I am a nurse in Virginia who has practiced for more than 30 years and am feeling the effects. Joint and back pain. I would like to blame it on my job, but the truth is I am deconditioned, obese and weak.

1/1/2013---OK, New Years, Hmmmm I have never been into the Resolution thing. Just they way it falls I guess. I have been a Sparker for 3 years, lost 30 pounds and have managed to find it again. Bummer...If I don't do something, and soon, I will be disabled. I am 61 and can feel a miserable future around the corner in a few years. Time for me to choose!!! Go back Chris and look in that mirror sideways again...that will motivate you!!

SparkPeople is the only place where you can be called a loser and you end up thanking someone!

    Hello, You may not remember me but my daughter and I started in August of 2009 and by May of 2010 we were off the grid so to speak. Well here it is the end of February 2013 and I am more than 30 lbs heavier than when I left. I need much help and encouragement as I am now 62, less active, and feel like Why is near the end of life anyway.....I need to stop thinking like this! I sure hope you are still here. emoticon
