I am a 58 year old who has had weight issues for most of my life (actually Mom used to say I was the cutest little butterball - so I would say all my life) I have had some successes, but they were temporary.
This time I hope to make it a lifestyle, to overcome the momentary failures, and keep moving forward - as I read here two steps forward and one step back is still forward motion, as long as you don't give up!
UPDATE! Guess who gave up!%^&%$%^ -
So now I am a 67 year old -who had enormous success with Sparkpeople in 2010, losing 70 pounds - and then I got cocky/lazy (gads- I don't know what it was!!!) and quit trying, quit caring (quit caring enough) but I am back! I was watching a you tube video last night about an 80+ year old who started working out late in life, and now she lifts weights - her body looks no older than 45, and she is strong!!!! Her message is that anyone can do it and it is NEVER too late
Please pray for me - send good thoughts my way - I will do the same for all of you!

    Thanks for adding me as a Spark Friend. It's a great way to keep in touch and follow you on the Spark Friend Feed. How's it going with you? I see your weight ticker is moving down! Great job!

    I love your upbeat "take" on snow shoveling! Living in Wisconsin, we get our share, but I dislike the cold and prefer to watch as hubby shovels or (when we're really lucky) the neighbor help with his snowblower!

    Here's to a good week!

    PS: I added you as a SparkleFriend -- hope you don't mind.

    Hello and emoticon to Spark People. I have also had weight problems all my life and I am tired of losing weight only to gain it back again. This time I am using SP to reach my goal and live the rest of my life without gaining the weight back. If you're looking for a Buddy, feel free to contact me!
