Here it is May, 2018.

I am a 72 year old wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and soon to be a great grandmother, aunt, great aunt, great great aunt, friend and fun loving person.

I need to readjust my eating habits.

Twelve years ago I reached my goal of 160. I need to get there again.

I did it with Sparkpeople and weight watchers.

I would walk a lot and had a lot more energy. This time
I will have to pace the walking. These old knees aren't what they use to be.

My knees are painful and I know the weight has a lot to do with it. Two (2) of my brothers and one (1) sister had knee replacements a year ago. I don't want to go through that.

I fell four (4) years ago and fell on my knees . That didn't help the situation. I broke my nose, my elbow and tore my rotor cuff. I also had two major operations and pulled thru both
quite well.

I know what I have to do to lose the weight, so I am going to
do it again with the help of Sparkpeople and all my friends
on Sparkpeople who helped me do it before.

    Hi Gayle,

    It's been a long time and was glad to hear from you. I'm not on here much but I do get on to track, check messages and occasionally post. Please stay in touch.

    hugs.....Mary Anne

    Hi Gayle,
    If your question about the Spark points is about the Fitness Minutes points, it will happen automatically when you post your minutes in the tracker.
    I get about 11 points for walking 3 miles. But even at shorter distances, they do add up.
    After you track your minutes, go to My Tracker. Then to My Sparkpoints and check where it says Fitness Minutes and you'll see how many you got for the walk.

    Hi Gayle,

    Welcome to the Slimming Senior's Team! I think you and I used to be on another team together (maybe with the number 60 in the title?)
    I don't post as much as I should but I do read the posts on our Gen Chat and Weight Loss threads every day.
    I hope the Slimming Seniors team works for you. It's the only team I'm on now and I'm very happy with it.

    Take care,
    Grace from Slimming Seniors
