But where does the extra weight suddenly come from after you turn 65?? I used to be able to take it off as soon as I tried, but now nothing is dropping off at all!! HELP!! I know God didn't make me in a fat image, so I'm seeking to get back to the person He created me to be. I know He loves me any way, but I don't love me this way! Excited to start this journey of Sparkpeople! Wed, 17 Jun 2015 04:40:43 EST I was younger when I left Spark Hello. I am Marie. The last time I was with Spark I was in my 50´s. Alas I am now 60 but I am very happy with my age. <BR> <BR> I went through a lot of stress and gained weight, but even though I have a lost a few kilos I need to lose more. <BR> <BR> I am a practicing Christian and very much to feel I have found a niche here.

When family crisis becomes a priority and needs our attention we tend to forget to take care of ourselves. I haven't gained any weight back and still need to lose 10lbs..but it is so nice to have people to talk with who have a common goal-good health! I've prayed for more resolve to get back on the straight and narrow. It is counter productive to make excuses. Take responsibility for our actions and go the way the Lord leads. I hope ea...
