Hi, I'm Linda and I am 62yrs old. I have high blood presure and the beginnings of diabetes. My top weight was 297 and I am now at 265. 32lbs down! I work on my new elliptical and take an aquasize class, low impact, for 3 hrs a week. 1 hr per class. I need to get physically fit enough to walk a mile in September. I want to walk with my sons and daughter-in-laws in the Race for the Cure for cancer. We will all wear t-shirts with my Mothers name on them. We will walk in memory of her. We lost her about 4 years ago to cancer after a long and very curageous fight. My youngest son challenged me to do this and he and his wife bought a treadmill for me at Christmas. I want to live to see my grandchildren and be able to play with them.


Well I finished the race and did the mile walk, thanks to all of my friends here in Spark People. I am now trying to lose more weight for my son's wedding in June 09. It helps to have a goal to reach for.
I hope to get back into water aerobics and maybe get a bike that I can ride. Of course when the weather gets better here I will get back into walking!!
Onward and Upward or should I say Downward with the weight!! lol

    Congrats Grandma !!! Your family is growing fast.
    That is great you had your little princess for a day.
    Oh you are going to miss your family when they go to Japan. I hope you have web cam or something on your computer so you can talk and see them.
    Oscar is a Bichon/Maltese and is 12 weeks old. He is keeping me busy.
    Take care Mary :)

    Thanks Linda for the crown. I will wear it proudly.
    Congrats on your granddaugher. Can't wait for pictures. Now you have a princess and prince to spoil. Is this Owen's sister or cousin?
    Happy Mother's Day.

    Hi Linda
    I finished my SIL's socks and am working on the baby blanket.
    I am using the soft yarn so it is cuddly.
    Hope you got Owen's mitts done.
    Take care and have a great weekend.

    Hi Linda
    Well I never did figure out that baby blanket pattern so there must have been something wrong with it. I started a different pattern I had here.
    Also started another pair of socks for my son-in-law since he likes the first pair. That should keep me busy for awhile.
    I loss 2 lbs in the hospital and have loss another 3 since coming home.
    Of course once I start execising I will gain them back since muscle weighs more.
    Take care
    Mary :)
