Hi am now 62 years old and feeling it. I am starting over again with Spark People after being away for a couple of years. I want to lose the weight I have gained back and kick start living again....

I am a horseback riding instructor with my own barn in Scottsville NY. Mother of 2 older girls. One is married with a son and the other was married on June 21 of 2009 . She just had her first son 5/9/11.

In 2009 I had finally decided that I need a lifestyle change, not just a diet.

I gained lots back and now need to change my life again. Hope my depression doesn't get in the way. :(

    Welcome to the S.L. Ten Day BUDDY Challenge. The name of your Buddy is: MCBETH. Go back to the sign up thread and click on her page. I recommend that you bookmark it in your computer so it will be easier to get to it each day of the challenge. Also, it will be good if you can do Day 1, Day 2 and soon I'll be posting Day 3 of the challenge. It should not take you long to catch up and it will be helpful for you to get to know your Buddy.

    Hi there...Yes I definitely took a few months off. Just getting back into it. I definitely missed talking to everyone and seeing how everyone is doing. How have you been?
