Hello! I'm Marci and I signed up for SparkPeople last night for the third time. I've gone through seasons of losing weight and then gaining it back. This past year a lifetime of poor choices caught up with me and my health hasn't been great. I was diagnosed with prediabetes. I an ready make the lifestyle changes to reverse that diagnosis and lose the weight for good. I'm nervous beginning again but also excited.

Hi my name is Kathryn and have been on Spark for many years. I lost almost 50 pounds and put on some when my hubby fall and broke his neck. He is a functioning quadriplegic with limited use of his arms and legs. We have caretakers that come in for a few hours 6 times a week but I am his main caretaker.

I have taken off the weight I put on after his fall and have about 30 more pounds to take off. I have lost a little over 6 pounds this month by tracking what I eat and staying in my allotment for the day.

I love to take walks and do that mostly for my exercise. I have hurt my knee and am unable to take the long wslks I was doing. I am doing chair exercise to fill in until my knee is better.

Kathryn, Sacramento, CA Pacific time, I am doing the best I can that will have to be enough

emoticon My name is Janet. I have been losing 5 pounds and gaining 5 pounds for a few years. I Have started and stopped Spark People 3 times but this time I am determined to lose 40 pounds. I am 68 yrs old, Married 45 yrs. and today is my 50 yr. class reunion. I wanted to lose weight before the reunion but didn't. I walk a lost but that isn't enough to help me lose weight. I said it before but this week I want to sign up at the local gym Court Sports to swim. They finally have Silver and Fit and my insurance finally has it this year too. I think swimming will be good exersize for me because I have arthritis. My husband and I have one son and one daughter. Both are married and they have given us 11 grandchildren. Five are adopted.

Linda, I am about 30 miles south of Bella Vista. I hope this terrible weather missed you. Lots of flooding about 60 miles south of us along the Arkansas River. I feel so bad for people suffering from all the floods and tornados. I guess every part of the country has something different to deal with.

I need to lose about 30-40 pounds but would be happy with 15. Itís so hard after age 50 to do. My doctor says Iím prediabetic, so another goal is to get my fasting blood sugars below 100. I Plan to eat more veggies, avoid added sugars, and walk some every day.

Keep moving!

Nancy

Hello to all,
I am Linda from Missouri. Have been on Spark several years but recently had some health issues so trying to be more committed to living a healthy lifestyle. Seen this team while browsing and it looked like a good fit. Looking forward to sharing this journey with each of you.

Nancy, my son and his family live in Bella Vista, is that close to you?

Hello. Iím Nancy, 70 yrs old and live alone in northwest Arkansas. I retired 4 yrs ago from a hospital where I had worked for 31yrs. I was a licensed practical nurse and worked on the pediatric floor for most of my career.

I go to Silver Sneakers classes 2 or 3 times a week and enjoy it. I go for walks also and mow my own yard.

I have one grown daughter who lives about 12 miles away and no grandchildren. I love to readóespecially mysteriesó and belong to a book club at our library. I also like to watercolor although Iím not very talented at it. Almost forgot to say I have one yellow cat that keeps me company.

Keep moving!

Nancy

Welcome to all new members! Just reading over and learning about you!

I don't get on here as much as I would like to but it is great to meet you all!

I have a 89 year old mother who lives with me and she is a blessing. Took me a while to realize that. I guess we get wiser with age. I have three grown children and five grands so far...more to come! Love this big family that is growing and that's what keeps me busy and away from SPARK!

Hello, my name is Kathleen. I am new to your group but not new to Spark. I have been on Spark since 2012. Jumping between different groups, trying different approaches to weight loss, I managed to lose thirty pounds. Now I am working on losing the last twenty pounds to reach a healthier and comfortable weight for me.

I am married, retired and my husband and I live in the north east part of the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. I have two adult married children and three grandchildren.

I keep myself busy and active. I like to get out and walk daily. I walk on the treadmill at the gym four days a week. When I am home I enjoy quilting, reading and knitting. I probably spend a little too much time on Spark , LOL, but I really enjoy the interaction and support I get from all the friendly people here.

Hi all. My name is Anne and Iím 64. Iím a happily married mother of three adult children who are now all doing their own thing. Like many people, my weight has crept up over the years until I am now feeling the worse for wear, with various medical problems. I realised it was time I bit the bullet and did something about it so here I am. I hope that, together with you all, I will be able to make the changes I need to, in order to live a long and healthy life. I am not much for speaking out in public, but I will be hovering in the background here on most days. Thanks for having me

SO many birthdays in July Jackie, mine is the 1st, what about yours? I think I'm reversed on the caretaker thing. With my parents it built slowly over the last 10 years. Hubby is turning 75 this week but he's a healthy 75. Trying to get some traveling in while we still can. I had to have rotator cuff surgery several years back on my right arm so I understand the becoming ambidextrous (had to look it up to spell it.)

Linda, I will be checking out your blog. Impressive on the 7.5 lbs.

See you on the Greetings board Debbie?

Debbie nice to see you here. Hi Linda. Sorry Ridge_Runner I got you beat July 59.

I was caretaker for my husband his last two years, and am about to take on the role for my parents. Having a support system is so important.

Have a great Friday.

