My goals are to become stronger, have more energy and be more outgoing. I'm a loner by nature and that tendency has become stronger as I get older. Also, because I've regained weight that I had previously lost, I don't want to go out and be with people because I don't feel good about myself. That's probably my biggest challenge. <BR> <BR> I'm here to be encouraged and to encourage others. <em>30</em> Sat, 11 Jan 2020 08:32:26 EST Christmas Cards http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9901x72757308 How many of you still send out and like to receive Christmas Cards via the post? <BR> Fri, 6 Dec 2019 06:43:24 EST Has losing weight improved your overall health? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9901x72041473 For me: definitely.

When these triglyceride levels are high, HDL (good) cholesterol levels tend to be low, a combination that is associated with an increased risk for heart disease. Losing just 10% of your body weight (25 pounds for someone who weights 250 pounds), can improve your cholesterol levels. <BR> Roz.

I'm 62, & have recently left a Tops group, where I had gained 3 lbs. Previously I lost 25 lbs with Weight Watchers online. My goal is to lose 15 lbs before Christmas. Slow & steady. Nothing seems to be working for me any more, so taking it one day at a time. My hobby is sewing. Looking forward to the team goals, hopefully they will keep me on track. <em>41</em> Thu, 23 Jul 2015 07:39:28 EST WEIGHT LOSS JULY 13 THROUGH JULY 26 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9901x62019038 Results for the 2 weeks ending July 12 <BR> <BR> Lost <BR> <BR> <em>250</em> Jeanne <BR> <em>345</em> Charlie <BR> <BR> Maintaining <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> Donna <BR> <em>242</em> Gaye <BR> <em>380</em> Kay <BR> <em>244</em> Nell <BR> <em>242</em> Vivienne <BR> <BR> Working on Goals <BR> <BR> <em>306</em> Over 60's Team <BR> <BR> Wed, 15 Jul 2015 19:24:52 EST JULY: QUESTION OF THE DAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9901x61895153 Yesterday's answer: True <BR> <BR> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Beta-carotene is a form of which vitamin? <BR> <BR> <BR> Vitamin A <BR> Vitamin B <BR> Vitamin C <BR> Vitamin D Wed, 1 Jul 2015 00:14:44 EST JULY - WHAT'S HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9901x61893284 I thought I’d start the new threads while I was thinking about it.
