I am proud of that, but It wasn't the healthiest diet! I hit a plateau for several months and was about to give up but then I came upon Sparkpeople and decided this was just what I needed to get me motivated again. So here I am, a 63 year old grandmother of one, and mother of one son. Want to stay healthy for them and myself! <em>213</em> Fri, 8 Jan 2016 11:16:38 EST HI http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x1563x63356572 I am 61 years old and going to try this again. I figure since the holidays are over this is the best time to start. Need to lose at least 50 pounds but right now if I can just get down to 200 that would make me so happy. Hoping to make some friends along the way that know the kind of things us mature women go through like MENOPAUSE. Hoping everyone has a great day and good luck on your journey, whatever it may be.

I had been on a team for women 50+ wanting to loose 25 to 50 pounds. Ha! Now I'm 60+ and have 50+ pounds to loose. That's what happens when you leave for almost 3 1/2 years. I've dropped 4 1/2 pounds since 7/15. Still got a long way to go. <BR> <BR> Hope to meet some nice people here to encourage and to be encouraged by on our journeys. <BR> <BR> Shouva Sun, 10 Aug 2014 21:48:01 EST Message Removed http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x1563x58712448 Message Removed Fri, 1 Aug 2014 15:49:53 EST Message Removed http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x1563x58461490 Message Removed Mon, 7 Jul 2014 21:36:42 EST Message Removed http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x1563x58388874 Message Removed Mon, 30 Jun 2014 20:44:36 EST 10% loss by 1-1-14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=131x1563x58384831 This is a personal Challenge for me and I would love for you to join me on my journey. <BR> Starting 7-1-14 through 1-1-15 post your weight on Tuesdays.

I am on the right track though. After seeing a diabetic nurse and nutritionist and finding this site 3 weeks ago I have lost 18 pounds and my blood sugars which were in the 180s are now down into the low 100s with a few 90s thrown in. My hope is to get my A1c down low enough to get off of some of the pills.