I'm sorry about the loss of your husband Linda. It looks like you're healing your body and your soul with all that you're doing. How is the Move program working for you right now? Looks like I'll have to keep my arm around your shoulder as I AM the older one. (my birthday is in July 1960)

Welcome SingBHappy2D ! You'll be able to do that 5k. emoticon Being a caregiver is difficult. People don't understand what you give up to do so. Please make sure you build outside relationships also, I am discovering from my own experience that it makes things even more difficult when the people you have devoted every moment to because you love them so much, are no longer there.

I've probably spent more time LOOKING for the right "team" on here than what I SHOULD have been doing. That said, I THINK I FOUND YOU !

I'm still (barely) in my 50's. After working for years and building a solid foundation, hubby and I were ready to retire. I quit smoking for health and gained almost 50 lbs over the past 15 years. I started taking care of foster babies and wound up with a new child (now turning 21) and of course hubby thought she needed a dog. During her transition to adulthood, I began taking care of my parents. In 2018, both of my parents and my dog passed and the daughter has been gone for a few years, so I'm ready for a new unfamiliar beginning.

Eat right,
Healthy Weight,
Drink more water, more tea, less wine.
Yoga for strength
Walking for health
Music for my mind

Hi, my name is Karin (soon to be 52) and I'm a returning Spark member. I have done great keeping the weight off since first leaving Spark but... my eating habits have slowly declined and my quality of life has become diminished. Recent changes in my health are necessitating me to either make changes or slowly kill myself (I know that sounds drastic - but really it's the truth). Initially, this lit a fire under me but that soon died. I have come to realize I need the tools and such I got when I first came to Spark. For me to change I a) need to start holding myself accountable b) need to monitor and chart goals and progress and c) most importantly what I need is the caring support and encouragement I received from the Spark community. Without it, I would never have succeeded and I feel the same way now. So with fragile hope in my abilities, I'm starting this new journey and it's awesome to be back!

Hello everybody. My name is Barb and I have been a member here on Spark people for a very long time. I did write something on here last night, but I don't think it got through so I'm trying this again.
I have missed coming here and I so I'm coming back.
I can remember some of the people that were here, like Delores from South Bend, Sherry from Alberta Canada, Donna from New York Jean from Texas. Etc. I can go on, but there are just to many people.
I think I'm going go for right now, but I will try to get back later if I can.

I am Tim, 54 and retired (ok, quit working) 6 years ago and emigrated to the Philippines. I was a single dad forever and when my kids grew up, I retired early and had to find a country I could afford, without working. I was 108 kg when I got here and got up to 116 before I decided to get off my lazy butt and start walking. I lost 22 kg in 7 months and maintained it for about a year. Over the last few months I put 5 kg back on... so time to track again.

I have 2 grown kids. My daughter is married and has 2 girls of her own. Next year I am planning a trip back to the US, to file for my retirement. While there I can meet my 2 granddaughters.

I'm Julie. I am 63, married for 44 years, 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. We are also host parents to two Japanese students. I live in California and love being active, going to community events, concerts, theater, the beach, museums, and travel. However, I hate exercise for exercise sake. I have arthritis and often pain tries to rear its ugly head and keep me down. I hope we can encourage one another.

Hi. My name is Anna. Retired and moved to Texas. Married, no kids, 2 cats. We also had two dogs who passed away not too long ago. Enjoy stamping and doing greeting cards but havenít done that for a while. Hope to get back to it soon. We learned how to play bocce and enjoy it. Been walking and finding lots of different places to explore in the area. Like listening to muusic (golden oldies, country and some pop). Had been maintaining my weight for several years but the last couple of years gained approx. 20 lb. Keep trying to get it off but lose about 5 and then gain it back. Need to start getting serious about getting this extra weight off!

Hi All, I'm 56 with some limited mobility due to arthritis. I live in Utah and I am looking for some motivation to get up and get out to get moving. I have trouble finding someone local as a workout buddy so I'm looking for some gentle nudges from here.

Hi everyone! I'll be turning 51 this summer and grappling with inactivity and weight gain over the last 5 years that has left me facing middle age with a bit of dread. I'm looking forward to turning things around now with healthy food and activity so I can greet the coming years optimistically and adventurously! Well, that's the plan anyway :)

Welcome!

I am Linda, age 67, and have been on Sparkpeople for 10 years almost! I recently started eating vegan. I have a husband and two kitties. No children, long story you don't want to hear.
I had to retire due to health. Dh is younger and in law enforcement, so we are both looking for the day he can retire.

I am working on my health. You get one thing fixed and something else breaks (not literally, but you know what I mean!) So not giving up and believing I can and will be healthier!

Hi everyone, I'm Lydia from the north Okanagan in BC, Canada. I was active on Sparkpeople years ago and want to get back to some of my tracking habits. My health goals are mainly to get stronger and feel more energetic.

I'm a fifty year old mom to three boys, two teens and a 10 year old. I work from home doing bookkeeping and some writing, so it's easy to fall into a very sedentary life. We started canoe camping last summer and just brought a canoe to do more.I am a crafter, a photographer and a gardener.

Hello everyone. My name is Isabel and I live in southwestern Oregon. I am married, no kids, and retired 2 years ago. I enjoy photography, weaving, glass fusing and slumping, and have recently taken up pottery. I'm trying to stay active and enjoy life and believe that I could accomplish this goal better if I dropped some weight.

Hi my name is Leslie. I have 3 kids. One is in high school, one is in college, and one is married with 2 kids. My grands are 9 & 6. I am lucky enough not to have to work, so I have a lot of time on my hands. I get bored, which is where a lot of the over eating comes from. Hoping to get it under control!
