I am 58 and starting my weight loss over again. Health is just as important as weight to me. I am doing the Intermittent Fasting (IF) on the 16/9 or 12/8 plan (but not the keto diet), and moving more toward veganism after being a vegetarian for years. I love Northern Soul dancing. Love films, art, and music. Practicing Mindfulness has changed my life - it helped radically heal my painful past and changed my dysfunctional thinking. I am looking for spark challenge buddies.
