Hi, I am a 65-year old resident of sunny Florida. I am retired and spend much of my time doing volunteer work, especially through my church. I love music, reading and movies (all kinds of sedentary activities except watching sports).

I have struggled with my weight all my adult life. My weight yo-yo'ed until I retired, when I basically gave up trying to control it, even after I was diagnosed with Diabetes. My excess weight has also ruined my knees.

When I discovered SparkPeople in mid-March 2012, I was at my heaviest weight ever. Finding SparkPeople was a gift from God; I now have hope that I can control my weight instead of it controlling me.

Member Since: 3/10/2012

Fitness Minutes: 1,017

My Goals:
To cultivate a healthy lifestyle

To develop an appreciation for exercise (when it comes to exercise, I'm a real Mark Twain.)

To lose S-L-O-W-L-Y down to my goal weight

My Program:
I use the food tracker to plan my meals for each day and then update it at the end of the day if I made any changes.

I do chair exercises.

I always lose very slowly, so I consider it a success if I eat properly and exercise all week, whether I lose any weight or not.

Personal Information:
My name is Susan. I grew up in the Southeastern United States, lived all up and down the East coast as an adult; now live in Florida.

Other Information:
I love old movies (pre-1960); books, primarily fiction of all kinds except bodice-rippers; and music of most genres.

Although I've never lived in the western USA, I love the geography and the people there. My favorite western state is Wyoming.

    Hi Rhondda
    I can leave messages and get into your page - and since you are not a Sparkfriend that would mean that it isn't private!!
    I agree the instructions can be confusing - there is so much that you are trying to work out at the same time - but we can always sort you out if you get lost!!
    The fact you haven't had any feedback is my fault - you have slipped past my radar!! For that I am sorry!!
    But - hey!! I'm here now and will return - one day when you least expect it!!
