Hi Turtles!
I just came back to using the spark people site. I love the idea that Turtles over 50 can reach their goals too. I have added on a lot of extra weight and do not have the energy to do things I would like. I have made the decision to lose weight slowly yet intentionally. I look forward to sharing and encourage each other along the journey.

I only lost .4 at Weight Watchers today. Ugh! Oh, Well at least I didn't gain.I can see that it will take me a long time to lose my weight but that is okay.Maybe I won't gain it back if I lose it slow.I figured out the culprit this morning.We had a buffet at Church Sunday and I ate too much.(a piece of cake plus some fried chicken)Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 days to catch up with you.I heard a quote that I like this week: "Tomorrow is a brand new day and it hasn't been touched."

Brooke,

You can find the Weight Ticker by Creating your own SparkPage, then in the "Edit" mode scroll down to the bottom part of the Page and you will find the Ticker and various Icons.
emoticonSparkPeople is FUN, FUN, FUN, but it can also be overwhelming at first. Please let me know if I can help you get set up in any way.
Just click on My Spark Page and you can send me mail or Friend me. The buttons are on the Upper Right side of the Page.
