Hi, My name is Suzy. After gaining about 30 pounds many years ago, I've lost and gained the same measley 5-10 pounds multiple times. Now I realize I'm not only overweight, but horribly unfit. . . .41% body fat and weak.

At 66. I've become the person I swore I would never be. YIKES, it's time to get serious.

UPDATE July 30, 2015. Since beginning SP in October, 2013, I've surprised myself by losing 16 pounds, 6 of the 16 this year. Plus, my body fat has lowered to 35%. My technique of recent months has been eating less and moving more. Not a structured exercise program, just moving when I would really prefer sitting (you know, couch potato style) along with walking most evenings. It's worked so far! My Spark Tracker has been a wonderful incentive by making filling up the circle of lights a daily goal. Working towards another 5 pounds by Christmas. I know that sounds like a small goal but it has doable potential.

My Goals:
Get physically fit. Firm up my fluffy pounds of popped popcorn into firm pounds of popcorn kernels. Losing body fat and inches is more important than the actual weight, but I need to lose weight in the process, too.

My Program:
I was too self-conscious to work out at a club or go swimming, but for the past month I've been doing both. I joined a club for people 50+ and absolutely love it. I'm taking swim lessons, mostly to make sure I actually get to the pool twice a week. I feel great after each gym/swim session, but it's still a stretch for me to actually WANT to go. My dog is keeping motivated for walks!

Personal Information:
My husband and I live on a ranch with horses, mules, llamas, cats and dogs . Soon it will be stall cleaning twice daily for at least 7 months. Super workout time that I had better utilize well.

    For some reason I was getting duplicates and so when I deleted them, the "original" activity entry was also deleted. Strange stuff happens sometimes. emoticon When I uploaded this picture of the Baxter ( the profile pix), there were triplicates of the picture in my photo album. When I deleted the two extra, it deleted all three. I then went thru the uploading the picture again, and it went thru fine. Must have been a glitch of some sort but my page seems to be okay now. ..... emoticon

    Have a good rest of the week!! emoticon
