECOND TIME being MOD!!! WOOHOO!! Thanks all!!

Well I'm another year older & I don't feel like a 51 yr old I feel so much YOUNGER!!
I feel like I'm still in my 20's BUT got to avoid mirrors!!!

WOOHOO!!!! I DID IT!!!!!(3/29/2010)
YES I did 100 thousand fitness minutes!
I love & I look VERY forward to getting my workouts in daily, being very consistant with my workouts & my healthy eating is the key to keeping me healthy!
My Uncle is 92yrs young & he is still exercising everyday! He has no health issues & the Dr's said what ever he is doing to keep himself as healthy as he is to never stop.
I feel the same way,I NEVER want to STOP!
Never ever Dreamed I would be like I am today!

Never ever give up on you, cause YES you can do it!;-)

    Congrats on being a Motivation Speaker .
    Although I have been on Spark for 9 years, I always like reading others stories.
    We all travel a road to a better place, it's how we cope is interesting.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
