Hello....I live in the Denver, Colorado metro area. I am 51 and a widow with 2 grown sons. My oldest flew the nest 6 years ago and my youngest is still living with me. I also have a son in heaven. I am owned by 4 grandkitty babies.

My dietician suggested Sparkpeople to me to help me along my weight loss journey. I joined about 10 days ago and I am loving it here.

I began to gain weight after the loss of my husband in 2001. At my highest weight I needed to lose 100 pounds. I joined Weight Watchers a year ago and I am on the green plan, since beginning the journey there I have lost 27 pounds. My long term goal is to lose another 73 pounds.

I have quite a few health conditions that most of the time makes exercise difficult. I have started out with just taking walks when I can. I found chair exercises here on Sparkpeople and I am so excited that I found them, there is still hope for me to reach my long term goal!

I have joined the Biggest Loser Winter Challenge and I am on the Pink Flamingos Winter Warrior team! I hope the challenge will help motivate me as well as something to help keep me accountable.

I am also on the waiting list for the 2021 Winter 5% Challenge.

I have joined a 42 day Reset Challenge at a local gym that begins January 4th!

    emoticon I hope you had a good day today. All is well here. Hubby and I are hunkered down and staying well through this pandemic. We are retired, but feel for those who have lost jobs and are struggling during this time. I do a lot of Sudoku puzzles, make masks for the family and ourselves, cook, clean and generally try to keep busy as this seems to improve my outlook on life. I recently subscribed to the New York Times so that I could better keep informed of what is going on in the world right now. These are certainly momentous times we’re living in! I have 2 grown daughters. The eldest and her husband and two growing boys live nearby (SF Bay Area East Bay) and our youngest daughter and husband have a 9 month old boy and are living in Georgia. We’re very glad for face-time because we’re getting to see him growing up...big changes from week to week. I love the team you joined and I think I will join it too. I suffer from depression, anxiety and am recovering from PTSD. I absolutely adore cats, but cannot adopt any because my DH is quite allergic to them. I will enjoy yours! Take care. Rani. ☺️ 🦔🍂🍁
