Hi everyone,

I am a 66 year old living in Mississippi with my husband of 47 years. We have two grown children and two grandsons. I am wanting to do something to get out of the rut I'm in and am hoping that Sparkpeople will help me. Can't tell you how many diets I 've been on through the years but most very unsuccessful. What I really need to do is get off the "feast or famine" treadmill that I've been riding for way too long. In fact this time I'm determined to not make this a diet but rather a lifestyle. Any and all help from other fellow strugglers will be sincerely appreciated.

    Wow, you are doing great! I am new to sparks and still learning how to use it all. I am just beginning to use the teams and blogs. (new to me)
    I like your quote on your page about the 1,000 journey beginning with the FIRST step.
    It is a pleasure to meet you and wonderful to connect with other Christians like you.
    Keep pressing on in Christ.

    I saw your note about buying a pedometer on a thread and thought I'd drop by to say "me too!" I just started using one a couple days ago and am doing the same goal of 10K steps/day. When you're walking, I'm walking too! God bless....
