Updated 2019 -I am a retired Naval Officer. My husband and I moved to Montana from Hawaii in 1996. We live 11 miles outside of a town with a population of 96 in cattle and sheep ranch country. I garden and like computer games. I have had to give up knitting and needlepoint because of arthritis in my hands. There are no fitness clubs or facilities near by-the school gym has a weight room but very old equipment. I have a Wii Fit and a Golds Gym bike which I need to use. I like walking but winter around here makes it a little difficult. I also have COPD which sometimes limits my exercise. I have always struggled with weight. Since 2000, I have gained an average of 4 pounds per year. Now it all and more has to come off so I can be around to enjoy my children and grandchildren. I was with Fat Secret for a long time and got bored. I love SP. Since I started with SP I lost 25 pounds and then I gained it all back. Knowing I can do it is important. At age 68, it gets harder to lose and especially to get the exercise. I do get some walks in. I mostly exercise inside. My biggest challenge is over eating. My husband is on a 3 meal a day schedule when I would like to be on a 2 meal per day.My journey to weighing 175 pounds is started as of 9/1/2017.
