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.

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.

It's going to be a little different this time, however, because I am in my 70's now and won't lose it quickly.

    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “
