The saying goes today is the first day of the rest of your life. Yes indeed it is, no matter what happens I can start each day fresh.

Well I am in my late 50's and I am really tired of waking up each morning and looking in the mirror and thinking I really need to get this weight off once and for all. I am tired of my knees aching me and being out of breath after only walking a very short distance. My grandchildren are more active and I would like to be active with them. This body of mine isn't getting any younger, but there is so much I want to do with it.

I hope we can be friends and cheer each other on in good days and bad days.

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. And remember you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. It takes time, determination, motivation and support. You can get it all right here! If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. If I can help in anyway, feel free to reach out to me! You can do it! We are here to help!
