I may be in the spotlight one day, so I really want to look good. I am almost 59 years old, so I want to retire as healthy and as active as I can be. I say life begins at 50, so I am really only 9 years old; just a babe. LOL. I am looking forward to doing a lot of things with my friends and family in the coming years and I need to be healthy for that. I still work, but look forward to relaxing and enjoying the second half of my life with a healthy outlook and a healthy body. I believe SparkPeople and it's community of supporters will be a great help to me. Thanks SparkPeople for this site!!

Member Since: 3/10/2012

Fitness Minutes: 540

My Goals:
I want to be an inspiration to others by taking small steps, as long as I do something almost every day; and reward myself and live life along the way. I would like to eventually get down to 140lbs. But I know that I need to work on my short term goals along the way to reach my ultimate goal.

My Program:
I have started again to walk on my treadmill at least 3 times a week. I try to lift small hand weights sometimes. I will soon be taking exercise classes at my church when time permits. I also am following the Spark People beginner's challenge. I walk outside when I have time.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I like to write and have published my first book of inspirational poetry in 2010. I have also submitted my second book for publication. It is my memoir. My family encouraged me to do it, telling me I had an interesting story to tell. I am going back to college as well to get a degree in administration. Even though I am almost 59 years old, I know I can do it. I hope to be an inspiration to others who feel like they have put their lives on the back burner to care for others or to just make it through life. We can do whatever we put our minds to; including losing weight and reaching our goals.

    emoticon Hello Sparkie emoticon dropping by with support and encouragement.........

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

    When the road you’re trudging seems all up-hill,

    When the funds are low emoticon and the debts are emoticon high,

    And you want to smile emoticon , but you have a sigh,

    When care is pressing you down a bit,

    Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

    Life is strange with its twists and turns,

    As every one of us sometimes learns,

    And many a failure turns about,

    When we might have won emoticon had we stuck it out;

    Don’t give up though the pace seems slow emoticon

    You may succeed with another blow,

    Success is failure turned inside out…

    The silver tint of the clouds emoticon of doubt,

    And you never can tell how close you are,

    It may be near when it seems so far;

    So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit…

    It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit Author Unknown
